While the order does include restricting “ inside group physical activities” such as hockey, swimming at this time is not included as we ARE able to maintain physical distancing, we are abiding by the restricted number of swimmers per lane and we continue to ensure our safe return to swim plan is adhered to.

Pools remain open and we continue to monitor for further direction as needed by Swim BC and the Provincial Health Office. The Gators Swim Club Board in collaboration with our Coaches will remain vigilant and will continue to communicate with you on any updates received.
