News and Announcements
The Neptunes will be practicing from July 6 to August 14 in the Salmo Pool under a Return to Swim plan. Things will be quite a bit different as we are part of a larger phased return to sport plan due to COVID-19. Unfortunately, there will be no hands-on coaching so we will not be able to have any younger developmental swimmers. The swim practices will look different as we must maintain 2m distance between swimmers which means all participants must be able to swim at least 100m without stopping.
We are also looking at organizing a masters swim program for adults that are able to swim at least 100m without stopping. If you are interested, please register for the Masters program. If we can not run the program or the times won’t work, we will refund you without penalty.

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!)
