Timing Policy


CCAQ is responsible for timing at ALL meets we attend.   Please remember that all parents are required to time a one hour shift per session when your child swims. Timing chairs are calculated on swimmers and not families. Timing slots are on a first come, first serve basis. Please be courteous to the other parents by relieving them from their obligation on time. Direct denial of a coach’s appointment could cause consequences for the entire team and operation of the meet. Your cooperation is greatly appreciated.

Example: If you have two swimmers and one races in the morning session and one races in the afternoon session, you are responsible to time one hour in the morning and one hour in the afternoon.
Remember these tips:
~ Sign up for your shift as you arrive to the meet if you have not signed up prior to the meet on-line.
~ Pay attention to time so you are not late for your shift.
~ Know how to operate your stopwatch prior to the event. ~ Practice "start-stop-clear" several times before the event begins.
~ Pay attention at all times. It is easy to chat with your fellow timers and forget your stopwatch.
