Swimming Canada Facility Rules and Guidelines - wording for Meet Packages
Swimming Canada (Facility working group) has created consistent language that must be incorporated in all Meet Packages submitted for sanctioning beginning in September 2018. The goal is to ensure that the type of start being used at all sanctioned competitions is clearly articulated in all Meet Packages.
Meet Managers and Referees, please check to make sure this information is added to your meet package before submitting for sanctioning.
Bulletin topics are:
FINA and Canadian Rulebooks
Swimming Canada Facility Rules and Guidelines
Clinic Updating Procedure

OFFICIALS BULLETIN – December 2017
Thank you to those officials who were able to join us in Toronto for the National Officials Symposium. We had representation from every province which contributed to great conversations and perspectives shared during the roundtable discussions. The discussions and information shared by the participants represented the perspectives of those in attendance and in the coming months the OCRC will review all the comments to work toward addressing the various topics covered. There were no right or wrong answers during the roundtables, simply perspectives of the many who were able to participate.Read More
