Timekeeper
Timing measures the swimmers performance, by
accurately determining the time it takes each
swimmer to cover the distance of the
event. Final placement of the swimmer in each
event isdetermined by their times and their
finishing order. Therefore, precision and
accuracyare important for Timekeepers.
3
Reporting for Gala Duty
Have 2 pens, arrive 30 minutes before start of
gala,sign in to referee, then report to Chief
Timekeeper!
4
Allocation of Dutiesand Equipment
  • These will be allocated by the Chief Timekeeper
  • The role of the Chief Timekeeper is vital in
    events where Automatic Officiating Equipment is
    not used

5
Procedures for Reporting a Time
  • Sit at end of lane
  • Check name of swimmer on start sheet (or time
    card)
  • Stand when referee blows the long whistle blast
  • Start watch on starting signal
  • Sit down once you have confirmed your watch is
    running and whilst race is taking place
  • Stay standing if there is a problem (watch
    doesnt start)
  • When swimmer is 15m from the finish of the race
    stand ready to take time
  • Take time then sit down and record your time on
    programme, using 6 digits
  • Determine the official time if using manual
    times
  • Clear watch when referee signals start of next
    race
  • When AOE is used do not take average of times

6
Determining an Official Time
  • 3 Timekeepers
  • Three watches the same official time
  • Two watches the same official time
  • All watches different middle time
  • 2 Timekeepers
  • Two watches the same official time
  • Both watches different average time
  • (if between times then round up to nearest
    1/100th of a second)
  • 1 Timekeeper
  • When there is only one Timekeeper, that one will
    be the official time

7
Other duties (1)
  • Splits
  • Record times at intermediate distances of a race
    using the split (lap) button on your watch,
    pressing it when either the swimmer touches the
    wall.
  • Split times may be required, if instructed by the
    Chief Timekeeper, at intermediate distances in
    races longer than 100 metres.
  • Record the time, if requested, on the swimmers
    card before pressing the splits button again
  • Back-up button
  • This is a cable with a button on the end which is
    pressed by the timekeeper, at the same time as
    the stopwatch, at the end of a race
  • It is used as a back-up to the AOE system of
    electronic timing in case of technical failure or
    if the swimmers hands fail to make sufficient
    contact with the pads.

8
Other Duties (2)
  • Lap cards, bells, whistles
  • In longer races lap cards can be displayed to
    help swimmers keep count of the number of laps
    remaining. If these are displayed at the starting
    end of the pool, turning these may be the
    timekeepers responsibility
  • Bells or whistles may be issued to timekeepers to
    use at the starting end of the pool. These will
    need to be sounded in 1500m and 800m races to
    inform the swimmers that they have two lengths
    and five metres left to swim
  • The five metre point will be indicated either by
    flags or red lane dividers
  • The bell or whistle should be sounded when the
    swimmer reaches the five metre point and
    continued throughout the turn until they have
    passed the five metre point again

9
Chief Timekeeper
  • Before the race
  • Allocates Timekeepers to lanes (1-3 per lane)
  • Issues stopwatches if necessary Timekeepers
    must familiarise themselves with any new watch
  • During the race
  • The Chief Timekeeper must be informed if your
    watch failed at the start or finish of the race
  • After the race (the 5 Cs)
  • Collects timecards (if used) from each lane
  • Checks manually recorded times on cards and puts
    them in order, fastest to slowest
  • Consults with finish judge to ensure time results
    agree with his decision
  • Instructs the Timekeepers to clear their watches
  • Collects start sheets, if used, and passes them
    to the recorders

10
Tips for Timekeepers
Check the lane/heat/event
Check the swimmers name on the timecard or
start sheet
Avoid the top of the timing pad if the AOE is in
operation
Only give information tothe Chief Timekeeperor
the referee
Refer any questions to the Chief Timekeeper
Dont cheer or coach swimmers during a race
Check relay team lines and swimmers are in the
given order
Do not divulge the time to the swimmer
Know the distance of the event
Record the watch accurately
11
Is Timekeeping differentat a Disability Event?
Under International Paralympic Committee Rules
(SM 2.9.2) Each Timekeeper shall start his
watch at the starting signal, and shall stop it
when the swimmer in their lane has completed the
race.  Timekeepers maybe instructed by the Chief
Timekeeper to record times at intermediate
distances in races longer than 100 metres.
