NJK Short Course is much calmer than last year (UPDATED 17-1-2012)
For NJK short course of last year, was also on this site, a lot of debate about the limits and the number of participants.
The policy of flexible limits set by the KNZB and thereby creating an incentive for young swimmers had resulted in a number of participants that was almost impossible to handle. Luckily it was chaos afterwards and was especially praised talked about 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 really 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 certainly necessary. NJK in Dordrecht was eventually crowded but well manageable.
In order not to repeat again, all the troubles from 2011 in 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 draw up a provisional balance sheet and is already saying that the National Junior Short Course 2012 will be last year. Calmer
On zwemrank.nl are now the limits back on the page limit , which we also take into account the minimum set number of participants per program 8. Were at the 2011 National Junior Short Course on virtually all distances are 20 + swimmers who had reached the limit, the National Junior Short Course 2012 there are no fewer than 20 distances less than 8 swimmers who managed to reach the sharp limits. At both the junior girls and two boys in the junior three are 7 of the 12 numbers needed to get. Full series rankings
Possibly it may be, or a minimum of 16 participants is no better option is to get the partitions on the junior age groups are more balanced towards the NJK looked in the summer
UPDATE 16-1-2012: We tried to process all the results of the winter circuit championships and our knowledge, the rankings now complete.
Obviously there at the last moment a lot of limits taken, allowing 13 more distance there now remain with the rankings needed to get. A series full
In terms of distribution of those distances over the ages has not changed much, both girls 1999 (4 distances) and the boys from 1997 (5 distances) remain the hardest ages 'hit'. This becomes even clearer if one looks at the total number of limits achieved by age:
Boys 1996: 207 limits
Boys 1997: 115 limits
Boys 1998: 528 limits
Boys 1999: 209 * limits
Girls 1998: 340 limits
Girls, 1999: 168 limits
Girls 2000: 256 * limits
* In the youngest age groups is not 50vrij, 200vlinder and 400wissel swim, which would be a 60 50vrij 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 of course no surprise that the top is 200m Fly (total boys and girls, all ages (5) together, only 28 limits. Among the distances swim at all ages, the 200m breaststroke with 89 limits the least busy, closely followed by the 100m with 91 limits achieved Total limits achieved across all ages and distances:. 1822 In comparison. NJK for Terneuzen were 3152 limits are reached.
UPDATE 17-1-2012: The KNZB site is an extra line 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.
When registering for the NJK so organizations should ONLY swimmers who have met the limit time to register. Subscribe to swimmers over the limit as time will always result in an administrative fee / penalty.
