WELCOME TO THE MASTERS SWIMMING ASSOCIATION OF B.C.
CURRENT INFORMATION FOR OUR MEMBERS:
Current COVID-19 Information
For up-to-date information on COVID-19 and how public health orders, recommendations and guidance apply to swimming and MSABC, please visit Swim BC.
The latest Membership Bulletin on COVID-19 posted on November 22nd can be found here.
It contains important information regarding changes to Section AA of the revised PHO Order on Gathering and Events which now states that the order does not apply to “swimming and activities in swimming pools”. Previously this clause stated “swimming pools” only.
Given this, adult sport (read Master Swimming) is now exempt from proof of vaccination requirements.
Non-employee coaches and spectators are required to show proof of vaccination as they are not participating in the “activity in the pool”.
Application Extension: Club and Coach Support Fund
At the 2020 AGM, the MSABC membership approved the proposed 2020-21 budget, which included a $20,000 extraordinary expense line item intended for provision of financial assistance to MSABC affiliated clubs and their registered coaches for unplanned transitional costs associated with adhering to Swim BC and SNC registration and coaching requirements.
At the 2021 AGM, the MSABC membership approved extending the MSABC Club & Coach Support Fund through the 2021-22 swim season.
2021/2022 Registration is upon us and the new updated Masters Registration Guide from Swim BC is available here.
The Guide contains useful information on how to register your Masters club or organization with Swim BC and is a valuable resource for Club Registrars.
Please see the registration update for more important details.
