Disqualification Codes

Obviously getting disqualified is upsetting for swimmers, parents, and coaches, but it's important that we learn from what went wrong & correct it before the next gala.  This page lists the codes used in the Sportsystem Meet Organisation system, with their explanations to help you understand why you were disqualified.  If you are still unsure, please ask one of the officials, or speak to your coach.
