This meet wil not be operated on a first come basis.
HSC organise and run several Open Meets during the year. We always need help from Parents and members to ensure these events run smoothly and, as the saying goes, "Many hands make light work".
There are many jobs that need to be completed. It would be great if we could see some new faces this year as helpers. You do not need any experience as there is always someone running a Team that 'knows the ropes'.
There are many varying jobs, which actually come with a Team Halstead T-Shirt including -
Reception/Entrance - Selling programs, entry tickets, raffle tickets, cakes and refreshments. Everybody takes it in turns so that you can watch your swimmer when necessary.
Signing in - All swimmers are required to sign in prior to the Meet. This information then gets passed to the technical team to input into the Sports System which runs the meet.
Medal table - This is where swimmers go to receive their medals if they are placed 1st - 6th
Technical Team - Even if you are not technically minded (many people in the team are not, believe me), you can always learn how the Timing Systems are set up and work.
Marshalling Area/benches - Swimmers are called for their respective 'Events' and, as with all Open Meets, the Sports System works out who should be swimming and when. At the Marshalling Area, all the swimmers will be told when to start moving to the benches and what lane they will be swimming in. At each bench, the swimmer will be checked by the respective marshal to ensure swimmer are where they are supposed to be before their swims.
HSC Team Marshall's - Making sure swimmers go to the Marshalling Area for their events.
Pool side refreshment - Arguably one of the most important jobs. Making sure the Officials, HSC Coaches and helpers have drinks and sweets on poolside.
Runner - This is a one person job and doesn't actually involve running. At the end of each race the Head Official signs off the race result which then gets taken to the race control. At the end of each event, the event resulst need to be displayed for swimmers and separately for their doting parents to find out how their cherubs have done.

Due to the change in venues and the reduction in lanes our meet has been oversubsribed which meant we had to process our published "over the limit" criteria.
The criteria states that "entries may be partially declined if the numbers designated for each event are oversubscribed. In such cases lower cut off times will be introduced to limit numbers.
The promoter reserves the right to remove an even if deemed necessary in order to conform with ASA legislations
The not accepted - over the limit numbers have been kept to a minimum; we have removed the 100 IM for the 9 - 12 years. ALL OTHER EVENTS HAVE NOT BEEN AFFECTED.
We were advised a few days ago that the Braintree Swimming Centre will be colsed for a 9 week period for urgent repair work to the pool.
We have been busy seeking a new venue and have now confirmed a booking at Colchester Leisure World; this we believe is the best alternative in terms of location and all round facilities for all our regularly attending clubs.
The pool does only have six lanes and will reduce the quantatity of swims; FOR THIS YEAR ONLY WE WILL BE REMOVING THE 200 FREESTYLE AND LIMITING THE 100 IM to the 9,10,11 and 12 year ag groups.
We are sorry for any inconvenience that this may have caused in regards to processed entries; please accept our apologies, the decision especially in it's late notification has been completely out of our control.
Documents have now been update and downloadable here.
A new Sport System file will follow shortly.
If you have any further questions please don't hesitate to contact me.
