Club Forms & Resources

Swim BC provides various services and resources to members to help ensure club success. Below are some resources members can use to help manage their clubs.
Insurance Resources

Swim BC provides its membership with the insurance covering Commercial General Liability, Accidental Death & Dismemberment, and Directors & Officers Liability Insurance. The types of operations insured include meets; training sessions and camps; fundraising events; provincial and national competitions; social events; and club, provincial, and national meetings. Our insurance provides coverage for Swim BC, clubs, their officers, directors, coaches, officials, participants, employees, and volunteers, who are participating in the program.

Here are a few reminders regarding how to fill out the request form:

  1. Please type into the fillable PDF, save it, and email it to the Club Services Coordinator.
  2. Please make sure that you are making the certificate out to the entity (not the swim club) who is requesting your proof of insurance.
  3. The start date should be the date you make the request; the expiration date should be the expiry date of the policy.
  4. Please review the contract with the entity requesting the proof of insurance to ensure you include all of the details they request.

Note: Clubs will need to resubmit a request for a copy of the renewed policy effective December 1, of each season. For the dates that the certificate is valid, please use the day you submit the form until the expiry of the insurance policy.

Within 30 days of an accident, mail the original completed form and medical receipts directly to the BFL Claims department. The mailing address is found on the claims form. Please also fax or scan a completed copy of the form to the [Swim BC office][link to Contact Us] within 30 days of the accident.

BC High School External Sports Credit

The External Sport Credentials Program (ESCP) gives students the opportunity to earn graduation credits for approved levels of competition as an athlete, coach, and/or official.

External credits are available for swimmers registered with Swim BC who have met the following criteria:

  • Athlete 10: Provincial Championships- 14 & U Females Qualifying Time or Provincial Championship – 15 & U Males Qualifying Time
  • Athlete 11: Canadian Junior Championships 15 yr-old Females or 16 yr-old Male Qualifying Time
  • Athlete 12: Canadian Swimming Championships 16 yr-old Female or 17 yr-old Male Qualifying Time; or the Canadian Trial Open Qualifying time

Regardless of when the performance was achieved, the times will be compared against the current season’s time standards to make the determination of a swimmer’s eligibility for credit; the current time standards can be found here.

To apply for credit, qualified individuals must make a written request by email, outlining the following:

  1. Credit(s) they would like to apply for
  2. One or more events, including the achieved time and competition it was achieved, in which they have the applicable time standards
  3. Applicant’s mailing address

Swim BC will then mail the applicant a letter that can be presented to their school counsellor. To send your application letter or if you have any further questions, please email Jocelyn Westfall.

Swim BC gratefully acknowledges the financial support of the Province of British Columbia.
