Greerton Winter Meet - Final Psych Sheets
|11.06||Hello Greerton swimmers, officials & administrators
You may have heard that big changes are afoot with a new national database called Stratum being implemented by Swimming New Zealand (SNZ) to keep a record of all swimmers, officials and administrators. This will be how registration will be completed for the upcoming swimming year from 1 July and how swimmers will enter meets in future.
Some clubs and regions are trialing this new system for their upcoming meets, however we have decided to run our upcoming Greerton Winter Champs on 3-5 July as we have in the past with entries to be placed using the entry envelopes at the pool or emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org - entries are due by Monday 22 June 6pm please.
The BOP SC Champs at Baywave on 17-19 July will be using online entries (they close on 08/07/15) - this currently open and you can now register your entries. Once you have your login and password you can go to www.swimming.org.nz and locate this meet via the Events and then drop down to Events Calendar tab.
Use your login and password at the bottom of the screen Already a Member?
Once logged in, tab across to Events, then drop down to Events Calendar, on Page 2 you will locate the BOP SC Champs. Click on Detail and then enter the Meet.
Please Note: NZ Aims games will also use this online entry process.
Shortly you will be sent a password reset email from SNZ which will enable you to go onto their site and set up login details if you haven't already (generally this has only been done by national meet swimmers). To gain access to the Swimming New Zealand members portal "My Page" it is crucial that you set your username and password. Within this portal you will be able to update your information, enter meets, enroll on courses and be kept up to date with national, regional and club news. Please do this as soon as possible and record your login details somewhere so you remember them! SNZ recommend that Google Chrome is used to set up your login if possible.
At this stage we are expecting subscription renewal to go live on 1 July but will notify you via email if this can be done sooner. This is not going to leave much time for renewing subscriptions prior to our Greerton Winter Champs, so all swimmers intending to compete must do this on 1-2 July or they won't be eligible to swim.
I would also like to take this opportunity to mention that I will be stepping down from my role after the Winter Champs and thank David Cadzow for taking it over. Thanks also to Ed Baggaley who will be processing meet entry fees for any meets that are not entered online via the new system. We'll email out contact details for David and Ed after the Winter Champs.
Thanks & regards
The two day Taupo Xcelerate meet opened the winter swim season with a record 303 swimmers taking part. 32 Greerton swimmers competed against the best in the Waikato/BOP along with a number of Auckland and Wellington teams.
