Our main fundraising event of the year is our Annual Auction, taking place at Doolittle's on Sun Nov 25th. For more details, please contact Tracy LeBlanc at This year's Auction Letter can be viewed and downloaded from here:


Each swimmer’s family is responsible for a certain amount of volunteer participation towards the management and fair functioning of our club. Below, please find the number of participation points each level of swimmer is required to collect; if you do not reach your target number of points, you will be assessed a monetary amount for the unattained points, where each point equals one dollar. Please note that participation points are allotted by family, not by swimmer. If a family has more than one swimmer in the club, the participation points for the highest level swimmer are used:

  • Maintenance/Participation (i.e. “Bluefin”) level: 150 pts
  • NovaTech Level 1: 350 pts
  • NovaTech Level 2 and all Age Group Levels: 400 pts

Participation Point Values for Volunteering Activities:

  • Organizing a fundraiser (e.g. bottle drive, Avon, cookie dough etc.): 50 pts
  • Participating in a fundraiser: 25 pts
  • Organizing the annual auction: 100 pts
  • Working the day of the auction: 25 pts
  • Attending official club meeting meetings: 25 pts/parent in attendance
  • Volunteering for a swim meet hosted by SBSC: 50 pts per 4-hr period (documented: e.g. set-up, marshalling, hospitality room, canteen, etc.)
  • Officiating at a swim meet: 50 pts/session (or 4-hr period)
