Official Season Launch this Saturday

Last week was a wonderful start to the racing for season. After finishing early last season it was good to be back in the water. We got to test out the new COVID-compliant marshalling arrangements and some new timers (purchased with the assistance of a Canada Bay Club grant). Thanks to everyone who came along and for complying with the new rules.

Come down for a Free Trial!

We’re still warming up and it’s not too late to join, so please spread the word to family and friends about the best place to spend Saturday mornings in Sydney!

New members are invited to a FREE TRIAL on Saturday mornings (just need to pay pool entry fees), so encourage them along.

Official Season launch

This week is the official season launch. We will be joined by Dr Fiona Martin MP the member for Reid.

To mark the occasion we will run a monster raffle:

  • 1st prize is a 3 month membership to Five Dock Leisure Centre
  • 2nd Prize is a $75 voucher for Salt Meats Cheese at Drummoyne
  • 3rd prize is a $60 voucher at Ribs & Burgers

COVID Safety

A friendly reminder that as a community sporting club, we must comply with NSW Government rules on COVID-19. All swimmers and spectators are required to comply with the Club’s COVID Safety Plan and Drummoyne Swimming Centre rules. In a nutshell our COVID-Safety Plan is:

Have fun, but… be safe and protect others! Arrive ready to swim; Register your attendance using Team App (swimmers and spectators); Get in, Swim, Get out; Follow social distancing rules; Sanitise and wash your hands; Minimise use of the amenities; Don’t share equipment, food or drinks and Go home when you’re done.

Find us on Team App

The new marshalling arrangements seemed to work efficiently and the hand sanitiser stations were well used. Feedback from pool management was that they were generally happy with the way we operated but that social distancing in the stands was a little lax at times and could be improved.

Could all members please be mindful of complying with the 1.5m social distancing requirements between family groups this weekend and moving forward.

The first race meet is this Saturday 3 October 2020.

The official season launch will be Saturday 10 October and will be attended by Dr Fiona Martin MP the federal member for Reid.

Team App

Find us on Team App

We’ll be using Team App again this year to register swimmers for races. All swimmers and spectators should sign-in in advance using the club’s Team App site before coming to swimming.

To join our Team App site, simply download Team App on your smartphone, search for Drummoyne Swimming Club and request to become a member. One of the administrators will accept your request. Once you’re activated head to Events to pre-register for the event you plan to attend – Saturday racing or a squad.

You can also access Team App via the web: www.teamapp.com.

Find us on Team App

If you can’t or don’t pre-register for Saturday racing please head to the club room window – head down the stairs. To minimise crowding there will be no access to the club room (except for race officials) while COVID-19 remains with us.

COVID Safety

As a community sport we must comply with NSW Government rules about COVID-19. All swimmers and spectators are required to comply with the club’s COVID Safety Plan and Drummoyne Swimming Centre rules. In a nutshell our COVID-Safety Plan is:

Have fun, but… be safe and protect others! Arrive ready to swim; Register your attendance using Team App (swimmers and spectators); Get in, Swim, Get out; Follow social distancing rules; Sanitise and wash your hands; Minimise use of the amenities; Don’t share equipment, food or drinks and Go home when you’re done.

The key takeout is that we need to maintain social distancing between family groups in the stand. Please be mindful of this.

The other main changes you will notice are:
– Entry to the club room is restricted to officials and communication is only via the window only. No congregating around the entrance to the room please.
– Marshalling for upcoming races will be in the first few rows of the stands – not behind the blocks.

Copies of the club’s COVID Safety Plan and the Venue Plan are loaded on the Documents section of Team App for your reference.

Please don’t come to swimming if you’re sick or if you’ve been to a designated hot spot within the timelines shown in the NSW Govt. guidelines.
