Board of Directors (BoD): Meet Calendar Policy

You can retrieve the final version of the competition calendar policy, which was approved by the SNB BoD on 20th January 2020, via the following link:

Technical Committee: Calendar Sub-committee

In order to start preparing the 2020/2021 season, the calendar sub-committee is asking for your feedback as to the calendar of the 2019/2020 sport season.

Via the link given below, you will find a table that was prepared in March 2019 to explain the choice of events and dates. Obviously, not everything worked as planned and that is why we ask you to insert your suggestions and/or thoughts in the 3rd column by 16th February 2020, and preferably as soon as possible.

Based on your feedback, we should be able to propose a calendar that will hopefully meet the expectations of the swimming community in NB and ensure better activities for all our swimmers.

Quality Sport Initiative (QSI): Input desired

As you should already be aware of, SNB has received an invitation from the Government of NB to participate in a strategic planning process for our athlete development. In this regard, we kindly ask you to provide us with an overview regarding your memberships by filling in the table in the link below and sending it back to us before 13th February 2020. THANK YOU!

Meet Managers – Meet Packages

In order to ensure a better planning of our meets and to attract more participants from NB and from other provinces, we kindly ask meet managers to prepare and submit their meet packages for all the meets scheduled for this season earlier so that these are sanctioned well in advance.

Calendar of the Week

Good luck to all our swimmers, who will participate in the NB Open cup, which is organized by Codiac Vikings Aquatic Club (CVAC) in Moncton from 31st January to 2nd February 2020. Thanks to all the volunteers and everyone who contributed to the planning of this meet.
