How to claim a Record

It is the responsiblity of the swimmer/coach/parent to make application for the ratification of record(s).

Record claim forms will be available from the Record's Clerk.Record claim forms are to reach the chief Record's Clerks, Mr Darryl Reid within 21 days of the date of swim.It is strongly recommended that application for a record is made at the gala.

Records can only be claimed if the event is swim in a 50m pool (long course) or 25m (short course) and if registered officials were in attendance and if the gala was hend under the auspices of EPA/SSA.

It is the responsibility of the swimmer/coach/parent to ask the Chief Timekeeperfor three (3) timekeepers on a lane should the swimmer be attempting to swim a record time.

Should a swimmer wish to claim a record from a gala held outsdie the auspices of EPA the results sheet, in the case of electronic timing , is sufficient.

All records have to be ratified by the EPA Executive. Successful claims will be noted in the EPA minutes, copies of which are circulated to the clubs.

Club Secretaries are responsibile for claiming relay records for which all of the above applies.

We are extremely excited to have obtained a sponsorship for the B-Age Group and the Top 8 Galas namely 'SECOND SKINS'.
