  • Certificates:  All-State Certificates were given to the coaches.  If you were unable to attend the meeting, you may pick up your certificates at the September meeting.
  • Secretary-Treasurer's Report:  Our current balance is $386.52.  Your dues have purchased plaques for; Swimmers-of-the-Year, Coaches-of-the-Year, Top Scoring Teams in in all classifications,  GHSSCA Web site, Stamps, Coach-of-the-Year cash awards, All-State certificates, and New Coaches Handbook.
  • Dues:  Please pay your $25.00 dues.  Mail the check to Kristina Nesbitt, 917 Fairfield Drive, Marietta, GA 30068.  Our tax ID number is 58-2225318.
  • Elections:  Pete Higgins (Westminster) was reelected Training Director and Richard Tavernaro (North Cobb) was elected as Vice-President.  The elections for President and Secretary-Treasurer will take place at the 1999 spring meeting.
  • Fall meeting:  We will meet at Wheeler High School, Saturday, September 12, 1998.   Jeff Rosen will be the host. 
  • Coaching positions:  Marist is looking for Varsity Swim Coaches for the 1998-1999 season. Contact Terry Blish at Marist.  Campbell High School in Smyrna is seeking a Varsity Coach. Contact Christy Hood at (770)319-3726 for further details.  Several summer league coaching positions are open.  Contact Franke Marsden at (404)352-3046 if you are interested.
  • New Coaches Notebook:  Monica Erwin (Pope) did a fabulous job putting the book together.  We will be updating the notebook.  We will make more copies this year.  Please contact Kristina Nesbitt (Holy Innocents') if you know of a new coach or team so enough copies can be made for the next meeting.
  • State meet results:  The results mailed out were incorrect.  We went over the corrections in the girls 100 Back and the Boys 100 Free.
  • Qualifying Times and Standards for State Meet:  Several proposals were discussed about how to improve the current procedure for qualifying for the State Meet. Al Otte (Glynn Academy) has made a formal proposal to the GHSA that regional qualifying meets be held with swimmers and divers advancing by some combination of place and performance.  This proposal along with several others was not supported.
  • Rules:  Several coaches voiced their concerns about the inconsistency of the enforcement of the rules especially at the State Meet.  Pete Higgins (Westminster) proposed that we change our forward start rule to be consistent with FINA, USS, and the NCAA.  This proposal was supported.  A committee will be formed to change the procedure for nominating the Coach-of-the-Year.  A report will be given at the September meeting on this subject.
  • Communication:  Many coaches want our meeting published by the GHSA and flyers sent to athletic directors as well as swim coaches.
  • Announcements:  Doug Michalke (McEachern) is organizing swim clinics for summer league teams.  Auburn University coach David Marsh will be instructing the swimmers along with Auburn swimmers.  Call Doug at (770)943-7392.   The cost is $25.00 per swimmer which includes a T-shirt, video of the swimmer swimming, and prizes.  Franke Marsden is organizing the Kids for Kids Meet which will be held at the Georgia Tech Aquatic Center on June 27, 1998.  This meet raises money for Scotish Rite.  If your would like to have your summer league team participate or get a team together, contact Franke at (404)352-3046.
