Golden Flipper Challenge

The Golden Flipper Challege is an annual challenge between Swim BC and other provinces. The challenge has been designed to develop spirit, story, and a rallying cry to inspire and motivate the swimmers, coaches, and their clubs. The regions will work collaboratively to share and compete in this friendly rivalry. The 2022-23 challenge is regionally based, with each region working collaboratively to strategize on how to best develop their event. This may include micro-challenges, special sets, or contests. Thank you to Team Aquatic Supplies and Speedo for their support of this initiative.

These season’s contests:

  • Lower Mainland (Vancouver Coastal, Fraser River, Fraser Valley) vs Swim Alberta – 100 Breast

  • Thompson – Okanagan Region vs Swim Nova Scotia – 200 Fly
  • Kootenay Region vs Swim PEI – 400 Free
