Please see the attached message from the BCSSA President regarding the effect of COVID-19 on the BCSSA.

Summer Season 2020 – Timelines and decisions

BCSSA recognizes that clubs and members are anxious to have confirmation on our 2020 Summer swimming season sooner rather than later. In our current fluid global environment, these decisions with their long-term financial ramifications are difficult to make and, as such, we have determined key dates on which to make strategic planning decisions.

Deadlines for the BCSSA Board regarding this season
April 15: Decision deadline for traditional May 1 season start date
May 1: Decision deadline for initiating a modified 2020 summer swimming season with a traditional Provincial Championships held at UBC.
May 15: Decision deadline for initiating a modified 2020 summer swimming season with a simulated Provincial Championships run Regionally.

Please know that, despite our best efforts and continual monitoring of information sources, nothing is set in stone due to this rapidly changing situation… we are doing the best we can to predict an unknown future!

Please exercise patience and kindness as we move forward together (yet apart!)
