NATIONAL SW TEAM QUALIFICATION REQUIREMENTS

General

The selection process for National Swim Teams is divided into two phases; qualification and team selection. In the qualification process, the names of swimmers who have met the qualification requirement will be gathered. The final team will be made by a selection committee whose decision will be submitted to Amateur Swimming Association of Jamaica (ASAJ) council for ratification.  The names of swimmers selected for representation at the CAC, Commonwealth, Pan American and Olympic Games will be submitted to the Jamaica Olympic Association (JOA), who has final authority.

As the ASAJ may not have access to all meet results, it is important that Coaches and Managers of swimmers, who have qualified, ensure that the relevant information providing proof of qualification is submitted prior to the qualification deadline. The ASAJ will not be held accountable for information not in its possession.

The following guidelines will apply;

1.        All times must be verified.

2.        When using the US Time standard as a qualifying criteria, the appropriate course chart for the year in question will be used e.g. if the criteria is “AA” times, then either the 50 M long course or 25 Y short course may be used.

3.        When considering final team selection, times will be convert to appropriate course (pool length) equivalents using the Hy-Tek conversion formula.

4.        Unless otherwise stated in the Meet Summons, only the top two in each event will be selected.
