NCSA Update - Covid Calendar, Challenges and Virtual Bottle Drive

Do Not Reply

Hello Parents!

 

Well, at least the weather is better.

The coaches have been meeting regularly and have a lot of great events planned for the next few weeks.

We are also taking this time to assess our program and are asking for your feedback. If you have any suggestions for our upcoming season, we would love to hear from you. Please contact your squad’s coach directly and let us know what we are doing that you love and what we could do to improve our program.

We have added a COVID Tab to the website.  SubTab #1 NCSA+Covid - Here you'll be able to check any pertinent email that we have sent out over the last 6 weeks.  Sub-tab #2 - Activity Calendar - You be able to check what going on each day for NCSA.  Links are posted live on this calendar.  So, if you lose an email, just check the links in calendar.  We have the calendar until the end of April.  We will be posting the May calendar ASAP.  Coaches are going to continue posting individual activities and dryland programs for the squads under the squad's tab. 

 

NCSA Social Distancing Bottle Drive 

If your garage is starting to look like an episode of hoarders, do we have a solution for you!

Skip The Depot – SKIPTHEDEPOT

This is an app that you can download to your phone.

Choose Nose Creek Swim Association as your charity of choice.

You will have two options:

  1.  skip the depot will come to your address and pick up – NCSA will receive 70% of the donation
  2. drop & go – the app will give you a code and a list of valid drop & go locations. You skip the line and leave the bottles clearly marked with the code and NCSA will receive 95% of the donation

NCSA Give Back

Although our 25th season was cut abruptly short, we still want to give back to the communities that have supported us.

Linda Bruce contacted two senior homes, one in Airdrie and one in Calgary. They both have many isolated seniors that would love to receive a handwritten letter from our swimmers. Siblings are more than welcome to take part as well.

The coaches are going to drop off the letters, if your swimmers would like to participate, please let your coach know and we will arrange a social distance approved drop off location.  We would like to have this done for Monday, April 27th.

Clean-Up Challenge

If you haven’t seen the Facebook post, Coach Robin picked up 2 full bags of garbage on her daily walks and has challenged our athletes to do the same. Swim Alberta shared this post and other swim clubs have stepped up! It would be really great to see this take off, please grab a bag, pick up the garbage in your neighborhood, and send pictures to Robin to post.

 

COVID Calendar - Activities

Please find attached NCSA’s COVID Calendar. The coaches will have something for our swimmers to connect and engage every weekday.

Please find attached the Calendars – links to the zoom workouts can be found on our homepage on our website under  COVID Tab.

 

Stay safe, stay home if you can and hopefully, we will be seeing you poolside soon!
