NJK kortebaan is much calmer than last year (UPDATE 17-1-2012)
For NJK short course of last year, was also on this site, much debate about the limits and the number of participants.
The policy of flexible limits set by the KNZB, thus creating an additional incentive for young swimmers had resulted in a number of participants which was almost impossible to handle. Fortunately attacked the chaos afterwards and it was full of praise spoken of the solutions that the organization in collaboration with the KNZB had found.
To ensure that the number of participants in Dordrecht in 2011 NJK would not be too big, it was decided a maximum number of participants per program number to handle. These limits, determined by the number of members of the National Junior Short Course, was obviously an unpopular measure, but one that turned out indeed needed. NJK in Dordrecht was eventually crowded but well manageable.
In order not to repeat again, all the troubles from 2011 to 2012 it was decided to tighten. Limits to NJK's for this season In some ages but limited in other ages very sturdy, especially the girls and boys junior juniors 2 3 With only two weeks to go before closing the limit period, we can conclude an interim balance sheet and is already saying it NJK 2012, a short course will be than last year. calmer
On zwemrank.nl are now the limits back on the page limit , in which we also take into account the minimum number of participants per program 8 preset Were there at NJK kortebaan 2011 at nearly all distances even 20+ swimmers who had reached the limit for the NJK kortebaan 2012 there are no fewer than 20 distances less than 8 swimmers who managed to reach the sharp limits. In both the girls junior second as the boys junior 3 are 7 of the 12 numbers needed to get. Full series rankings
May not be possible or a minimum of 16 participants is no better option is to get the distributions over the junior age groups are more balanced towards the NJK looked in the summer
UPDATE 16-1-2012: We have tried to incorporate all the results of the circle winter championships and the best of our knowledge, the rankings now complete.
Of course there at the last moment a lot of limits taken, leaving 13 more distances now remain with the rankings needed to get. A series full
In terms of distribution of these distances over the ages has not changed much, both girls from 1999 (4 distances) as the guys from 1997 (5 distances) remain the hardest ages 'hit'. This becomes even clearer when one looks at the total number of limits achieved by age:
Boys 1996: 207 limits
Boys 1997: 115 limits
Boys 1998: 528 limits
Boys in 1999: 209 * limits
Girls 1998: 340 limits
Girls 1999: 168 limits
Girls 2000: 256 * limits
* At the youngest ages, no 50vrij, 200vlinder 400wissel and swam, with 50vrij would be for a 60 certainly good range limits given the distribution in other ages
Looking at the success why the Dutch Juniors struggle to get the current limits, then it is obviously no surprise that the 200m butterfly at the top (total boys and girls, all ages (5) together, only 28 limits. Van distances be swum with all ages is the 200m Breaststroke 89 limits the least busy, closely followed by the 100m Fly 91 limits achieved Total limits achieved across all ages and distances:. 1822 In comparison to the NJK in Terneuzen were 3152 limits are achieved.
UPDATE 17-1-2012: On the KNZB site is an additional line is added to the register on the basis of the rankings at distances where less than 8 swimmers have reached the limit: With less than 8 participants KNZB will invite the next swimmers.
