Dear IBSC swimmers and parents,
We appreciate the attendance of swimmers and parents at IBSC's Team Briefing for the ASUM/NSC/MILO Mid and Long Distance Swimming Championship 2017 held this morning, 18 Oct, 2017.
Just to recap the important points :
Sessions & Warm-Up Time
The competition sessions start at 8:30 am daily at National Aquatic Centre, Bukit Jalil, Kuala Lumpur Sports City. If you have morning events, please be at the pool for warm-up by 7:00 am.
Order of Events
Scratching/Withdrawal of Events
If you wish to scratch any events, please inform the Team Manager, Mr Vincent Low immediately or before Friday 4pm. on 20 Oct, 2017 as cancellation of event is NOT allowed on the day of competition, otherwise a penalty of RM25/event is imposed for a NS.
Selection of relays will be based on best times swum during the competition or best personal times available. The Team Managers and Coaches reserve the rights to select the best relay swimmers for each age group and their decisions shall be final.
Please take note that we will have our group photos daily during lunch break. Please gather together when notified so that you don't missed out the photo session.
No Access to Control Room/Pool deck
Only the Team Managers are allowed to the Control Room to deal with the officials. No parents are allowed at all times at the pool deck or marshaling zone.
In the case of a Disqualification (DQ), please request your Team Manager to check on the reason(s) for the DQ within 30 minutes, as parents are not allowed into the Control Room.
Team Attire for Swimmers & Parents
The team attire will be as follows:
21 Oct, 2017 (Sat) : Royal blue T-shirt/black shorts
22 Oct, 2017 (Sun) : Army Green T-shirt/grey shorts
If you do not have any of the above t-shirts, you may wear any IBSC T-shirts or similar colour tees. Please DO NOT wear any other thematic T-shirts displaying other team names or Malaysia aquatic to avoid disciplinary actions.
Please ensure you have your IBSC caps on during the race especially relay events.
Meals and Refreshments
Snacks and lunches will be provided by IBSC to the swimmers for the 2 days. Please bring your own supply of water. Parents who wanted to pre-book lunch can contact the Team Manager.
If swimmers plan to skip lunch for any reason, please do inform the Chaperone so that your food is not pre-ordered and wasted. All swimmers are obliged to collect their own lunches before the cut off of 2:00pm each day. Uncollected lunch will be redistributed to avoid wastage.
All team IBSC swimmers must sit in a group so that it is easier to locate for swimmers in relays and to gather swimmers for photography. IBSC seatings should be tentatively above the control room next to the VIP seating as indicated with IBSC flags and banners.
Displaying good sportsmanship is vital in any sporting event. The EXCO expects all swimmers to carry the good name of IBSC during the swim meet. All swimmers are to respect each other including your competing peers and adhere to the rules and regulations of the meet and instructions of the Team Managers/officials and coaches.
Please also be reminded that the diving platforms and springboards are out of bounds. Do not be playful around the pool deck or marshaling zone to avoid any untoward incidents. Any delinquent swimmer can be subject to disciplinary action.
School Leave Letter
The school leave letters have been distributed to swimmers. If you require a copy, please download letter.
Parents are advised by the stadium board to park their cars at the public parking zones, nearest being Parking D behind Axiata Arena stadium (formerly where Subway was located). Transport via LRT would be most feasible.
