Athlete Rep (Brooke Wanser): The new athlete rep for 2011, Brooke Wanser, from

Program: Next meeting will be January 26, at 7 P.M.  The following teams need
to be present to plan their meets: Apr  9-10 - GWSC, Apr 16-17 - STOP,
Apr 30-May 2 - MVN.   The committee worked on the JO Max meets; the 10-Un
500 Free will be first on Friday night, followed by the 11-12 500 Free.  The
400 IM will trade places from last year's meet form with the 200 IM.
Discussion was held about eliminating team trophies.  The board will be polled
via email on this matter.

New business:

Discussion of getting results for Team Unify for unattached swimmers.  The
electronic results on the SCS website have already been put into a form that
is required to load into the SWIMS database, and may not fit the individual
team's requirements.  The best thing for each team to do is to see the admin
before leaving the meet and request results for their unattached swimmers.

Discussion of how best to ensure coaches are certified.  Each team is
responsible for ensuring their coaches are certified.   Coaches without
current certifications are an insurance liability and the admin/meet ref
will remove uncertified coaches from deck if certs are not up to date.

Respectfully submitted,
Judi Divan
