Asian All-Stars Qualifier 2014-15

Dear All Coaches, Aquatic Directors & Athletic Directors,

This will be our second year running this event. Last year was a tremendous success with a number of fantastic swims and over 25 records broken at the meet. The inaugural event saw over 200 athletes qualify representing 11 swim programs across Asia. This year we have already had interest from over 15 swim programs with a similar number of qualified swimmers already having confirmed their place. Please look at meet mobile under AAQ 2013-14 for a view of last years results for your interest.

Why Asian All Stars? The vision for this meet is to create an age group national equivalent qualifier meet in the International circuit. This will help prepare athletes for heats and finals experience. This year we will also be announcing the All Star Team (top 2 finishes in each event).  This may lead onto an invitation for this team to compete in another event of sorts at a later stage.

Swim Team Rules:

This meet has been designed to allow both school or club involvement. The reason being is that some schools may not have a swim team, or there may not be any clubs for swimmers to be apart of in certain areas. This meet allows all swimmers the opportunity to compete.

Please be aware of the following rules / guideline points that are standard practice Internationally:

  • Swimmers should only represent one team, whether that is a club, school or club / school hybrid program.
  • Only coaches and or representatives of the swimmers team should be offering coaching support in the form of post and pre-race chats, supervising warm-ups and or warm-downs during the meet. This is crucial in terms of our duty of care as professional coaches and teachers.
  • Multiple club affiliations send the wrong message to our young athletes and certainly does not prepare them well for when they move back to their home nations and swim in club or school environments. Please e-mail me if you have any concerns or foresee any potential conflicts and we will gladly support you wherever I can.

All other information will be sent on an as needed basis.

We look forward to hosting you at the AAQ 2014-15.

Best Regards
