SNZ have tightened the criteria for swimmers times to be accepted for entry into national meets (eg Juniors, Divv II, NAGS, Opens, etc). For times to be used this form must be completed for the meet and submitted to SNZ. As shown on the form, to be recognised a meet must have the following minimum number of officials:

  • 1 Referee
  • 2 Judge of Strokes
  • 2 Inspector of Turns for every 3 lanes (one at each end)
  • 3 Timekeepers per lane (1 if electronic timing is used).

These rules apply equally to all meets (Race Night, Club Champs, Our Club meets, Other clubs meets, Regional meets, etc).

At present we have a few qualified IOT’s and Starters (Thank- you to those who have trained and recently qualified). We are reliant on a very small number of qualified Referees / Judge of Strokes who have not had children swimming at the club for a number of years. Without these people we would not be able to run Race Nights and Club Champs.

If we want to continue to be successful as a club and we want our swimmers/your children to complete at National meets, we need you to be trained as an official (and to volunteer at the meets you are attending).

Please contact Vicki to arrange for training to occur.

05 Feb

Flyer for the main day of club champs is now available on the calendar page. Remember we require lots of parents to assist with timekeeping, recording, etc. As a condition of entry, swimmers are expected to have a parent available to assist. Parents don't forget your togs for the Family relay.

The HPK committee would like to thank all the parents, swimmers and supporters for the great effort they have put into the fund raising activities we had been conducting over the past 18 months.

We are pleased to announce that with the money raised from these events and the success of two grants that we applied for (Lion Foundation and Auckland Council) we have enough money to start with the next phase of the Howick Intermediate pool upgrade project.

So with the target amount of money having been reached for this project, it means that you will see a decrease in the amount of fundraising activities. We will, however, still be having some fundraising activities each year to help support the swimmers in other projects and equipment.

So once again thank you for all your hard work and support in the rising of these funds.
