SNB Framework of the return to competition

Please see the link below for version 1 of the Swimming NB Return to Competition Framework which is based on the best practices and recommendations for officials released by Swimming Canada. We invite you to share this document with your club’s organising committee and Officials Coordinator and contact the NB Officials Committee or the SNB office if you have any questions. We also inform you that to reduce the number of participants per meet and allow all swimmers registered for this season to compete, all clubs can host an unlimited number of in-house meets.

Also, we invite all the clubs that are going to organize meetings to send us their post-meet reports so that we can share it with all clubs and update our plan.

We thank all coaches who are registered as of October 16, 2020 for their efforts in fulfilling the registration requirements of Swimming NB, Swimming Canada and the CSCA. We invite those who are not yet compliant to consult the link below or contact us for more information.

Best regards,
