2017 Changes to Credit System & Participation at Meets

The Newmarket Stingrays exist largely because of the financial benefit of our swim meets.  There has been in the past a large burden placed on some families to run these meets while others at their choice have not been as involved.  Over the summer The Board of Directors has been working with Swim Ontario and reviewing other club’s policies to involve more of our membership.  It is in the best interest of the long-term viability of the club to make the following policy changes regarding our participation credit system, specifically, as it pertains to swim meet involvement.

  • A minimum of six session must be worked per family per season
  • Each swimmer’s parent or guardian will be required to complete one official’s clinic per year

Failure to comply with both requirements above will result in a $100 fine per session/course missed at the completion of our final swim meet.
