HOW CAN I JOIN AND HOW MUCH IS IT
• From Saturday 20 January 18.00 hrs eligible participants can join on a first-come-first-served basis by following the directions for registration on the AAS website (www.aas.sg/reg) and settling the registration fees. 
• The final cost for the competition will also be disclosed on the website on Saturday. A preliminary estimate of the cost around SGD 90 (exclusive of SGD 20 annual AAS membership fee).  
• If participants are not AAS members, they can become AAS members by paying the annual membership fees in advance of the competition through details that will be provided timely ahead of the event. 
• The costs do not include:
• Accommodation.
• Transport to and from the location.
• Meals.
• Medical and evacuation insurance or expenses.

CANCELLATION POLICY
• Participants that are unable to join subsequent to their registration can transfer their place to another diver eligible to compete in the event.
• There will be no reimbursement of fees if neither the participating diver, nor his/her substitute can attend subsequent to registration.
• Changes in participants will be recorded during no later than seven (7) days before the Competition Meeting (see below).  

THE COMPETITION MEETING
• There is a Competition Meeting where all competing athletes must be present. It will take place at the Singapore Sports School on Saturday 3 March at a time that will be disclosed on the AAS website, timely ahead of the meeting.  
• What the athletes need to bring:
• Passport
• Proof of medial statement, or otherwise the signed medical statement issued by the AAS, which must not be older than 1 year.

After completing the registration of all athletes we will give a review of the competition rules and also publish the start list for the competition days.

PERFORMANCE ANNOUNCEMENTS
Announced performances will only be accepted until 18.00 on the day preceding the discipline. 
For Static Apnea and Dynamic with Fins (DYN) the cut-off time for announced performances is 18.00 hrs on Friday 2 March.
For Dynamic No Fins (DNF) the cut-off time for announced performances is 18.00 hrs on Saturday 3 March.
Do note, the starting order for static apnea will be the same as dynamic with fins, to allow minimum 3 hours rest.
Dynamic without fins starting order will be based on Dynamic no fins announced performance.
You can make your announcement by email to apnea.association.singapore@gmail.com or by private message on AAS’ facebook page (www.facebook.com/apneasg). 

 THE COMPETITION
There are 3 competition dives in 2 days, dedicated to one of the freedive disciplines: 
• Static Apnea to be held on Saturday 3 March. 
• DYN (Dynamic with Fins) to be held on Saturday 3 March.
• DNF (Dynamic No Fins) to be held on Sunday 4 March.

The best overall results will determine the top three divers (male / female). However you are free to announce dives that are not representing the discipline. That dive will of course appear in the ranking.

THE POOLS
The competition will be held in either a 25 meter or 50 meter pool with a depth of 2 meters (to be confirmed by Saturday 20 January) The facilities are roofed, which means that event cancelation due to bad weather is unlikely. The water temperature is about 28 degrees.

SAFETY
Safety is our top priority. The AAS want to organize an event that is fun and relaxed but at the same time safe and professional. Here are some of the AAS safety mechanisms:

• A dedicated group of safety divers will monitor the safety during the event.
• There will be a medic, qualified in first aid, CPR and oxygen administration present during the event. 
* Every dive will be monitored from the surface.
• Safety equipment will be on standby for every dive.

The participating safety team, Judges and Organizers have the right to refuse the start of any athlete if diving would pose an obvious risk to the diver's health.

AWARD CEREMONY
The award ceremony will be organised shortly after the last round of athletes competing in their respective disciplines. The ceremony will be held at the pool location. 

We hope this information is helpful. We will provide regular updates on the AAS website in respect of the remaining outstanding details (most notably pricing and pool lane length). Please contact us at apnea.association.singapore@gmail.com if you have any further questions!
We wish everyone successful training and hope to see you in March!

The Apnea Association of Singapore.
