Timing Requirements

2018-2019 BASS TIMING REQUIREMENTS

Timing at swim meets is a separate obligation from the mandatory volunteering requirements. Timing is a required part of volunteering with any swim team and no swim meet can get started without the appropriate timers on deck at the beginning of each session and to the end of each session. ALL teams are required to provide timers at every meet their team participates. The number of timers needed is based on the number of entries for each meet. BASS does not get the lane assignment or timing hours required for our team until days prior to the meet – once known, a schedule will be sent to the families participating in the meet. It is therefore the policy of BASS that if your child is swimming in the meet, then a parent or family member will be responsible for a timing position during the session in which your child participates*. For BASS-hosted, meets our team will not have any timing requirements. There is no timing requirements for parents who work as a USA swim official at non-hosted BASS meets.
