Time Trial for Polar Bears, Kodiaks, Silver Tips
Good morning WGB swimmers and parents,
Swim BC is not sanctioning (making official) any events for the month of October. They will be releasing their COVID-19 guidelines for official events by the end of October.
However, Coach Carmen would like to have all Polar Bear, Kodiak, and Silver Tip swimmers participate in a racing event to get everyone "back on the blocks" and to assess where each swimmer is currently at. Time trial will be Saturday, October 17th from 7:00-10:00am.
Silver Tips will swim: 400 free, 200 IM, and 100 free.
Kodiaks will swim: 400 free, 200 IM, and 100 free.
Polar Bears will swim: 200 free, 200 IM, and 100 free.
As there are restrictions in place for numbers of people in the pool area and this isn't an official event; we will run it with a referee, starter, and meet manager only, and the swimmers will be timers when they aren't swimming. Mr. Petriw will be the referee, I am the meet manager, and Brenda Petriw will be the starter.
Coach Carmen has planned to have four additional time trials before Christmas so please be prepared to volunteer as officials. We are looking to train as many people in officiating roles as possible. Please let me know directly if you would like to train as a meet manager. It is best to have a few people in this role.
Please either sign up your swimmer to participate or decline your swimmer as not participating by October 13th.
