9/16/22  Swimming and Diving Memo

I hope this finds everyone doing well. The swimming and diving regular season is flying by. It is hard to believe we are already halfway through the season.

Entering Results on Bound: It has taken a bit of time, but I think we are squared away on entering swimming and diving results, along with Team Power Points, on Bound. Thanks for your patience as the glitches were dealt with.

With the new import system now similar to how track and field coaches enter their results, JV times now show up in the Bound database. I have no problems with those times being in the database. If you have issues importing results, the Bound team encourages coaches to use the communication piece on the bottom right of your Bound page. If you are having problems getting a response from the Bound team, don't hesitate to contact me at [email protected].

Suit Coverage: This issue seems to be less of a problem than in past seasons, but as a reminder – Rule 3-3-2 reads, “… Suits shall be of one piece. A competitor shall not be permitted to participate wearing a suit that is not of decent appearance ... Females shall wear suits which cover the buttocks and breast and shall not extend beyond the shoulders or below the top of the kneecap, nor cover the neck.”

State Meet Schedule Change: By recommendation of the swimming and diving advisory committee, the State Diving Meet will be moved to Friday evening of the State Swimming and Diving Meet, with swimming prelims taking place. The state preliminary meet will tentatively start at 11 a.m. on Friday, November 11. The state diving competition is tentatively scheduled to start at 5:00 p.m. on Friday, November 12.  

Regional Sites: If you would like your swimming and diving facility to be considered as a host site for regionals, please be sure that your AD has filled out the Site Availability on Bound.
