SNB Board of directors: Splash Fees

We are pleased to inform you that following the Swim NB Board of Directors meeting held on April 28, 2021, that Swim NB will refund clubs the sanction fees for all meets (in-house, Dual and Tri meets) that will be held during the period October 23, 2020, to June 30, 2021.

Please note that for accounting purposes, we invite you to continue to pay all invoices related to the splash fees, as the reimbursement will be made in July 2021.

Changes to the Olympic and Paralympic Trials

The Olympic Trials will now be held at TPASC June 19-23, replacing the previously scheduled Invitational Qualifier. Swimming Canada is also pursuing options for holding the Trials elsewhere in North America should run the event in Toronto is not viable.

A decision of whether to move the event, if possible, will be made by the end of May or sooner.

The Paralympic Trials portion is cancelled and SNC will create alternative competitive opportunities as the new June dates conflict with a World Para-swimming event. Selection committees will clarify selection procedures in the coming days.

Swim NB officials’ shirts

We have received requests from some officials who would like to purchase the official shirt.

We are happy to announce that our supplier has set up an online store so that your official coordinators at the club level can order your officials shirts!

Please note that orders will not be processed until shop closes (May 23rd). All orders will be completed and shipped to the SWIM NB Head Office in approximately 5 weeks. Swim NB will arrange distribution of the orders once they arrive.
