Return to Swimming Document – Version2

Public Health guidelines have changed since the publication of version 1 of the Operational Provincial Plan. Considering the easing of  restrictions (not precautions!) across the province, particularly with regard to the new limit gathering of over 50 persons released on Friday 19th June 2020, the return to swimming recommendations have been updated accordingly.

SNB’s working group is finalizing the 2nd version of the Return to Training Operational Plan and it is expected to be released next week.

Information Request

SNB has prepared a brief online survey to estimate the financial impact felt to date and what you expect the impact to be over the next few months.

We thank all clubs which have already responded to our survey on club finances as this information can help to obtain the support needed. If your club has not filled out this survey, please do so no later than 24th July 2020. THANK YOU.

Coaches – Online Course

Following the successful delivery of the online pilot courses for coaches, SNC provides the following online training courses: Community Sport Coach Course, Swim 101 or Swim 201. Coaches can sign up for these courses offered in different provinces provided that there are free spots and time difference is not an issue.

We would like to point out that you can register for the online Community Sport Coach Course to be hosted by Swim Nova Scotia on 13th|14th July 2020.

Kindly note that the deadline for registration [maximum number of registrants: 10] for this course is 10 July 2020, 4:00pm.

Best regards,
Marwen Ghali
