Technical Committee: Assistance

Swimming New Brunswick recognizes the efforts of all coaches in the province who have shown enthusiasm and leadership in keeping swimmers active and motivated during the past few weeks, in which we have been experiencing a new virtual world. If you need recommendations, assistance or if you have ideas to share with your fellow colleagues, the NNB Technical Committee is at your disposal through the following email address:

NCCP Online Delivery

Swim NCCP have delivered a couple of pilot online courses (Community Coach course and Swim 101). The feedback as to both courses was positive and despite not having pool access, Swim NCCP was able to meet all its objectives.

It is probable that there will be a pilot online course Swim 201 later this spring.

We recommend interested end eligible coaches to reach out to Marta Belsh ( as soon as possible as places are limited and the course will be advertised nationally.

Relevant Resources

Swimming Canada has created a Virtual Training Safe Sport resource document which includes important considerations for athlete safety and best practices. The document is available on our website:

In addition, the Atlantic Canadian Sport Centre provides interesting resources, including a workbook on how to manage uncertainty:

Meets Cancellation

Due to concerns re COVID-19, we report that the following competitions have been cancelled:

  • 2020 Atlantic Cup Meet
  • Duel Meet NB vs PEI

We would like to thank the Organizing Committees of these two events (FAST and Swim PEI) for their preparation, we are sure that these events would have been spectacular.
