Fet Svømmeklubb and Sørumsand IF svømmegruppe invite you
to a meet to test yourself
Saturday Saturday April 22nd 2023, 16.00 hrs
We wish all swimmers from near and far a warm welcome to a very special meet organized just for you. The aim is for this to be organized approximately every six months, once in the pool at Dalen school, the other time in the pool at Frogner (eventually in the new pool at Sørumsand). The idea is that you regularly get the opportunity to measure progress in your training in the pool, meet others who use swimming to keep fit, and maybe get some training tips or suggestions for improvements in your own swimming technique. We will do our best to create a good atmosphere and a relaxed and pleasant setting around the meet.
The meet will take place in the swimming pool at Dalen skole, Dalheimveien 55, 1903 Gan.
The pool is 25 meters long with 5 lanes, separated by wave-breaking lane ropes.
The water temerparture is about 29-30 degrees C.
15:30 hrs – Warm-up
15:30 hrs – Start of meet
NO REGISTRATION FEE
This is an innovation that we would like to try out together with you. Also this third time it will be free to participate.
Registration is done via a google form on this link.
QUESTIONS can be directed to Roar A. Olsen, e-mail: firstname.lastname@example.org.
We keep it simple this first time and provide free coffee and waffles for all participants.
TEAM MANAGER’S MEETING – WITHDRAWALS – LATE REGISTRATIONS – HEATLISTS:
No separate team manager’s meeting is held for this meet. Late registrations and cancellations are reported directly to the secretariat. Final heat lists will be drawn up after cancellations and late registrations. A preliminary heat list with a tentative timetable is made available via a news item on www.fetsk.no.
Our meet will list unofficial times only. Our proposal is that the participants take part in two events, a 100m freestyle to test their own maximum swimming speed, and either a 500m freestyle or a 1000m freestyle to test their own swimming endurance. You can choose to participate in a single event. It is not possible to swim both 500m and 1000m, here you choose what suits you best based on where you stand as of today. We want to have the main focus on contributing to the development of a sense of mastery and better skills. We will not rank the swimmers, but the swimmers will know their unofficial times, set up in alphabetical order. For the time being, there will be no awards of any kind.
100 meter freestyle: you can swim the swimming style you want and change your swimming style as many times as you want along the way. Those who wish can start with a dive from a starting platform, but it is perfectly fine if you prefer to start down in the water. You swim in your own lane.
500 meter freestyle: you can swim the swimming style you want and change your swimming style as many times as you want along the way. The start takes place in the water. There will be two swimmers in each lane, each using their own half throughout the distance.
1000 meter freestyle: you can swim the swimming style you want and change swimming style as many times as you want along the way. The start takes place in the water. There will be two swimmers in each lane, each using their own half throughout the distance.
A maximum of two races can be chosen per participant, event 1 and one of events 2 or 3.
