Fall 2019 Warmup Meet – Oct 19/20

Hi everyone,

Our first home meet will be here before we know it! Oct 19&20th. This is a great opportunity for new and returning swimmers to get “their feet wet” lol in the comfort of our own pool.

The cost to participate is $20 per swimmer. Please send an e-transfer to Annette. with the password meetfees. You can also send her a lump sum at anytime and she will keep track of your meet fees and let you know when you need to top up your account.

Please email me back to confirm by Oct 1st, the sooner the better, so that I can get the entries started. As this is our home meet, I would like all swimmers to participate.

I have attached the meet package and I will be discussing with the swimmers their suggested events.

Thank you.

Norac – Montreal Meet 2020

Hi everyone,
We have just returned from the Montreal Samak International Meet held at Jean-Drapeau Parc. This is an amazing facility where the previous World Championships were held. It is an outdoor facility and all of our attendees loved the pool and the meet.
I am requesting spots at the Montreal meet for 2020 this week. If you are interested, please let me know by Friday June 28th. There is a $10 deposit required per swimmer that I have to send in to the club. If you are interested, please send $10 per swimmer to Annette by e-transfer password is meetfees.
Please send me a confirmation email as well indicating which of your swimmers will be attending.
Going by this year there were no standards for 13 and over. There are standards for 11&12 year olds to participate in the 3 day meet. 11&12, and 10 and under could qualify to participate in the development meet which was held on the Saturday only.
Thank you!

Ice Cream Monday and Tuesday

Hi Everyone!

As next week is the last week of swimming, Trish and I wanted to do something fun for the swimmers. On Monday and Tuesday during the last part of practice, we will be doing an ice cream party where the swimmers can build their own sundae! All we ask is that you send your child to practice with a bowl and spoon – don’t worry, we will make sure they rinse the bowl and spoon out before sticking it back in their swim bag!

On Monday, we will have the Youth +/Jr. Dev. group build their sundaes. On Tuesday, the Elite/Sr. Dev and Youth/Novice will build their sundaes.

If your child is allergic to anything or you have any concerns, please contact me as soon as possible!

NORAC Participation Points Forms for June

Hello NORAC Families,

I hope everyone has had a great year with the club. It is that time when we ask you to submit your participation points forms for the remainder of this season. If you are planning to accumulate more points before the end of June please include them on your form.
As always, you can take a picture of your form and email it to me or drop it off in my folder in the NORAC box at Jack Burger. Please put the form in my folder at the front of the box, I don’t look through everyone’s folder so I will miss it if you put it in your swimmer’s folder.
Deadline to submit your form is Tuesday June 11. If I don’t receive your form I will assume that you are not collecting points.
Thanks again to everyone who has contributed their time, energy and talents this season, the club is better for it!!

NORAC Fundscrip Program

Hello NORAC families,

One of our fundraising initiatives is the purchasing of gift cards through the Fundscrip website.  It is a way that you can raise money for both the club and your own swimmer.  If you have been a participant in this program, any gift cards purchased during the months of June, July and August will be credited towards next year’s season.

If you did not participate in this initiative but would like more information, please send me an email and I can send you more details.

Thank you!
