NORAC News Feed
Hello Norac families
For those of you that don’t know me I am Heather Pickering, Logan Pickering’s mom, he is in youth and I will be organizing the food for the upcoming meet. This is my first time doing the food so please let me know if there are any issues. I have attached the document for food sign up. Please only sign up for one item on one day to allow everyone a chance to gain points.
For those that are bringing food, please have your food at the pool on time, by 11:30 Saturday and 10:30 Sunday. Time is needed for setting up, so please have your plates ready to serve officials and coaches when you bring it to the pool. (like you would have ready for guests in your own home). Please feel free to contact me with any questions or suggestions and looking forward to meeting everyone poolside! Thanks for your help!

Welcome NORAC Parents to Swim-A-Thon 2019-2020!
On behalf of the board and coaching staff we are excited to announce our NORAC Swim-A-Thon campaign for this year!
Our club, once again, will be fundraising using Swim Canada’s online fundraising program. This allows us to raise money quickly and easily all from just a few clicks from our computers.
All of us will now be able to reach out to family, colleagues, friends, and utilize the tools of social networks in Canada and throughout the world to increase our “Swim-A-Thon” dollars raised this year. In fact, if you have ever participated in a national charity event you will know that raising valuable funds for special causes is made easier through tools like RaiseAThon.
Our club this year has a goal to raise $10,000 and we will put this money towards keeping our fees low! NORAC has one of the lowest club fees in the GTA. We would like to continue this, and keep our fees as low as possible, by using the proceeds from Swim-A-Thon. Our club directly receives 90% of the funds raised so let’s work to meet and exceed our goal.
With everyone’s support, we can CRUSH this goal!
Our Swim-A-Thon will involve all swimmers and it will be held on March 26th at our pool, Jack Burger.
CALL to ACTION:
Register ASAP! We encourage the parents to go online and assist your swimmer(s) with the registration – Families with >1 child, we encourage you to register a single account. Realize this year, the family affidavit is part of the online swimmer registration.

Please see the attached assignments for the upcoming meet here: NORAC Time Trial Jan 26 2020 (1)
Please be at the pool for an 8:00 am warm up start. We should be completed by 11:00 am.
We are still in need of a couple of extra people if you have not responded yet or have a student at home that could use some volunteer points, please let me know.
This is a very easy meet to get your first experience helping on deck and we can provide some quick training for anyone looking to learn.
Please make sure you are wearing clean deck shoes and be prepared to get your feet a bit wet. These are long races and we ask that you provide your own water bottle to avoid leaving the pool area unless necessary.
We are not able to provide sign offs for deck evaluations for this event. Please see me and we will make sure you have the appropriate allocations for the next home meet.
