Return to Play version 4
Version 4 of the Return to Play document is now available on our website:
A Return to Swim Step 3 guidelines document is also available.
We want to remind you that everyone must collaborate and follow the health protocols described in the Return to Play to protect all members. Swim Manitoba have made a commitment to the City of Winnipeg and the Provincial Health Authority that we will follow our return to play plans. The Winnipeg area has moved to orange level and the number of cases have increased significantly in the past weeks, we all need to remain vigilant and careful if we want to keep our sport as safe as possible, and enable our swimmers to continue to swim without interruption or regression within the limits of swimmers per lane.
Back to Competition
Swim Manitoba has begun discussions with the Manitoba Swimming Coach Association (MSCA), the City of Winnipeg, and the Manitoba Health Authority, to plan scenarios for racing opportunities during this unconventional season. It was a productive, and positive brainstorming session with a variety of ideas coming from the meeting. We will build some scenarios and plans for our next meeting.
NCCP Courses Opportunities
Swim Manitoba is delivering its first ever online NCCP Swimming 101 course over two weekends, September 26-27, as well as October 3 and 4.
It is important to note that as of last spring, all the NCCP Swimming 101, Swimming 201 and Swimming 301 courses are being offered online across the country. In most cases, coaches can now register for a course offered by another province. Be careful to check the language in which the course will be delivered.
Sport Manitoba Coaching will offer many online courses this fall. Please find the list of upcoming courses by clicking this LINK.
