AS SUBMITTED at the Competition Committee Meeting -- May 16, 2006

 

PROPOSALS FOR CHANGES TO THE SHORT COURSE
ZONE TEAM SELECTION

PROPOSED CHANGE #1

The criteria for zone team selection will be the top 2 swims per event/ age group/ sex that are swum at PVS Championships. The 14 & under age group will be selected by swims that comp eted at PVS 14 & under JOs. The senior group will be selected by swims that are completed at PVS Senior Champs.

This process will alleviate the need for an application process. The swimmers must indicate by the close of the championship meet that they intend to swim with the PVS Zone team. All payments for the trip will be due at the conclusion of the meet. This payment is non-refundable.

PROPOSED CHANGE #2 (should #1 not pass)

High School times can be used for seeding into the PVS championship meets only. NO high school times may be used for securing a spot on the PVS Zone team.

PROPOSED CHANGE #3

A term limit should be set for the duration that a head coach can serve on a PVS Zone team staff. Proposed term limit is 2 years.

PROPOSED CHANGE #4 (should #1 not pass)

Ask that it be stated in the zone team process that lead off splits WILL count for securing a spot on the zone team. Currently, this issue is grey and a firm policy needs to be set.

PROPOSED CHANGE #5

Based on the New Zone team criteria set forth at the 2006 Eastern Zone meeting, it is proposed that PVS add 2 additional coaches to the team staff. Currently, PVS takes 2 head/ assistant coaches and 4 assistant coaches. The Eastern Zone rules allows up to 8 coaches on deck.

Proposed that 1 additional coach be selected by the PVS BOD and the other be selected by the PVS Age Group Chair.
