2 hour rule and Winter Maintenance payment

Posted by Nanaimo White Rapids Swim Club on Jan 14 2015 at 09:29AM PST

Good morning,

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.

Thank you,
