馃寧 CMAS Games 2009. Primeras Informaciones

(Especial Sportalsub.net – Viernes 13 de Febrero 2009)
Faltando menos de 5 meses para la realizaci贸n de la 2da Edici贸n de los Juegos de la Confederaci贸n Mundial de Actividades Subacu谩ticas (CMAS Games),聽a efectuarse en T煤nez, del 5 al 14 de Julio聽2009 en聽donde se realizar谩n los Campeonatos Mundiales de聽Apnea, Nataci贸n con Aletas, Hockey Subacu谩tico, Rugby Subacu谩tico y Orientaci贸n Subacu谩tica; es poca la informaci贸n oficial que esta organizaci贸n ha publicado o enviado a las Federaciones Nacionales que participar谩n en este importante evento.

En el sitio oficial de la CMAS 煤nicamente aparece el evento listado en el Calendario: http://www.cmas.org/comspo/agenda/champdetails.asp?id=269, mientras que en la p谩gina oficial de la Federaci贸n de Actividades Subacu谩ticas de T煤nez: http://www.fast.org.tn/聽no se hace menci贸n alguna al evento.

Esta falta de informaci贸n en las p谩ginas oficiales, as铆 como por informaciones extraoficiales聽manejadas en la pasada Asamblea Extraordinaria de la CMAS realizada en Roma el pasado mes de Enero, indicaban que de no ser T煤nez la sede de dichos juegos, estos podr铆an realizare en China, probablemente en el 芦Cubo de Agua禄, escenario donde se efectuaron las competencias de los deportes acu谩ticos de los pasados Juegos Ol铆mpicos Beijing 2008.

Sin embargo, la propuesta de T煤nez, como sede los Juegos CMAS 2009 cobra nuevamente vigencia, ya que el pasado martes 10 de febrero, el Presidente de la Comisi贸n de Rugby Subacu谩tico CMAS (Soren Neubert)聽envi贸 en comunicado v铆a email a las federaciones participantes en esta modalidad, algunas informaciones referentes al desarrollo de esta modalidad, donde especific贸 las fechas de las competencias, as铆 como las dimensiones y especificaciones t茅cnicas de la piscina. En dicho comunicado adem谩s menciona que en pr贸ximos d铆as la CMAS estar铆a publicando en su sitio web toda la informaci贸n referente al evento.

De igual forma, el Presidente de la Comisi贸n de Hockey Subacu谩tico, ha publicado en el sitio web UnderwaterHockeyWorld.com informaci贸n sobre la piscina y algunos costos del evento.

Sportalsub.net聽reproduce en forma textual ambas informaciones (en Ingl茅s) y mantendr谩 informada a toda la comunidad de las actividades subacu谩ticas detalles de los CMAS Games 2009.

Hi Georges
I聽already emailed your guys .for general information the schedule is being published next week .Laurent from France has been there and the pool is great .the 50 meter flat bottom pool is all for hockey only .it is also 25 meters wide and 2.10 deep.
The suggestion is that all athletes stay in the town of Hammamet which is 35 minutes away and is by the sea and full of great hotels with pools etc..
I checked some cost and from the UK you can take a 10 days holidays in first class hotel half board including flights for around 500 Pounds ( expedia site)
the tournament fee I am pushing for a max of 1000 euro per team.
More news to follow .but please understand that all official invitations will go to your federations that are registered with CMAS

Dear All

Distribute this information to all the needed Underwater Rugby contacts in your federation.

About the upcoming CMAS games in Tunesia we have the follow information to you. CMAS HQ is organizing all the logistic and application, so Please visit the CMAS Web page www.cmas.org frequently for more information and/or contact CMAS HQ or Pierre Dernier if any questions about the logistic, application, doping, accommodation, cost ect. The commission only arrange the gamearea, the game schedule, the referring and appointment of referees, and the work getting the uw-rugby games played and find a winner.


Accommodation will be organized to different hotels in Tunis. Quality level of hotels are 3 stars at minimum. CMAS group didn’t see any hotels.


Organizers will provide transportation from accommodation hotels.


Nothing confirmed yet, but it’s estimated that all prices will be higher than in Bari 2007.

Game pool

(Also see Photos attached)

Pool measurements are at surface 20m x 18m and at bottom 18m x 18m. Depth of water is 4,50m. Distance from water surface to exchange area surface is 0,30m.

The playing direction will be the same as in Bari, with the diving tower at the end of the playing direction, this because the bottom wall has an angel on both of the other sides.

Training and warm up pools

For warm-up there is a 50m outside pool. It’s depth is from 1,8m to 2,5m. There is also a 25 m inside pool available. No one else than uw-rugby are in this pool complex.

These facilities was build in 1968 for Mediterranean games. Other sports are in facilities made in 2001 for Mediterranean games, but there is no deep pool in the new pool area.

Still needs to be checked before competition

鈥 Pool’s bottom shape from construct plans (pool was filled high level chlorine when venues were checked by CMAS)
鈥 Which kind of valves is used in diving tanks? (Referees can be informed which kind of regulators they’ll have to bring with them)

Some question and Answers

> – Hotels near by the pool (cheep)

We didn’t get any idea of this, because all they say was 芦Everything is okay and hotels will be at least 3 stars.禄 So I haven’t seen any by myself (Riku Riikonen).

> – Transport in Tunisia airport-hotel (we will probably arrive in Monastir airport/tourist airport)

It’s arranged, but no detailed information yet.

> – Water included during competition days?

No detailed information yet.

> – Which days will UW-rugby be played?
> – Date for closing ceremony and banquet

Opening ceremony 7th of July.
UWR Training 9th of July.
UWR Games from 10th to 14th of July.
Closing ceremony 15 of July.

> – Participation fee (with and without lodging)

No detailed information yet.

> – Pool size and 芦additional features禄

Pool is 20x18x4.5m (Games size will be aproxx 16x18x4.5m)

> – Baskets/Goals (will we bring them from EU)

I suggested that goals are imported from Sweden as them we used in Bari. If the cost is not covered by CMAS, I will organize the payment as President for the UW-Rugby commission. 聽

> – Signal equipment (will we bring them from EU)

UWR Commission will provide two equipments by Soren Neubert.

> – Registration (can we submit names and photo in advance to avoid
> waiting for this on site*)

No detailed information yet.

> – CMAS licences (last day for registration players)

No detailed information yet.

> – Antidoping (which for to use for Exemptions [TUE], in national okay)

No detailed information yet. I hope it’s mainly WADA’s so CMAS are not organizing anything special by themselves.

If any other questions about the logistic please ask CMAS HQ or Pierre Dernier, the UWR commission is not involved with logistic and accommodation, and we do not get any more information than the federation.

Best regards Soren Neubert / UW-Rugby commission president
