Applying for Auckland Records
The Onus is on YOU to make application to have your
record-breaking performance ratified.
** Know what the records ARE - for your events
** If you even think you have bettered one - make an application
** You have ten days to lodge the application, for an Auckland
Record. The reason for the time limit is, that the same record could
be broken more than once within a short period
** You or your agent (- that can be the coach, parent, team manager)
must use the Auckland Association’s record application form
** If you break an Auckland record out-of-town, then forms need to
be taken with you. The reason is that the forms need to be signed
by the officials on duty for your race. The officials have to be
qualified to AND attached to the form, must be a copy of the
deck-card, timekeepers slip or other data which show the
swimmer’s name, event, lane, time etc
** The ASA Registrar must have all the data and the form
WITHIN TEN DAYS OF THE SWIM
MAKE SURE - don’t leave it to someone else.
New Zealand Record applications are the responsibility of the host of the meeting to make the application - but it pays to check that this has been done on your behalf.
“In no case will any application ( for a NZ record) be considered after 21 days.”
Note: It is “after 10 days for an Auckland record.”
ASK for information, if you want to make a special attempt on a record.
Special conditions apply.
There is nothing AUTOMATIC about having records recognised.
