                                   AUSTRALIAN INSTITUTE OF SPORT CANBERRA


               PLEASE NOTE THIS CRITERIA HAS BEEN AMENDED SINCE ITS
                             LAST PUBLICATION IN APRIL
CRITERIA:

A team of up to 40 swimmers will be selected into the NSW State Team for this event comprising of up to 10 males
in each of the two age groups (14/15 & 16/17) and 10 females in each of the two age groups (13/14 & 15/16).

The fastest Male athlete from the combined 14/15 Years Age groups and the combined 16/17 Years Age groups
in events at the 2009 NSW State Age SC Championships will become the 1st priority for selection onto the NSW
State Team.

The fastest Female athlete from the combined 13/14 Years Age groups and the combined 15/16 Years Age
groups in events at the 2009 NSW State Age SC Championships will become the 1st priority for selection onto the
NSW State Team.

The second placed Male athlete from the combined 14/15 Years Age groups and the combined 16/17 Years
Age groups in events at the 2009 NSW State Age SC Championships will become the 2nd priority for selection onto

  IMPORTANT CHANGE IN SCHEDULE OF CONSTANTS FOR
                 COMPETITORS:
Schedule of Constants
The Board of Swimming NSW recently reviewed the current schedule of constants tables for
converting Short Course Times to Long Course times and vice versa. With the impending
introduction of the online entries the Board decided to simplify this process to make it easier
for swimmers to use times in the online database.

The following rules now apply for qualifying purposes:-
   (i) When qualifying for Long Course Championships, swimmers can use either a Long
       Course or Short Course qualifying time, however if entering using a Short Course time,
       their entry time will be equal to the qualifying time for that event.

   (ii) When qualifying for Short Course Championships, swimmers can use either a Long
       Course or Short Course qualifying time.
