2017 Cambridge Spring Open Meet - L3
This Meet is now closed for New Entries
Due to the high number of entries for the events originally scheduled to run on Friday evening, we have taken the decision to move the 400m IM as follows:
- Girls 400m IM – this will now be at the start of Saturday Session 3
- Boys 400m IM – this will now be at the start of Sunday Session 5
We have not taken this decision lightly and have done so to enable the maximum number of swimmers to compete and to ensure sessions do not overrun and that our visiting clubs are not travelling home too late in the evening.
If any 400m IM swimmer has been adversely affected by the change in the programme and wishes to withdraw from either the 400m IM or any other of their races over the weekend then please contact firstname.lastname@example.org and we will arrange a refund.
For the full revised schedule please download the Arrangements on the Day document or the updated Meet Pack.
Backstroke Start Ledges
We plan to use backstroke ledges.
Coaches and Swimmers are reminded of the FINA laws related to the use of ledges: When using a backstroke ledge at the start, the toes of both feet must be in contact with the end wall or face of the touchpad.
Further information can be found on the CoCSC website: http://www.cocsc.org.uk/ledges.html
Swimmers must withdraw from events that they no longer wish to swim.
Withdrawals should be made via e-mail to email@example.com by midnight on Wednesday 22nd March 2017 stating the event number, full name, date of birth, entry time and club. Click Here for a Withdrawal Form
Any on the day withdrawals must be made by coaches or the club representative 1 hour prior to the start of the first event in each session, completed forms should be given to the meet promoter or volunteer co-ordinator via the computer desk.
Swimmers failing to attend the start of a heat without withdrawing will incur a £10 penalty, which must be paid by the swimmer or the club before the swimmer is allowed to participate further in the meet.
