Occasionally the Club has an opportunity to work Bingos. An email soliciting volunteers will be sent out when needed. Spots are filled on a first come, first serve basis.
Participating in fundraisers are mandatory and have set guidelines depending on the group you are in. Please check you group level and verify the commitment level. If you have any questions, please contact the Director of Fundraising directly at email@example.com
By active participation in fundraising, fees can be maintained at a reasonable level. Most dry land training fees are included. Should you decide to withdraw early, notification must be submitted in writing to firstname.lastname@example.org , two weeks in advance. Triton withdrawal policy and rates can be found under parent education/policy. Entry fees for meets, travel costs, equipment costs, etc., will be assessed at the time the expense is incurred and billed to your family account. Family Accounts are to be paid in full when statements are sent out. The Swim Club relies extensively on fundraising and sponsorship to generate Club revenues. The advantage of fundraising, is that Club fees are kept at lower levels. Fundraising is an easy way to help pay your fees.
Sponsorship is another form of fund raising that involves all Club members. Sponsors are generally solicited for Club events such as the Swim Meets. For such events, a letter will go out to Club members requesting that they approach individuals and companies for sponsorship. Should you be interested in Sponsorship, please contact our Director of Fundraising at email@example.com
Parent’s play two vital roles at swim meet competitions. In order to provide a top quality swim experience, many officials are required. There are a number of different types of officials required; timers, stroke and turn judges, marshaling, etc. These positions are all within the capabilities of any parent and short training clinics are provided to train the inexperienced. These clinics teach the basic skills and can lead to S.N.C. officiating designations. For more information please visit our Officiating Link under meets / events.
All Triton swim families registered in the competitive program will be required to have a minimum of 1 certified official.
Competitive program means they are eligible to compete at meets. The Triton Can Swim (TCS) program is not a competitive program. It is a learning program, developing swimmers to enter the competitive Program.
Each season as you continue in the Triton program you will be expected to take the necessary clinics in order to become a more senior official. This is your chance to get ahead of the game. The level 1 official course is also available online at http://www.swimofficials.ca. Classroom Course dates will be posted below as they become available.
For more information on officiating please refer to the Officiating section of the website under “Officiation 101” tab
