  • August 3, 2020 - Latest Club Swim Assessment Survey Now Available
    The latest Club Swim Assessment Survey covering August 1-15, is now open. This survey is intended to help document our safe return to the water and provide Pacific Swimming with the information and feedback necessary for planning over the next several months. This data is also being collected so that, in the event of a second wave of COVID-19 infections in our area, we can establish support to the claim that swim practice is not a high risk activity. It should be filled out by each team's coach or manager and should take no more than a couple of minutes. Click for the link.
