AUDITOR GUIDELINES

AUDITORS' RULES AND GUIDELINES

There is to be NO SMOKING, CELL PHONE USE, OR VISITING WITH SPECTATORS while on duty.

Auditors work closely with the Head Timer and Judges.

Exact location varies from pool to pool as space allows.

2 People per shift, 1 from each team.

Runners bring the timing sheets and DQ slips to the Head Auditor.

Watch carefully for exhibition only, swimmers. Exhibition swimmers have an X after their name on the timing sheet. This should be noted on the sheet in the place of Official Time. These swimmers are swimming for time only and do not receive points or ribbons.

HEAD AUDITOR Home Team & ASSITANT AUDITOR Visiting Team

1. Receive from the Head Judge before the start of the meet the initials of Starter, Stroke &Touch/Turn Judges, Head Timer, and Referee to verify DQs.

2. The Head Auditor alternates with the Assistant auditor auditing events. Head Auditor works on even number events, the Asst. Auditor takes odd number events, then switch so all timing sheets are audited by each team.


3. Make sure that you have received timing sheets from each lane and the starters completed heating assignment sheet.


4. Look for a .30 difference in times. If greater than .30 and no explanation is given, go to the Assistant Head Timer and lane timers with the timing sheets for the entire event. The Head Timer or Assistant Head Timer makes the decision regarding the correct time. If timers are well aware of why their times are off they need only circle the good time, slash the bad and give a 2-3 word reason why it is off, i.e. missed touch, bad start, late start, watch failed. If they don't know, then they need to call in back up timers and go to the assistant head timer for resolution. They need to work quickly to get the sheet back for the back up timers to record the next race results. The meet should not be stopped to solve problems at the poolside. Call in the back up timers.

5 Times shall be recorded by the timers to the I00th of a second.


6 . Review DQ slips to verify that the slips are complete and accurate. There must be two judges' initials for a stroke/touch/turn DQ. There must be the Starters’ initials for a false start DQ.

7. If a swimmer has been DQ'd, under "Official Time" write DQ and staple a completed DQ form to the back of the correct timing sheet. Check for proper initials.

8. After reviewing and approving the timing sheets, auditors’ initial the lane\timing sheet in the upper right hand comer.

9. Paper clip timing sheets to keep in lane order. Head auditor received the starter's copy of the heating assignment. (delivered by runner)


10. The checked timing sheets are delivered to the computer table by the runners.
