Hi Swimmers, Coaches, Parents,
(Update: we are just testing and trialling this but please get on and give it a go for this Sprint meet)

Some quick tips on how to use PositiveCheckin.com for SGC meets. Things change. One day we may be swimming, the next we cant for any number of reasons.

When you checkin as "swimming" or "withdrawing" from an event, notification is sent to the meet operator immediately, and you cant change that checkin once the operator has processed the checkin received.....

So, some basic tips to help us all run a smooth meet:

1: Set yourself up an account when you get 5 minutes and have a look around. Get familiar with how the interface works. watch the youtube video's to get a bit of an idea of what happens.

2: Checkin as close to the prescribed checkin time as possible, unless you 100% know you will or wont be swimming the event on the day.

3: If you are withdrawing from an event and 100% know that to be the case, you can checkin anytime following online meet registration closure. You can check in for one event, or multiple events.

4: If there is a call for general checkins before the session starts, check in for all events that are in that session.

5: If the referee makes an announcement during a meet (for example "All swimmers for the 800mtr event please check in before 2:30pm" then using positive checkin, check your swimmers in and let the operator know if you are swimming or not.

Hope these help.

Hi there, I tried to register but didn’t receive the email to finalize my registration. When I try to log in it’s saying I don’t have an account and when I try to register again it’s saying that I already have an account. 🤔🤔🤔 I have 3 sons swimming tomorrow. Who do I need to let know that they are all swimming all their events? And how do I finalize my registration? Thanks Ulrike

If you have not yet registered for an account, here is a link to a playlist of videos we have cobbled together at the region to help you out. www.youtube.com/watch?v=p-zjhI_tRFQ&list=PLYo3Xs8fmuAGiVBxgRivVzKSWlEYZhCnj

Hi Swimming Parents, this weekend SGC will be first in Australia to implement Self Marshalling at club level events. Yeap, sounds scary right? It's different right? It will probably all go wrong, right? Wrong.....

We can all come together and do this as well as, if not better than, the other countries that have been doing it for years.

Three simple steps and we can 'ALL' make this a positive change.

1: Ensure your swimmers are aware of the change and understand they need to "turn up" at the start end of the pool a few heats before their race. It would help the younger ones if you write their heats and lane numbers on their arm so they remember them. (and so the lane chiefs can spot it). Keep an eye and ear on which event is swimming in the pool. The same as you would listen to "Marshalling to event x" Announcements, listen for "in the pool" announcements.

2: Point your swimmers to their coaches. Coaches are across the process and the first ones to assist their squads. Your swimmer should be sitting with their team, and close to their coach. Your coach may need the help of a team manager, put your hand up and volunteer to assist all swimmers. Most important, talk with your clubs coaches and work together as a team to make sure your swimmers get the most from any meet.

3: Yeap, it can be scary when something changes, but it's usually us as parents that get worried, our kiddoes are very smart. Given the information in a positive and reassuring way, our kiddoes will make it happen. Just watch! Reassure them and have them report to their coach for final instructions.

Spare a thought for the clubs making this happen this weekend. They are volunteers just like all of us. Help them by volunteering where possible, by doing that time keeping role, by stepping up when asked. if you cant, work between your team members to figure out how you can help.

All Tech Officials on deck, as well as all volunteers in pink or orange vests, are there to help. Don't hesitate to ask any questions, don't hesitate to provide all positive input. Suggestions are fantastic, negativity helps no one. There are many digital and face to face opportunities to provide input to the process and help make this a fantastic transition for all swimming in Australia. If you want to know how this will tick, check out self marshalling under the resources tab on swimmingoldcoast.org.au

Cant wait to see you all at one of the two meets this weekend!

Good luck this weekend. Hope the new self marshalling goes off without a hitch.

We were part of this at the Bond meet today. Our 9 year old daughter had no problems!

Not true , Rick Curl (ex Carlile , ex prison) tried it in the 2000's told us all it must be the best way because it was the way they did it in the USA. Strange they don't use this method in the Olympics or World Champ's or any major meet.

Thank you to all the swimmers that took part in the regional relays.

A big shout out 🗣 of thanks to Warren Dopson in working to put all these teams together and also Michelle Schafer who organised our great team uniforms. The swimmers and team managers looked fantastic! Things don’t magically happen ... it is with many hours and great work by our volunteers. 💪

Thank you also to all the team managers that did an amazing job in organising the swimmers for today. It was with much pride as I started the girls races today and saw so many amazing swims and great sportsmanship around the pool.

The swimmers performed incredibly well with 5 Golds, 3 Silvers and 5 Bronzes, including a QLD record in the 12Yr Girls Medley Relay.

Thank you to all for your great work today in working together as a great team for Swimming Gold Coast.
