2011-12 Swimming & Diving – Points of Emphasis

  • Pre-meet conference with coaches and captains – Under Rule 4-2-1, the referee has the responsibility to meet with the coaches and captains through a pre-meet conference. General information and those items specific to the site should be covered at this time. These are some of the items that should be covered in the meeting:
    • Introductions.
    • Reminder that jewelry is not to be worn during warm-ups or competition.
    • Coaches confirm all contestants are in legal suits and in compliance with the jewelry rule.
    • Inform whether starting protocol will follow verbal starts or only whistle commands.
    • Confirm the type of starting device to be used to start races.
    • Remind that teammates should stay back away from the edge during races.
    • Cooperation is requested to have it quiet for the start of each heat/race.
    • Remind swimmers of the whistle to get swimmers on the blocks.
    • Cover warm-down procedures.
    • Diving warm-ups.
    • Review schedule of warm-ups following diving or in the absence of diving during the meet.
    • Remind of proper sportsmanship.
    • Good communication before the meet helps to ensure the competition will go smoothly for the contestants, coaches and officials.

2. Forward approach in diving – The definition of a legal forward approach in diving now permits the diver to have greater flexibility in his/her movement between the required initial three steps to begin the approach and the hurdle and two feet takeoff from the end of the board. The diver may include such movement as a hop, leap, steps, etc. before the culminating hurdle and takeoff. The variation in the approach is keeping pace with the trends in the event and athleticism of today’s high school divers.
