COVID-19 Safety Plan

The Club’s COVID Safety Plan has been published to our website here.

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

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.

For more information, please read the Club’s COVID Safety Plan.

Introducing your new Club Committee

Congratulations to Adrian Bell on being voted in as our new Club President at the 2020 AGM.

Adrian has been actively involved with the Club for the last three years, including attracting some valuable new sponsors to the Club and has already dived head first into his new role, to oversee the ‘COVID-safe’ reopening of the Club this season.

We also welcome some new names to the Club Committee, including Davina Kite and Jodie Van Loo, who will be assisting Shellee Ossen in organising this year’s social events, which will present them with some unique challenges in the current environment!

A big thank you to our outgoing President Tim Doolan, who has handed over the reins to Adrian after four years in the role. In that time, Tim has seen the Club grow from strength-to-strength with increased membership and the introduction of Winter Swim Club, Junior Technicians and new diving blocks amongst other initiatives. Tim will be staying on the Committee to ensure a smooth handover to Adrian.

Thank you also to outgoing committee members Kate Romaniuk, Annette Jamieson and Renee Carroll who also made huge contributions to the successful running of the Club last season, including organising social events, trophies and weekly newsletters.

Winter Swim Club is back!

Some great news for our fitness in a challenging environment!

NSW Health has permitted Drummoyne Swimming Club to resume its Winter Swim Club programme, provided that it maintains strong social-isolation rules.

As all public swimming pools are currently closed, swimming is restricted to large mud puddles in otherwise unused rain-soaked park land.

All puddles will need to be at least 4 meters apart and race distances will be confined to 1.5m a lap.

The winner of the 4 x 1.5m long distance event will be presented with the Geribo Mud Chocolate Cup.

All swimmers will be required to liberally apply full-body sanitiser before each race. We have been kindly donated a large supply of toilet paper to clean up after the meet.

Meets will commence in May once the curve has started to flatten, as it would be foolhardy to start sooner.

We look forward to seeing you there. For all enquiries, please contact Duncan Tryon via email at racesecretary@drummoyneswimclub.com.au
