Good Afternoon Swimmers & Parents,

 

A noted in our last update, Swimming NSW has been monitoring the Weather conditions in the lead up to the SNSW Open Water Championships that will be held on the 20th & 21st December at the Sydney International Regatta Centre.

 

On Saturday 21st of December, the weather forecast is predicting a maximum temperature in excess of 45º Celsius. In light of this we have regretfully had to make a change to the schedule of events for that day. Please see below an updated schedule;

 

Saturday 21st of December

NSW BIO ISLAND JX OPEN WATER 2.5KM SWIMMING MEET (Non-Championship) – THIS EVENT HAS BEEN CANCELLED

8.30am – Men’s 13 – 18 Years & Open 5km

10am – Women’s 13 – 18 Years & Open 5km

 

Registration for all 5km events will commence at 7am on Saturday.

 

The event schedule for Friday 20th December at this stage remains unchanged. 

 

  • Swimming NSW will provide a refund to all competitors entered into the JX 2.5km swim. For the JX 2.5km Competitors, a refund will automatically be issued to the card used to make the purchase. If you do not receive this in the 7-10 working days, please let me know.

 

  • If you wish to withdraw from the 10km, 7.5km & 5km events, please email me ASAP with the swimmers details & I will advise of the refund process.

 

The following Air Quality & Temperature information still applies to our event;

Based on advice from the Australian Institute of Sport (https://ais.gov.au/position_statements#smoke_pollution_and_exercise) Swimming NSW has determined that if the Air Quality Index reaches a reading classified as Very Poor (at the closest measuring station to SIRC) we will cease the NSW Open Water Championships. The Air Quality Index is updated hourly and this will be monitored throughout the event.

 

Further, if the water temperature at the event reaches 31º Celsius we will cease the NSW Open Water Championships. The Water Temperature will also be monitored throughout the event.

 

The safety of our competitors, volunteers and spectators is our first priority at all time. If any competitor wishes to withdraw at this stage due to the forecasted conditions, a refund will be issued.

 

Depending on weather conditions and the timing of any cessation, Swimming NSW will, wherever possible, re-schedule events. However if this is not possible, events may be cancelled. In the event of a cancellation, a refund will be provided to all competitors.

 

We will keep our Competitors, Coaches, Volunteers and Spectators updated on event changes in the lead up to and during the event via email, social media and the Swimming NSW website.

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
