SPECIAL ANNOUNCEMENT: CLUB GUIDELINES FOR RESTARTING SWIMMING ACTIVITY

Last Friday 8 May, the National Cabinet announced a national three-step plan to re-open a COVID-safe Australia. For several weeks, Swimming NSW has been working in collaboration with Swimming Australia, State/Territory associations and ASCTA, along with the AIS, Sport Australia, and Federal and State Governments on a plan for clubs and swimmers to safely return to swimming activity once restrictions have eased. Below is a summary of these guidelines and well as links to important information for clubs to help them prepare for the resumption of swimming activity.

 

It is important to remember that individual state and territory governments have ultimate discretion and final decision-making power based on their individual circumstances and local conditions and may choose to ease restrictions at a different pace. Similarly, the decision to re-open may differ between individual facility owners and their businesses and across communities based on local conditions and other factors.  

 

In NSW and ACT, the status of restrictions (as at 14 May 2020) is:

• NSW: From 15 May 2020, outdoor pools can operate but can have no more than 10 people at a time and no more than one person per lane. Change areas will also be closed. 

• ACT: From 16 May 2020, pools are able to re-open for training and public use however limits apply – no more than one swimmer is permitted per lane, with no more than 10 people (a small group) in the facility at any one time. NB: Government-owned pools, including Gungahlin Pool, Canberra Olympic Pool, Tuggeranong Pool, and Erindale Active Leisure Centre, will not re-open at this time while maintenance and upgrade works are completed. Government-owned outdoor pools - Dickson Pool and Manuka Pool - remain closed for winter as is usually the case. Read more.

Prior to resuming sporting activity, all clubs are recommended to have a clear Return to Play in a COVID-safe Environment framework. We recommend that clubs start developing their COVID-safe plans as soon as possible to ensure they are ready to resume swimming activity once the relevant easing of restrictions allows them to do so. The jointly prepared Swimming Australia National Guidelines for Restarting Club Environments outlines 10 recommendations for clubs to consider/implement prior to the resumption of swimming activity, as follows: 

1. The club has nominated a COVID-19 liaison

2. The club is familiar with its state/local government restrictions re: COVID-19

3. The club has checked its facility’s safety protocols

4. The club has put in place infection limitation measures around water bottles and equipment

5. The club is managing swimmer numbers in accordance with the guidelines

6. The club is ready to respond if a swimmer becomes sick whilst training

7. The club has a communication plan should a case of COVID-19 be confirmed

8. The club is considering and is practicing current work health and safety measures

9. The club has an appropriate drop off/pick up procedure for swimmers in place

10. The club has considered COVID-19 vulnerable groups within the club environment

 These guidelines should be read in conjunction with the AIS Framework for Rebooting Sport in a COVID-19 Environment.

 

Further to the above, the following general COVID-safe principles will apply. 

• Maintain 1.5m social distancing at all times

• Get in, train and get out

• Practice good hand hygiene before and after training

• Come ready to swim

• Stay home if you, or a family member, are unwell

• Don’t share food, drinks, equipment or towels

• Follow the one person per 4 square metres rule to ensure sufficient physical distancing between participants

 

SNSW Youth Advisory Panel 

 

Thank you to anyone who contributed their thoughts and ideas in reply to Kayla Bentley. A copy of Kayla’s response is provided for your reading has been posted on the NACSC Team App.

Any further correspondence will be posted and if you are harbouring any suggestions, feel free to direct your point of view to Kayla. 

 

Hi Vinh,

 

Thanks for your email update. I hope that you and your family are coping well during this time, and congratulations on your new daughter! 

 

I have spoken to some members of my swimming club as well as my coach, and the common theme was to review qualifying times and possibly relax them for major meets such as State, Metropolitan and Country, as everyone will be quite rusty after not training for such a long period of time. Also extending the length of time that people have to gain their qualifying times- rather than having to have swum the time after October the previous year, back date it to say January so swimmers are able to use times that they swum earlier in the previous year which would make up for the time missed.

 

Another suggestion in terms of swim meets returning- there will be a lot of demand for entering competitions as everyone will want to have a swim, and I understand that all meets have to have a limit. I thought that we should somehow stop people from entering multiple swim meets initially- to allow everyone the opportunity to have a swim. For example, in the first month that competition returns, if there are 4 swim meets at SOPAC and I wanted to gain a qualifying time, I would have to only choose one of those 4. This would limit the amount of people that miss out on entering because someone is entered on multiple weekends. To make it reasonable, you could say that from 2 weeks prior to the meet the entries open up to everyone, regardless if you have already swum a meet in the month. Alternatively, allow each district to host a meet that is just for clubs in their district as well as their district championships.

 

 

Please let me know if you have any further questions, and I am excited for when things get up and running and to be a part of the Youth Advisory Panel once again.

 

Thank you and kind regards,

 

Kayla Bentley 

 

 

 

 

Dear Swimming Community,
 
First and foremost, on behalf of Swimming Australia including the Australian Dolphins Swim Team, I wanted to write to send my best wishes to you and your family as well as your teams, volunteers and club members around the country at this time. There’s not one of us that isn’t feeling the impact of this situation as we all navigate this international health crisis. While the past few weeks have been difficult, there are positive signs on the horizon as we enter the next phase,  but we must all continue to play our role and be mindful that there is still a long way to go for a full recovery.
 
Secondly, I want to acknowledge and thank all our States/Territory and member organisations (MOs) who have done an outstanding job ensuring that all their clubs and communities are staying connected and are kept up to date with the ever changing environment, providing critical information as it comes to hand. We will continue to work closely with all MOs to ensure that swimming is ready to scale back up with the appropriate community support when the time comes.
 
As we move toward the stabilisation phase of responding to the pandemic and begin to consider what the ‘revival’ phase may entail, there is little doubt that swimming, and indeed the entire sports industry, will play an enormous part in restoring a sense of connection, purpose and help to play a strong part in restoring confidence as a nation.
 
Over the past few weeks I have been working closely with other sports, Sport Australia, AIS and the AOC to continue to advocate for sport in the ‘big picture’ and create a clear picture of understanding for Federal Government on the funding landscape for sport, and now the impact of COVID-19 on our communities. We will update on any key outcomes that directly impact our sport. The Federal Government has also recently launched the COVIDSafe App to help our communities stay safe and track the spread of COVID-19. You can find out more information about the app at www.health.gov.au. This is one way that the government is trying to assist communities get back to normal as quickly as possible.
 
Swim Central, the technology platform for our sport, has been identified by the Swimming Australia Board as a national “mission critical” priority at this unique time. As such, even though we currently have a challenging situation of some staffing adjustments and reductions across Swimming Australia due to COVID-19, we will continue to focus on our commitment to appropriately resource and develop Swim Central to have it in the most improved state possible once we are all back in the pool.
 
Having dealt with the heartbreak of a postponed Tokyo 2020 Olympics and Paralympics, our Dolphins are now firmly looking ahead to prepare for 2021. Pleasingly our elite teams in South Australia have been allowed access to pool facilities under strict conditions and we are hopeful that other states will soon come back online to continue their programs. You will see more of our Dolphins across our digital channels as they take you inside how they are staying connected to swimming and keeping focused, fit and looking after their wellbeing during this time. You may have recently seen the takeovers on our Dolphins Instagram channel and the messages of support from Cate and Bronte Campbell to those who would have competed in the 2020 Hancock Prospecting Australian Age  Swimming Championships. 

 

 

 

Clearly our sport has been impacted by this pandemic and we welcome the recent National Cabinet decision to endorse national principles for the resumption of sport and recreation activities, providing a pathway for a safer return to sport (see here). We look forward to seeing a safe return to our sport and we will provide updates as appropriate. In the meantime, we urge you all to stay connected to your club, coaches, support staff, teams and of course connected to swimming.
 
Please stay safe and know that we will be back in the water soon enough.

 


Yours Sincerely,

Leigh Russell, CEO

Swimming NSW will be once again running the Lane Ropes to Leadership Camp in 2019.

 

 

When: Saturday 14th September to Sunday 15th September 2019

Where: Wesley Vision Valley- Arcadia (about 1 hour north of Sydney) https://www.wesleymission.org.au/find-a-service/venues-and-catering/wesley-vision-valley/

Who: Swimming NSW members aged between 14 (or turning 14 in 2019) and 17

 

We are seeking applications from swimmers in your clubs and areas who aspire to become leaders and influencers in our sport. The candidate/s do not have to be the club captains or the best swimmers. We want to give opportunities for members who show qualities outside of the pool and who may want to be involved in swimming beyond competition or representative pathways.

 

The 2019 Lane Ropes to Leadership Camp is a great development opportunity for the future leaders of swimming. Like any sport, swimming would benefit from fresh ideas and innovation that our young members can provide. The next ‘big idea’ that could change the face of swimming could arise from one someone from your club.

 

The 2019 Lane Ropes to Leadership Camp will provide the selected candidates training and experiences in leadership, team building and more. Following the camp, an exclusive group will be selected to our influential Youth Advisory Panel and give a voice and perspective on how to improve swimming for young people in NSW.

 

How can your members apply to be part of the 2019 Lane Ropes to Leadership Camp?

Your members can apply by filling out the online applications form found here: 

https://docs.google.com/forms/d/e/1FAIpQLSd35Cl5zzKTiGNUT5uYz6SdmRUsIteyZNge5qBTXzdaTims9A/viewform

 

Applications close: 5pm on Sunday 1st September

 

There is no limit to how many members from each can apply and we encourage applications from all clubs and areas across NSW and ACT. From the applications we will only be selecting a maximum of 50 candidates to attend the camp.

 

Costs: There will be a levy (b/w $100-$150) for each successful applicant. We would be relying on the successful applicant’s club and/or area to assist their member with the levy and potential travel costs associated. We would encourage clubs and areas to see the costs as an investment. If one of your members get selected, they would be provided with a raft of skills and training that they can implement at a local level to improve outcomes for your club, area and community.

 

Swimming NSW can also provide some suggestions for fundraising and potential grant opportunities to help with the costs of getting your members to this camp.

 

We will also be having a Youth Advisory Panel/Lane Ropes to Leadership Camp Information Booth set up next to the merchandise tent at this weekend’s Senior State Short Course Championship. If you have any members or parents who want to speak to one of our current Youth Advisory Panel about the camp or what they panel do, please send them up for a chat between races. 

 

If you or any of your members have any questions regarding the 2019 Lane Ropes to Leadership Camp please contact: vinh.tran@nsw.swimming.org.au
