Megan Narsing News

With clubs starting up again and swimmers back in the pools Swim Alberta is excited to introduce the next part in the Racing Unplugged Series – The Racing Unplugged: Summer Passport. The summer passport will offer the same events as the fall passport to ensure that swimmers have the opportunity to challenge themselves against their fall results. Coaches and/or swimmers may choose to repeat events or race different events.  Results from the Fall Passport are published on the Swim Alberta website.

Passport Events times will be accepted from June 15 – August 31st 2021. The deadline for submissions is September 6th 2021. These results will provide Swim Alberta with a picture of the current level of swimming performance.
Rankings will be posted approximately one week after the closing date. Draw prizes will be awarded based on submissions received by the deadline.
