Swim BC Fee

The Campbell River Killer Whales Swim Club is sanctioned by SwimBC and Swimming Canada. Every swimmer that is registered with the club must pay a yearly SwimBC insurance fee in order to participate in club activities. The SwimBC fee is valid from September 1st to August 31st. The amount is set annually by SwimBC and varies according to the age of the swimmer, as of December 31st. One hundred percent of the SwimBC fee collected by the club is remitted to SwimBC.

There are two main categories of swimmer: Pre-Competitive and Competitive


This includes swimmers who are enrolled in fitness, learn to swim programs (Mini Whales), or other development programs and who do not wish to participate in sanctioned competitions. Pre-competitive swimmers can compete as exhibition in one sanctioned event per season (this includes a meet or time trial). If swimmers wish to compete in more sanctioned competitions, they can be upgraded to the Competitive category.


This registration allows swimmers to take part in unlimited sanctioned events and competitive initiatives.
