NYAC MEMBER COMMITMENTS AND ASSESSMENTS 2018-19

NYAC runs meets in order to give our swimmers and others the opportunity to compete and show the results for all their long hours of training.  Membership fees cover a portion of NYAC’s operating budget.  Running meets, and other fundraisers such as cookie dough sales and Swim-a-thon, raises the remainder. 

We depend heavily on these items to balance our budget and for this reason we set member commitments.

 

COMMITMENTS

A member’s main commitment activity is meet officiating.  Not fulfilling the requirements in this area will result in an non-participation penalty of $125 per missed session charged to the member account. 

Meets
Volunteers from the host club are necessary to help officiate (minimum age 14), make and serve food (minimum age 18), and to perform administrative tasks in order to run an effective swim meet. A session refers to a section of the meet that is approximately four to five hours long.  The required commitments for all competitive families for the 2018-2019 season will be 8 sessions (please see paragraph below as to how these sessions must be spread over the season).  The following is the current projected schedule of NYAC hosted meets:

The 2018-19 session commitment must be spread over the season as follows:

  • October - February - 5 Sessions
  • March - June - 3 Sessions

Please mark your calendars and check our website for updated NYAC hosted meet information as we finalize our meet plans.  If you have questions regarding this, please contact Charlotte Carroll - meets@nyacswimming.ca.

A NON-PARTICIPATION PENALTY of $125 per session missed will be charged to the families' account.  Sessions earned over your session obligation will earn a $75 credit to your account.

Please check the NYAC website for up-to-date meet information throughout the season.

Time Trials
A swimmer participating in a time trial must have one timer ready to officiate. If the timer does not sign in on deck to the Time Trial Officials manager, the swimmer may not be permitted to swim.

 

OFFICIATING
Families first year with the club - Every member family must complete courses needed to certify at least one volunteer to Strokes & Turns level. To accomplish this, two courses are required; the 'Intro to Swim Officiating' (timekeeper) clinic and 'Judge of Stroke & Inspector of Turns' (Stroke & Turns).

Returning Families: Every member family must take 1 new course (online or at a clinic) every year by May 31 until all courses up to Level 3 have been completed.

Members are encouraged to work at other host club meets to achieve the sign-offs required to attain their Level 3. 

POINTS PROGRAM AND FUNDRAISING

Points Program
Our Points Program will be published on our website.  Points earned will be applied towards next year's fees.  Our Fundraising Program also can be used to help reduce your swim fees.  Please see the website for plans for the upcoming swim season.

Swim-a-thon - VOLUNTARY
Each family is asked to raise funds for our annual Swim-a-thon. Most clubs in Ontario participate in a Swim-a-thon as a way of support for the sport of swimming and as a method of financial support for the club.  

There are many fundraising opportunities available to families throughout the year. Any monies raised will be split with the club on a 50/50 basis and credited towards the following year’s fees. The current opportunities for the 2018 - 2019 season will be outlined on our website.  If you are available to help our BINGO team please contact Olga Macel at admin@nyacswimming.ca 

Returning members will not be permitted to register in 2018-2019 season until the above commitments and assessments from the previous year have been fulfilled.
