Welcome back: letter from the president

We wish all our members a safe return to practise and a wonderful 2021-2022 season.

Please see the link below to read a letter from our President, Stephen Wyatt, expressing our expectations and plans for the new season as well as our current position on vaccination.

We also remind you that all the necessary documents and guides for club, swimmer and coach registration are available on Google Drive.

Recruitment of Provincial Coach Coordinators

SNB is recruiting for four new positions as Provincial Coordinating Coaches and for the Canada Games Head Coach position. Each Coordinating Coach will be responsible for coordinating training, development and competition, activities for a targeted group of swimmers, who meet defined selection criteria. These positions have been established so that coaches currently working with clubs can undertake an additional provincial role without abandoning their club responsibilities. Coordinating Coaches will work in collaboration with coach at each swimmer’s club and will not show favouritism towards swimmers from their own club.

Coordinating Coaches will each receive an honorarium of up to $2,500 to compensate them for their time and their necessary travel.

Coaches may apply for more than one position, but each application should be in a separate letter, reflecting the needs of swimmers in each group.

All applicants should consult the SNB Performance Program (draft document) and available lists of swimmers currently qualified for each group.

Applications should be received by the SNB Executive Director before 24th September 2021.

Please contact Paula Stewart (, 506-260-1758) for further information.
