What is Swim BC doing about safety? Our first step is to address the rules that bind us in a common approach to the conduct of our sport. These “rules” state what behaviour is acceptable, and what is not, and they make provision for consistent and clear decision making. Our goal in engaging Sport Law is to develop and provide member clubs with templates of the policies a modern sport organization requires to protect its members, and to assist its committees, staff, and volunteers in carrying out the work of the organization.
Swim BC has career opportunities available for motivated and skilled individuals. We offer a competitive salary and benefits package. We are currently hiring for our Administrative Coordinator and Club Services Manager positions.
April Golden Flipper results are now available. The standings in the challenge have stayed steady this past month. Swim BC is holding a strong lead across all categories. On the club side of the results, HYACK is holding a strong lead in the SCM BC standings and SKSC has taken the lead in the LCM BC standings. With Spring meets heating up, we will certainly see some movement next month. Keep up the great work swimmers!
Swim BC invites you to be part of the conversation.
