BCSSA office, 205 – 2323 Boundary Rd.
7-9 pm May 24, Stroke & Turn
Vancity on Shaughnessy, Port Coquitlam
If you are interested in becoming an official for swimming this year, a Stroke and Turn clinic is the place to start learning. For new parents, it’s a great way to learn about the sport and get ready to start volunteering at swim meets. If you already have experience as a Stroke and Turn official, you may want to try the Starter and Referee clinic. All deck officials should attend a clinic each year to update and refresh your knowledge. Attending clinics counts as hours toward your family’s volunteer obligations.
If you have not already reserved a spot at the clinics, please reply to this email and indicate which one(s) you are interested in attending.
Our intra-club meet on May 28 will be a great chance for new officials to start the season off with some practical on-deck experience.
Sharks Director of Officials
This camp style clinic is run by one of Canada’s greatest swimmers and the fastest swimmer in Canadian history. As a London 2012 Olympic Games Bronze Medalist, Brent Hayden is the only Canadian to medal at the Olympics in the 100m freestyle. In 2007, he became the first Canadian in 21 years to win Gold at the World Championships. His international career spanned 10 years (2002-2012) which took him to three Olympic Games and six World Championships. He holds six Canadian Records and held two World Records. In 2007, he was voted Canadian Athlete of the Year and was a finalist for the same award in 2012. In 2013, he was inducted into the BC Sport Hall of Fame. He is an expert in stroke, start and turn technique and has valuable knowledge in performance preparation, whether it’s mental, physical, or nutritional.
