New format for 2019 Hancock Prospecting Australian Championships

 

Swimming Australia will launch the new format for 2019 Hancock Prospecting Australian Championships at the SA Aquatic and Leisure Centre in Adelaide from April 7-12, 2019.


The key focus of this competition will be the inclusion of:

 


What this means for swimmers…
The new framework provides a renewed focus for junior competition and will be advantageous to swimmers by providing a more equal platform to compete, in turn retaining swimmers in the sport longer and allow them to develop at a more suitable pace.

What this means for coaches…
The Australian Swimming Framework (ASF) seeks to outline the optimal pathway for emerging junior swimmers through to elite athletes. It details the areas of focus and the necessary support network for each step of a swimmers’ development.
 
The ASF already has heavily informed the Competition Framework, ensuring that we provide more opportunities for athletes to compete and have a renewed focus for our national competitions.


Coaches can gain further insight in the effects of maturation on athlete development and recommended guidelines for appropriate development of training plans through the new Swimming Australia coach education program which now includes modules on this topic.

What this means for parents…
Swimming Australia is fully committed to providing competition structures appropriate to the development and maturation of children who participate in the sport. Most importantly, parents want their children to enjoy their involvement in the sport. These changes would provide long term benefits for swimmers and the sport.

New Competition Framework

NEW COMPETITION FRAMEWORK TO TAKE US TO TOKYO

 

With Swimming Australia soon to announce the venues and locations for National events leading into Tokyo 2020, we’re pleased to share our Competition Framework, a framework that aims to connect State and National competitions, informed by a philosophy for junior swimmers that focusses on technique, development and enjoyment.
 
The Australian Dolphins Swimming Team is one of the Nation’s most reliable international performers and we have consistently delivered on the international stage over numerous Olympic and Paralympic cycles. Within Swimming, there is always a desire to improve, and in fact a necessity to do so if we are to remain at the forefront of the sport. As part of our four-year strategy to Tokyo 2020, we reviewed competition structures with the aim of improving the competition pathway from entry into national level competition, to the elite stage in the sport.
 
The key drivers of the change being to develop a framework that focuses on optimal performances at key periods in a season, alignment of competitions across the States and Regions, and a philosophy on youth development for senior performance.
 
Wayne Lomas, Executive Manager High Performance, said that the Competition Framework was developed in partnership with State Associations, ASCTA and our High Performance partners, drawing on the extensive research already conducted as part of the Australian Swimming Framework.
 
“The Australian Swimming Framework (ASF) seeks to outline the optimal pathway for a junior swimmer all the way through to elite. It details areas of focus and the necessary support network for each step of a swimmers development," Said Lomas.
 
“The ASF has heavily informed the Competition Framework, ensuring that we provide more opportunities for mature athletes to compete and have a renewed focus for our junior competitions.”
 
Jamie Salter, Swimming Australia Pathways Manager, said that the changes to our Age Championships would provide long term benefits for swimmers and the sport.
 
“For young swimmers, their age and the difference in physical size and strength have a big impact on their swimming times,” Salter said.
 
“This often results in some swimmers gaining an advantage and at the same time, discouraging others, purely based on the month of the year that they were born.
 
“With compelling research and supported by our state partners, we all agreed that the minimum age for athletes to compete needed to be increased over time, and that this would be different for boys and girls due to girls maturing earlier."

 

The Framework is available at https://www.swimming.org.au/Assets/Documents/Swimming-Australia-Competition-Framework_Oct2017.aspx

Become a Swimming Tasmania Official Today!

 

Guide for those working with Children in Swimming Clubs!

Please read our PDF Guide here!

Working with Children Registration applies to people within all sectors including club and association activity.
Sport and recreation plays a pivotal role in children’s development. It is important that safe environments
are provided for all children who participate in this sector.

 

Becoming an official is easy and fun!

Check out our brief flyer with details on why and how you can join in the fun!

Without the commitment of our State's dedicated Technical Officials we would not be able to hold any competitions in Tasmania. Here's why some of our current officials officiate:

“Spirits are high and we have fun on pool deck but we never lose sight of the role we play in supporting
our swimmers” – Jayne Shepherd

“The feeling you are making a difference: without officials kids could not compete. It is great to
watch them grow and improve” – Fiona Lockwood

“Because of the friends made locally and nationally, you get the best seat at national meets and witness great achievements by our top swimmers” – Tracey Rowell

Experienced officials will train, shadow and mentor you to enable you to learn at your own pace. You do not have to be a full on Referee right away, or ever! Don’t leave it up to someone else – get involved in a fun and social aspect of our sport. Contact Swimming Tasmania to arrange a chat with a mentor official for a relaxed introduction during an event.

Check out the flyer!

 

'The best seat in the house' - Jayne Shepherd

"I completed officials training in preparation for the South Esk Centenary Sprint meet in 2011 and have been on pool deck with the ‘best seat in the house’ ever since!" Read Jayne's story here...

 

 

Why I officiate - Fiona Lockwood

Fiona Lockwood, a senior official in Tasmania who was recently appointed to the Commonwealth Games trials at the Australian Championships, has read about why she officiates. Read all about it here!

 

Enjoyment of being an Official - Tracey Rowell

Tracey Rowell, one of the leading officials in Tasmania, has prepared a brief story outlining her experiences as an official and the enjoyment she gets from the role. Read about her journey, the places she's been, friends made and experiends had since taking up the role! A very interesting read indeed!

 



Officiating in Tasmania

Technical Officials play an important role in the conduct of swim meets and Swimming Tasmania are committed to providing the support and recognition to our Officials to keep them on pool deck and involved in our sport. 

In Tasmania Officials are required to be members of Swimming Tasmania - this membership is Free, with more information available under Membership.

Swimming Tasmania will always welcome expressions of interest from parents and volunteers wishing to have a go at officiating.

Officials are the cornerstone of competition and without them competitions wouldn't exist. If you are interested in learning more then please do Contact Us.

AUSTRALIAN AGE CHAMPIONSHIPS (APRIL 2016)

 

More than 1700 swimmers from 296 will converged on the SA Aquatic and Leisure Centre, Adelaide last week for the 2016 Georgina Hope Foundation Australian Age Swimming Championships.  Swimmers between the ages of 12 and 18 were eligible to compete upon obtaining a national qualifying time in their favourite event(s).  

 

The Tasmanian contingent included 22 swimmers from 6 clubs together with further 3 swimmers living and training in Queensland and an overseas student from China.

 

With the high number of competitors, heat sessions were long and hotly contested.  No doubt this would be a real learning experience for first timers.

In winning the silver medal as the 2nd place Australian Sophie improved another 0.49 seconds, breaking the record once again in a time of 1/04.54.

 

In the longer event, the Girls12/13 200m Butterfly Sophie swam a 0.74 sec improvement, breaking her own Tasmanian Record in a time of 2/24.08.  Placing 3rd in the final she smashed that record when posting a time of 2/21.59.

 

In her 3rd event for the Championships Sophie swam a time of 1/12.51 - competing in the Girls12/13 100m Backstroke.
