The External Sport Credentials Program (ESCP) gives students the opportunity to earn graduation credits for approved levels of competition as an athlete, coach, and/or official.

External credits are available for swimmers registered with Swim BC who have met the following criteria:

    • Athlete 10: 13-14 female / 13-14 male BC Provincial Championship qualifying standard (Swim BC)
    • Athlete 11: 15 years female / 16 years male Canadian Junior Championships qualifying standard (Swimming Canada)
    • Athlete 12: 16 years female / 17 years male Canadian Swimming Championships qualifying standard (Swimming Canada)

Regardless of when the performance was achieved, the times will be compared against the current season’s time standards to make the determination of a swimmer’s eligibility for credit. The current BC time standards can be found here. The Swimming Canada Time standards can be found here.

To apply for credit, please fill out the application form. Swim BC will review the submission and email the applicant a letter that can be presented to their school counsellor.
