Policy Update

Kevin Coulman

Dear Calgary Patriots Members,

As you may be aware, the Calgary Patriots Swim Club Board has had a mandate over the past two seasons to develop an operating program and policies that make up that program.  This effort is to ensure sound policies are in place to drive the current and future success of the organization and allow us to manage situations in a consistent and organized manner.  Although this work continues and maintenance of the program will be ongoing for future Boards, a number of policies have been completed and are now posted on the Calgary Patriots website.  I would encourage you to take some time to read the policies prior to registration for the 2020/21 swim season as many of them will make up the registration package.  These policies are in line with Swim Alberta expectations and we believe establish a solid foundation for the management of the club. 

On a side note, I hope everyone is weathering the COVID-19 storm as best they can and that your families are staying healthy.  It’s been difficult on the kids not being in the pool and with friends on a daily basis, but it’s my hope that absence from the water enhances or re-ignites their passion for the sport and once we can get back to the sport we love, successes for the swimmers, volunteers and the club are overwhelming.

Stay Safe,

Rick Lalonde,
V.P. Swimming
