*Updated Tuesday 25 August 2020 and is subject to change at any time without notice*
The current health situation in NSW and across the country is constantly changing. Swimming NSW will continue to plan for a full 2020-21 summer season of events and as such has opened, and will continue to open, entries for events through to the end of the year. Understandably, while the situation remains fluid, you may have some questions about how the upcoming meets will be administered to comply with government regulations and health guidelines. To help our community make sense of the current situation, we have put together answers to some FAQs below.
Am I allowed to compete at a meet outside of my area?
If the meet is on 30 September or earlier: No, you can only attend events within the area that your club is affiliated with or events that comprise only of competitors from the same area that you are from. A list of areas and their clubs can be found here.
If the meet is after 30 September: Yes. Providing there are no changes to the current Government Guidelines (which is subject to change at any time), you can enter meets that are anywhere in NSW that you are eligible for. E.g. NSW Long Course Qualifying Meet, 10 & 11 October.
The latest NSW Community Sport Guidelines that came into place on Wednesday 19 August, advises that swimmers compete at meets in their local areas only. Club/event organisers are to ensure that no out of area participants attend their events. This restriction will remain in place until 30 September 2020.
Can spectators attend?
Under current health guidelines, one parent can attend per child. Spectators will be required to pre-purchase tickets for the event (which will be available for purchase on our event page closer to the event) and will assigned an area for seating. We ask that if you have more than one swimmer attending in your family, that only one spectator attends per family where possible. Please note, this may change/
How will Swimming NSW satisfy the 500-capacity limit at the event venue, should this limit still apply at the time of the event?
Swimming NSW will have procedures in place to adhere to the Government restrictions. We will have a strict cap of 500 participants and will stagger entry times for competitors to the venue, based on the events they are competing in. Limits to the number of spectators allowed into the venue will also apply.
Does the 500 capacity limit include spectators, staff & officials?
A 500-capacity limit will be applied to pool deck and the grandstand (i.e. 500 on pool deck & 500 in the stands). The pool deck limit will also include staff and officials. Guidelines on this will be distributed to attendees with the start list.
**Please note the 500 capacity limit is subject to change due to Government Restrictions.
If the current prospected guidelines change and I am no longer able to attend will I receive a refund?
Yes, if a meet is unable to go ahead or changes to Government restrictions exclude you from attending an event refund will be provided.
What other COVID Health & Safety Measures should I be aware of on the day?
Swimming NSW will distribute all important venue and event specific information in regard to COVID-19 protocols prior to the event to all attendees.
