Policy Title: National Registration
Swimming Canada maintains a national registry including Provincial Section members, Special Interest Group members (High Performance Clubs, CSCTA, Athletes Council, OCRC, MSC), clubs, swimmers, coaches, and officials.
National Registration, guided and directed through a central point, is intended to make it possible for swimmers to make a smooth transition between developmental levels and governing jurisdictions. The national registration process also serves to track and monitor the demographic profile of the Swimming Canada membership for the purposes of reporting, strategic planning and programming. National registration system data is tied to competition entries, results, rankings and records for the purpose of accurate and prompt postings, and development and maintenance of competitive results history.
Swimming Canada sets rules and procedures for all aspects of swimmer registration. Provincial Section members have the obligation to inform clubs and club registrants on procedures and consents required. Provincial Section members may introduce procedures and rules in addition to Swimming Canada’s standards and requirements.
An on-line database will be maintained by Swimming Canada for the purpose of Provincial Section, special interest group members, club, university/college team, coach, officials and swimmer registrations under the supervision and accountability of the CEO or delegate.
All Provincial Section members, special interest group members, swimmers, coaches and officials must be registered on an annual basis.
