REGULATION FOR CANADIAN FREEDIVING TEAM COMPETITIONS

Version 1a

1 GENERAL RULES

1.1

The "_______________" competition is recognized and organized by CAFA in relation with _____________ .

1.2

It is a team competition combining any recognized discipline.

1.3

Each team consists of 2 or 3 freedivers.

1.4

All competitors must be 18 years or older.

1.5

All competitors must be current CAFA competitive members.

1.6

All competitors must be in possession of a CAFA Medical Form, signed by a doctor, in order to participate in the competition.

1.7

Points 1.4, 1.5 and 1.6 are inspected upon registration.

1.8

Only one men's and one women's team is allowed per club. A mixed team is possible for clubs unable to register an entire team of men or women. The mixed team will be classed in the mens team category.

1.9

The point scale is identical for both mens and womens teams.

1.10

For small competitions, more than one team per club may be allowed.

1.11

Only CAFA is responsible for team registrations. If there are several team nominations for the same club, CAFA will give preferential treatment to a team registered by the head of the CAFA recognized club.

1.12

Each team names a captain who will represent them during event committees.

1.13

Each performance is converted into points according to the following scale:

Static apnea:3 seconds of immersion = 0.5 point,
Depth, salt water:1 metre in depth = 1 point,
Depth, fresh water:1 metre in depth = 1.16 points
Dynamic apnea:2 meters in distance = 1 point

In static, the timed performance is always rounded down to the nearest 1/2 point.

In constant ballast, the performance is rounded down to the nearest tenth, except in the case of a tie.

Examples:

  • 5'04" in static apnea = 50.5 points
  • 55.5 m in constant ballast, salt water = 55 points
  • 48 m in constant ballast, fresh water = 55.6 points
1.14

The winning team is that which obtains the most points by adding the points scored by the team's 3 athletes in each discipline.

1.15

In the case of a tie, the winning team is the team having the smallest difference between the announced and achieved performances in static apnea.

1.16

It is mandatory to report all undergoing medical treatments by the freedivers to the judge member event doctor before the competition.

1.17

The anti-doping code enacted by the IOC concerning the consumption of substances and the prohibited practice is applicable, as well as the anticipated sanctions and penalties by this organization.
Random tests may be conducted. In the case of refusal, the athlete is considered to be positive.

1.18

Any mood manifestation by an athlete causing disturbance to other competitors and impeding their performance may warrant penalty from the judge by any means and authorization of a restart to the impeded competitor.

1.19

All athletes participating in this competition accept implicitly to submit to the present regulation.

1.20

The judge may warn or disqualify all athletes exemplifying the following behaviours:

  • Non compliance to regulations
  • Non compliance with the judge, organizers, team captains, other athletes, the public or the media
  • Non compliance or disruption of the smooth running of the organization or the safety of the competition

Three warnings result in automatic disqualification of the athlete.

1.21

All blackouts or loss of motor control detected by the judge results in disqualification of the freediver for the event or further penalty by decision of the judge.

1.22

The competitor must not be helped or touched at the end of his performance unless he is in difficulty. If this is the case, he is disqualified.

1.23

All disqualified competitors do not score points for his team for the concerned event. All teams having a disqualified competitor maintain the right to appear in the final ranking.

1.24

The competitor must remove his/her mask/goggles within 15 seconds of surfacing to show good motor control.

2 ORGANIZER

2.1

The organizer chosen by CAFA must send the following information to CAFA and to all persons in charge of the respecting clubs no later 1 month prior to the competition:

  • The present regulation
  • The competition program (start of competitions, event committees, remission of costs, etc.)
  • An information file (premises, date, possible lodging, contingent liabilities, etc.)
  • A record describing the facilities implemented to ensure the safety of the competitors, the judge and the spectators, and an alert and evacuation record
  • All documents describing the planning and administration of the event if necessary
  • A diagram of the different sites
2.2

CAFA must prepare a judge, at least 1 month before the competition, after examination of the proposed candidacy by the clubs. The organizer must indicate the selected judges to the captains on opening day.

2.3

The event committee must convene on the eve of an event. Upon conclusion, the organizer must provide the event start lists to the team captains.

2.4

The organizer must draw up a commitment sheet disclosing anticipated competition performances to be filled in by the competitors.

2.5

A technical commission appointed by CAFA will be in charge of examining the following with the organizer no less than 1 months before the competition:

  • Implementation of the organization (lodging, scheduling, logistics)
  • Arrangement of the organization in regard to event safety (assembly with the chief diving officers)
  • Facilities and administrative arrangements
2.6

This commission will be composed of at least one member of the judge and should work in close consultation with the organizer to mitigate any problems and find necessary solutions for an efficient organization.

2.7

The organizer must set up drug tests with the appropriate agency of their country. The terms upon which the athletes are chosen are left up to the discretion of the judge.

2.8

The organizer must anticipate one or more "openers" for each event: The judge will choose the openers among the safety freedivers or competent reputable freedivers. Without exceeding their abilities, they must officially open the performance zone, which will allow the organization to acclimate.
The openers observe the same conditions as the competitors, but they may not be competitors.

2.9

The organizer must provide an identification number for each athlete. The participants must visibly wear this number during the official events. A list of these numbers is provided to the media as well as to the team captains.

2.10

For safety rules refer to the CAFA Safety Protocols for Competitions/Records

2.11

Calibration of the depth measuring devices:
The depth measuring devices are calibrated in the following manner:

  • Each device is marked clearly and distinctly
  • The devices are tested at three depths in relation to the line measure (-60m, -40m, -20m). The given measures are then indexed for each instrument
  • The judge then calculates the error coefficient of each device in the following manner:

    Indexed measures: -60.5m -40.8m -20.8
    - error coefficient at 60 m = 60 / 60.5 = 0.985
    - error coefficient at 40 m = 40 / 40.4 = 0.990
    - error coefficient at 20 m = 20 / 20.2 = 0.990
    -> final coefficient = 0.99
  • Application of the error coefficient to the depth posted by the devices in order to obtain the actual depth is then sufficient for training and competition.

3 STATIC APNEA

3.1

The event takes place in a pool or in a natural environment.

3.2

On the eve of the performance, no later than 4 hours before the event committee, each captain must relay the announced performances of the athletes to the judge.

3.3

The start times for the official attempts are determined the night before the event committee. The order in which the freedivers are positioned is done by series. Each series succeeds from top to bottom in order of the announced performances.

3.4

Every 10 minutes and simultaneously thereafter, the competitors actualize their performances. Each freediver has the choice to start between the "official start" and 10 seconds after. The following countdown is conducted by the speaker:
2'00, 1'30, 1'00, 30", 10", 5", 4", 3", 2", 1", official start, 1", 2", 3", 4", 5", 6", 7", 8", 9", 10"
If the freediver starts after the 10 second authorized margin; a penalty of one point per unit of 6 seconds is applied.
If the freediver starts before the "official start", a penalty of 1 point per unit of 6 seconds is applied.

3.5

If the performance achieved (PA) is higher than then announced performance (AP), no penalty is applied. If the PA is lower than the AP, a penalty of 1 point is applied per unit of 6 seconds.

Example: AP = 5'35" PA = 5'04
Difference between PA and AP = 31"
Penalty = 6 points
Total points scored = 50.5 - 6 = 44.5 points

3.6

The teams must appear before the judge on the premises of the competition at least one hour before the start of the event.

3.7

Three zones are marked off: a warm-up zone, a transition zone and a performance zone. The athlete may not access the warm-up zone until 45 minutes before the start of his performance. Athletes may not access the transition zone until such times as the preceding athlete has left the area.

3.8

The warm-up period starts 45 minutes before the start of the first official attempts and ends at the end of the event.

3.9

A partner is authorized to monitor and supervise the athlete's warm-up and performance. He is permitted to assist in the 3 official zones.
However, during actualization of the performance, the partner is not authorized to touch the athlete. He is only permitted to quietly coach him orally.

3.10

The attempts may take place at the bottom or at the surface. The freediver is free to choose his position.

3.11

Resting points are provided at the surface and at the bottom to facilitate the preparation of the freediver.

3.12

The freediver is free to choose his equipment.

3.13

Competitors have the right to only one official attempt. Once the respiratory tracts are immerged, the attempt is considered as having been started, except in the case where the freediver prepares him self by blowing in the water. In this case, the freediver must hold up his hand to warn the timekeeper(s) that he is anticipating the start of his attempt.

3.14

A safety freediver is present in the water during the performance. This person is responsible for verifying the state of consciousness of the competitor as follows: He touches the freediver unequivocally; the freediver responds by using a gesture agreed upon in advance with the official. This procedure will intervene:

  • Every 30 seconds starting 1 minute before the announced performance
  • Every 15 seconds thereafter

If the freediver does not respond by using the chosen sign, the official will immediately request the sign again from the competitor. If an incorrect response persists, or there is none, the official will remove the competitor from the water.

3.15

The freediver is asked to remove his mask or goggles within 15 seconds following termination of his apnea then look toward and signal to the judge that he is fine.

3.16

In order to calculate the performance of the freediver, an average of the two registered times is taken by the two timekeepers. All measurements are rounded down to the nearest second.

Example: Registered times: 5'08"64 and 5'07"48
Average will be: (5'08" + 5'07") / 2 = 5'07"50
Registered performance will be: 5'07" = 51 points

3.17

The organizer must film the termination of the performance of each freediver when his head emerges from the water. The video is systematically used for claims concerning a blackout or loss of motor control.

3.18

Cameras and photographers are not admitted in the water other than in the warm-up and transition zones.

3.19

Applause is allowed at the end of each athlete's performance even if other competitors in the same series have not finished their performance.

3.20

An ongoing commentary from the official speaker will continue throughout the static apnea event. He may announce the times attained by athletes at the end of their performance.

3.21

For safety rules refer to the CAFA Safety Protocols for Competitions/Records

4.7

Any propulsion assistance other than swimming movements are forbidden (except in the case of thrusting against the side of the wall during turns).

4.8

The teams must appear before the judge on the premises of the competition at least one hour before the start of the event.

4.9

Three zones are marked off: a warm-up zone, a transition zone and a performance zone. The athlete may not access the warm-up zone until 45 minutes before the start of his performance. Athletes may not access the transition zone until such times as the preceding athlete has left the area.

4.10

The warm-up period starts 45 minutes before the start of the first official attempts and ends at the end of the event.

4.11

The event takes place in a pool or in a natural environment

4.12

On the eve of the performance, no later than 4 hours before the event committee, each captain must relay the announced performances of the athletes to the judge.

If variation has occurred, the attempt is cancelled.
  • The freediver is free to choose any other equipment.
5.13

The freediver wears an official depth-measuring device on his wrist, which is provided by CAFA and has been tested and calibrated by the judge.

5.14

The use of a safety lanyard is recommended in cases of poor visibility (less than 5 meters) and/or on the decision of the judge and the organizers.

5.15

The freediver must bring a tag up to the surface and deliver it to a member of the judge. This tag is situated on the line or final base plate at the announced depth of the athlete.

5.16

The freediver must descend and ascend by fining. He is not permitted to pull or hold the line on the descent and the ascent. The only allowance is holding the rope with one or two hands to stop the descent and to initiate the ascent without shifting the resting point. In all other cases, the freediver will be disqualified.

5.17

The freediver is permitted to guide him self along the line without pulling or holding it.

5.18

Depth measurement:

  • The depth attempted by the freediver is marked with a base plate or official depth tag.
  • The freediver must ascend with the tag that was submerged on the base plate/line at the announced depth. In this case, the number of points is equal to the attempted depth.
  • If the freediver does not bring up the tag, the official depth device serves to measure the performance and a penalty of 1 point is allocated for the absence of the tag even if the measuring device indicates the same depth as the one attempted.
  • Performances are rounded down to the nearest meter.
  • If the measuring device indicates a higher depth than that which is announced, it's the announced depth that is taken into consideration.
  • If the measuring device indicates a shallower depth, which is more than 2 meters than that which is announced, a penalty of one point per meter of deviation between AP-2 and PA is applied. A penalty of 1 point is also added due to the absence of the tag.
  • If the measuring devise or safety diver at depth shows that the competitor descended more than 2 meters deeper then their announced performance they will be disqualified. This competitor will receive no points in this category.
  • The tested devices are assigned an error coefficient, which is communicated to the captains by the judge.

Example: AP = 50 m PA (read on the device) = 47.5m device error coefficient = 0.98

Actual performance = 47.5 x 0.98 = 46.55 -> 46m

Difference between AP-2 and PA = 48-46 = 2 m -> 2 penalty points

Absence of the tag = 1 penalty point

Final performance = 46 - 3 = 43 pts

5.19

The freediver is asked to remove his/her mask within 15 seconds upon termination of his apnea and signal to the judge that he is fine.

5.20

The organizer must film the exit of the freedivers upon arrival at the surface with no less then 1 camera. The video is systematically used for claims concerning a blackout or loss of motor control.
