Race Marshalling -  reminder to parents and swimmers. 

Swimmers need to be in marshalling area when events are announced.

Swimmers also need to be listening.

Their name is called 3 times for event.

If swimmer is still absent, they will be automatically disqualified.

There were a number of swimmers not available at the time of racing this week.

Their absence is not our responsibility!

This results in swimmers missing the event and then being disqualified from any following events. It’s your nominated race! It’s your responsibility to be present when called. No excuses!
