Spring & Summer AA Championships Update

MEMO TO: Club Presidents, Meet Managers, Officials Chairpersons, Head Coaches
FROM: Christy Yaremczuk, Regional Programs Manager – christy@swimontario.com
DATE: Wednesday, September 27, 2017
SUBJECT: Spring & Summer AA Championships Update

The Provincial AA Championships are a new provincial meet requested by the Swim Ontario Coaches in September of 2016.  This initiative, refined by the Sport Development Committee and supported by the Executive Director, is part of our plan to engage 2300 Ontario swimmers in provincial competition.

Much work has been undertaken by Swim Ontario staff and committees over the past several months to develop a format and qualifying time standards with an approximate subscription of 700-750 swimmers, which should provide a revenue stream for host organizations.

The 2018 Ontario Spring and Summer AA Championships currently remain without hosts.

The competition dates are set for

  1. Spring Ontario AA Championships – March 1-4, 2018,
  2. Summer Ontario AA Championships – June 28 – July 1, 2018.

Swim Ontario continues to be committed to working with facilities, clubs and regions throughout the province on finding hosting solutions to ensure that these two competitions are run.  We have a firm deadline of October 30, 2017 to find hosts for these events.

Rather than the alternative of cancelling these competitions

  • Swim Ontario is encouraging applications for hosting, co-hosting, or regionally hosting these meets;
  • Swim Ontario will work with clubs or regions on all aspects of preparing for and hosting these two events, including facility agreements;

and

  • all partnership options will be considered.

Having previously hosted a provincial competition is not mandatory for consideration.  Clubs or regions interested, or requiring further information on hosting these two competitions can contact Christy Yaremczuk at christy@swimontario.com.
