2 hour rule and Winter Maintenance payment
Just a reminder that as a summer swim club to keep a swimmer’s “S” status, the BCSSA 2 hour rule must be followed otherwise the swimmer is an “O” category swimmer. Here is the official wording:
Summer (‘S’) Swimmer:
A swimmer who trains and competes with BCSSA for an unrestricted number of hours between May 1st and September 30th of each year; and from October 1st to April 30th, may swim ONLY TWO HOURS or less of coached swimming (considered to be any swimming under the direction of a coach, parent, designated trainer; or being given a workout schedule from a coach, parent or designate). Any swim training that is self-directed by the swimmer, OR any participation in Red Cross swim lessons, Life Saving Programs (NLS, WSI, Bronze Medallion, Bronze Cross) are all exempt from the 2 hour rule.
Also, if you have not yet paid for Winter maintenance, please look for Noreen De Pol or Cheryl Morch to give them payment before the first swim.
