Pink Cap Day
Each year in Canada the last Wednesday of February is designated as Anti-Bullying Day. It is a day when people come together by wearing pink shirts to school or work to show they are against bullying. This year, Swim BC is taking the step to help all our members send a message that our sport does not tolerate bullying, and to emphasize that kindness and compassion are critical to making our sport a safe place to be.
To help send this message of anti-bullying, Swim BC is providing a “Pink Cap” for swimmers throughout the province. We’re encouraging our clubs to make a statement in their local pool and wear their Pink Caps on Wednesday, February 23rd. Here’s what we need from each club, age group and masters – please send us an estimate of the total number of Pink Caps you’ll need for February 23rd. If you want to set up a special workout where all your swimmers come to participate, send us that number. Please be as accurate as possible, it’s fine to ask for a few extra but let’s try to use all that is ordered.
We’re also encouraging you to profile your Pink Cap Day on your club’s social media and consider fundraisers through www.pinkshirtday.ca
To place your order please fill out this form. There is no cost to you as a club. Orders are due by Friday, January 14th, 2022.
