  • The Australian Sports Anti Doping Authority (ASADA) has been notified of this event, and may conduct random testing during the 2019 New South Wales State Open Championships. All event participants are potentially subject to ASADA anti-doping testing at this event.

    For further details regarding ASADA anti-doping procedures and information, please follow the links to the ASADA website: asada.gov.au

    By entering this event, you agree to accept that you have been warned of the potential to be selected for anti-doping testing and will comply with any anti-doping testing if required.

    WARNING: Swimmers are also warned that inadvertent doping offences are generally due to the use of particular supplements. Athletes are responsible for any sports drink, food, supplement, medication etc. ingested so should check the contents or ingredients of any product to ensure that they do not contain any banned or prohibited substances.

  • Entry Fine Print
    • Long Course and Short Course times achieved since 1 January, 2018 can be used to enter this meet
    • Competitors must enter with their long course entry times where possible, however if you enter using a Short Course entry time you will be entered on the Qualifying Time for that event
    • An approved qualifying time must have been achieved, uploaded and approved by the specified closing time and date of the meet
    • It is the responsibility of the person processing the online entries to ensure that all times listed in the system are legal and valid to the swimmer. Errors can happen in the OME system from time to time so we trust that stakeholders will not take advantage of this and use incorrect times to process entry into events they do not actually qualify for. In the event that you process an entry on an illegal time, you will be withdrawn from that event and no refund will be given
    • Manual Entries will not be accepted
    • Payment for online Individual and online Relay entries must be completed online via credit card at the time of processing in order to be accepted

  • MC Swimmers
  • MC Swimmers are required to email their Classification to meet.entries@nsw.swimming.org.au

    Multi Class events are championship events and qualifying times apply. Whilst the OME system will allow MC swimmers to enter all MC events – please ensure you read the MC Qualifying Times and only enter events for which you qualify. Entry times will be checked and any swimmers who do not have the correct entry time for their entries, will be withdrawn and no refund will be given.

    Should you wish to make any changes to your relay team, an updated relay form must be submitted to the Chief Recorder on race day prior to the start of the session in which the event will be contested. If you are adding new swimmers, you must include their DOB. Relay forms are not required if you are not making any changes.
