View Full Version : Registration regarding 2006 FINA Worlds in Palo Alto

June 9th, 2005, 10:42 PM
Anyone who is currently unattached and is interested in swimming at the 2006 FINA Worlds in Palo Alto should register for a club in 2006. Unattached swimmers are not eligible to compete in FINA competition.

One option would be to register as an Southwest Ohio Master member. There is no cost to be an SWOM member. Just the USMS dues that you currently pay are sufficient.

Here is the posting from the 2006 FINA Worlds meet director that brought this club affiliation requirement to my attention.

2006 Worlds - No unattached swimmers. For those LMSCs that have unattached swimmers, I would like to point out that FINA rule MGR3:

Individual entries shall only be accepted from persons representing clubs.

This of course means that swimmers, who wish to swim at the XI FINA World Masters Championships, MUST be registered with a club and CANNOT be registered unattached. For coaches, this is a chance to do some recruiting.
