Partnership with Para NB – “Have a Go”-days

In partnership with Para New Brunswick – Sport & Recreation, Swimming New Brunswick intends to launch a new program named ”SWIMMING FOR ALL” in 2020. The project comprises three so-called “Have a Go”-days in the three regions of the province, including practical sessions mixed between able-bodied and para-swimmers. In total, there are currently about 40 persons with a disability across the province, who have signalled their interest in discovering our sport and give it a try. We kindly ask all clubs interested in hosting such a day to fill in the enclosed form and return it to us by January 30th, 2020 at the latest. In this regard, please be informed that SNB will cover all reasonable costs associated with hosting this event (i.e. pool, board, expenses of staff and trainers, etc.). An ideal date for its delivery would be in the period between the end of March and April 2020.
