Whitby Dolphins Hosted Meets

  • Welcome to the Hosted Meets Page !
    here you will find all the information for the meets Whitby is hosting
    • A swim meet is a swim competition between 2 or more swim teams or clubs.
    • Swim meets vary in size from local meets through regional, provincial, national and international competitions.
    • Meets can be hosted by a single club or co-hosted by 2 or more clubs and can be located at any pool (not just their home pool).

    Your Whitby Dolphins have been building a reputation for hosting successful meets. And we’re getting better with each meet we host.

    It’s this reputation that prompted Swim Ontario to contact us to run the swimming portion of the North American Indigenous Games (NAIG) in July 2017. This was very successful and we received countless compliments for our efforts. 

    Even Swim Ontario has recognized us for our efforts at NAIG with a special recognition award at their annual Awards Banquet Sept 23, 2017.

    The 2017/2018 swim season was busy with hosted meets. We hosted 4 meets:

    • Local (Spring Splash at Whitby),
    • Regional (Central Region B champs - co hosted with MSSAC),
    • Provincial (Ontario Team Challenge at Markham) 

    The 2018/2019 swim season will see a similar level of commitment to our hosted meets. We will be hosting 3 meets: one local and 2 Provincial level meets.

    We continue to host the Ontario Team Challenge meet, moved back to April 2018 and we have been selected by the Province to host the summer Provincial Championships

    here are the particulars

    Hosted swim meets are very crucial to the sustainability of a swim club. They have several main goals:

    • Raise funds for the club
    • Opportunity to train members in various officials and non-official roles
    • Elevates the club branding within the swimming community
    • Shows off our ability to host quality swim meets
    • The kids have fun and love it (the most important goal or all)

    You will be asked to support your club in organizing and running these meets. In the interim, if you have any questions on how you can help, please email me at meets@whitbydolpins.com

    Go Whitby!
