Admin Officials are those who are the team/league designated Timing Official (TO) & Computer Scoring Official (CSO); aka: responsible for the hardware & process of collecting swim times through timing systems, creating the meet database, recording times, DQ's and scoring the meet using Hy-Tek Meet Manager.
This is a recording of the April 25, 2019 webinar by Andrew Connell to the Admin Officials & meet operators for teams in SJSSL. It covers tasks operators will do related to the days leading up to, day of and after a swim meet & builds off the SJSSL - Admin Official 2018 Training (recorded) that covered specific tasks with Meet Manager v5.
Collection of videos created by Durbin Crossing Dolphins that demonstrate one option for setting up two computers to execute a meet. One computer is used as the timing computer and uses SST. The other is used as the meet database computer & uses Meet Manager.
