2008 ‘Kippax’ Winter Development Series

General Information

Welcome to the general information page on Swimming ACT’s Winter Development Series known as the ‘Kippax’ series.   Hopefully the information here will go someway towards answering your queries. If you have any queries or concerns please raise them within your club and, if you need further assistance or clarification, contact Michael Doyle (our Competitions Director]. 
Here we go....

What is a ‘Division’?  Which one am I in?
Which one will I be in for the overall Series Pointscore? (read on......)

Divisions are simply a way of grouping competitors according to a criteria.   The Winter Development Series will recognise two divisions for award purposes:
 *   Development and Intermediate.   

Intermediate level times have been established for all Series events.  If your best short course time achieved for an event on or since 1 April 2007 is equal to or better than the Intermediate Level time (see below) then you are recognised as being at the Intermediate level for that event.

If I have a Birthday during the Series .....

If a swimmer changes age groups during the course of the Series their status will be reset according to the break times applying to the new age group.

Meet Entry Times

Your entry times should be your best short course time established on or since 1 April 2007.

Series Points

Series points are awarded against times established at Series meets. Points will be calculated using the swimmer’s Series Time.

Tracking Progress

Series pointscores will be posted as soon as possible following each meet.  Note: Swimmers will not have been separated into overall development or intermediate level during the Series. This will occur at the end of the Series.

At the end of the Series will I be Intermediate or Development for the Pointscore?

This is a good question and depends on each swimmer’s status at the end of the Series.   Any swimmer who is deemed to have five (5) or more, out of the ten (10) 50m and 100m freestyle, backstroke, breaststroke and butterfly and the 100m and 200m IM series events, classified as equal to or better than the Intermediate Level Time, will be an Intermediate level swimmer as far as the Series goes overall. Other swimmers will be Development level. 

 

Don't worry if you change age groups or between Development and Intermediate during the Series because all the points gained throughout the Series will stay with you. At the end of the Series your age on the day of the last meet and your status (Intermediate or Development) will determine which group you fall into and your final ranking will be worked out using all the points you gained during the Series.   If a swimmer does not swim an event during the Series, their current best short course time as at the date of the last Series meet will be taken into account and used to calculate the overall division for the swimmer.

Helping your Race Secretary

Please ensure that you know when your club Race Secretary is closing off entries for each Series meet and help them by getting your entries in on time

The Goal:   The goal of the Development Series is the achievement of ACT Shortcourse Championships Qualifying Times (ACT QTs for short), and over the page you’ll find for information, the QTs for the 2008 ACT Shortcourse Championships.

 

Swimming ACT hopes you enjoy participating in the Series.
