UPDATE: 2020 Summer Swim Season

Posted by Kigoos Swim Club on Apr 10 2020 at 09:53AM PDT

Dear Kigoos Families,

Due to the ongoing global Covid-19 pandemic, it is with deepest regret that the Richmond Kigoos Board of Directors have made the difficult decision to cancel the 2020 summer swim season. This decision has been made after the announcement by the BCSSA to cancel the 2020 Provincial Championships at UBC and in consultation with Fraser South Regional swim clubs.

Our Board of Directors have chosen to provide full refunds for all fees paid for summer registrations. Refunds to families will be issued by cheque regardless of your payment remittance in order to avoid additional processing fees and it will be mailed to the address you provided on your registration form.

Our registrar and treasurer are working to provide refunds as quickly as possible and ask for your patience. If you have not received your refund cheque by April 30th, please contact our treasurer by email at treasurer@kigoos.com.

Optimistically, we would love to see all of our swimmers back in the pool. If we are able to offer a summer season, we hope to provide a condensed program and look forward to welcoming all of our Kigoos families back at that time. As of right now, this decision does not impact our winter Tsunami programming.

The Board of Directors would like to acknowledge Coach Emmy and our 2020 coaches and extend our appreciation for their dedication to our Kigoos Swim Club.

In closing as we approach the long weekend and many of our families celebrate Passover and Easter, let us also be grateful to those keeping us safe, those working to maintain essential services, and those doing their best to control this pandemic. Thank you for your patience and understanding in the weeks ahead.

Warmest regards,
Kigoos Board of Directors
