This year, Swimming NSW's annual State Forum was held online. Over the past three months, the 2020 SNSW State Forum was delivered via a three-part series of one-hour webinars. The webinars were well-received and well-attended by members. Swimming NSW thanks guest speakers, Lydia Dowse and Ben Ramsden, as well as attendees for helping to make these sessions a success.
If you were unable to join us live, or want to revisit something that was covered, you can watch the full recordings of each session below. These sessions feature important information for our members ahead of the summer season. Catch up on the latest COVID-19 restrictions and how they apply to swim meets and events for the foreseeable future, discover all the new and improved features on Swim Central, and ensure you're up-to-date with the new Safe Sport Framework.
