Warm-Up Guidelines

In the interest of swimmers safety, the following general pool procedures for the Competition Pool must be observed throughout the meet:

All lanes in the Competition Pool, with the exception of lane 1 are NO DIVING, with entry to the lane “feet first, from a sitting position”. Swimmers can only push start, and should observe a “keep left” rule at all times.

Lane 1 (Start End) is reserved throughout the whole of the warm up period for dive sprints and walk backs. Swimmers must clear the lane immediately, and must use caution when doing a Backstroke start.

Lane 8 will be available for warm-up and swim down for the duration of the meet. During the meet, strokes in Lane 8 will be restricted to Freestyle and Breaststroke.

Warm-Up will end at 11:20am.
