To ensure our swimming races run as smoothly as possibly on Saturday mornings it would be greatly appreciated if parents or suitable members could please assist with timekeeping duties. Even for a few races would be so helpful. More hands mean light work!
It’s very easy to do – just pick a lane and press the buttons on the blue stopwatches when your swimmer touches the wall. Then write down the times on the stopwatches onto the time sheet, in case we need to refer to them as a backup.
To make the races flow even smoother, we will be trialling a new procedure for timekeepers this Saturday. After you have written the watch times down onto the time sheet, place your hand up in the air, to let the Starter know they can start the next race.
We welcome any feedback or other suggestions for keeping races moving along.
