2007/08 Bells & Foxys Summer Development Series

General Information

Welcome to the general information page on Swimming ACT’s Summer Development Series known as the Bells & Foxys Summer 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 Summer 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 long course time achieved for an event since 22 September 2006 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 long course time established since 22 September 2006.

Series Points

Series points are awarded against times established at Series meets. Points will be calculated using the swimmer’s Series Time – that is the best time achieved by the swimmer for that event at a 2007-08 Summer Series meet.

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 nine (9) 50m and 100m freestyle, backstroke, breaststroke and butterfly and the 200 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 final ranking will be worked out using all the points you gained during the Series. To determine which group you fall into your status (Intermediate or Development) and your age on Friday 14 March 2008 (the first day of the ACT 2008 Championships) will be used.   You will also take this ‘special’ age with you into Series Meet #4 on Sunday April 6 which will be both the Development Championship and the ACT 8 & under Age Championship. 

 

If a swimmer does not swim an event during the Series, their current best long course time as at the 6 April 2008 (achieved since 22 September 2006) 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.

 

 

Swimming ACT hopes you enjoy participating in the Series.

notes:

The Series break time for 13 and over is set at the 13 years Championship qualifying time.

Series break times have been derived for 50m form strokes (backstroke, breaststroke and butterfly) based on the 100m Championship qualifying times and are shown in tables above in ( ).

There are no Championship qualifying times for swimmers aged 8 and under.
