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 venue 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 – 1 per swimmer); 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.
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.
If you’re quick, Drummoyne Swim Centre is offering a 10% discount off all season passes and multi visit swim passes purchased between Tuesday 1st September and Sunday 6th September!
Additionally, if you had swim passes last season Drummoyne Swimming Centre is offering the following compensation as a result of the pool closing early last season due to COVID-19:
Any remaining credits on Multi Visit Passes will be valid for an additional 40 days from the original expiry date.
Season Pass holders will have the unused portion last season’s purchase applied as a credit against purchases of Season Passes or Multi-Visit Passes for this season.
Club Membership Registration
Swimming NSW is currently updating its Swim Central membership registration site and we expect that registrations will be open to members from late September.
Club fees will remain the same as last season. Further information and registration details will be provided in due course.
As part of our COVID-Safe plan it is essential that members promptly register or renew their membership with the Club once registrations open.
2019-20 Trophy Award Presentation
Unfortunately, we were unable to hold the End-of-Season Trophy Award Presentation for 2019-20 due to COVID-19 restrictions on social gatherings.
As restrictions on award presentations are still in place, we are currently assessing options for announcing and presenting the awards to trophy winners last year. Any suggestions for recognising these achievements in a COVID-Safe way will be gratefully appreciated.
Please contact Club President Adrian Bell on 0424 561831 or email firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any questions relating to the start of the season and our COVID-Safe plans.
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.
Also, if you are interested in helping out with the running of the Club or in a committee position please contact Tim about this.
By now we would normally have held the club’s awards presentation night for the 2019/20 season. However, given the present situation we have decided to remove any uncertainty surrounding large gatherings and defer the award of trophies to the beginning of the 2020/21 season, expected to commence in October 2020. We will provide more details in due course.
Drummoyne Swimming Club is on the hunt for new sponsors for the upcoming season and we figure the best place to start is in our own backyard swimming pool (so to speak). We are calling out for you – swimmers and parents – to help us find club sponsors. Sponsorship plays a key role in keeping registration fees as low as possible and helps us pay for ever increasing costs.
We are certainly living in interesting and uncertain economic times but some businesses have been very successful during the COVID-19 crisis and others may be looking to get a bit of community exposure to help get themselves going again.
You may have your own business or know of one that could get a boost by linking with our well-regarded community-based club. You may work for a large corporate that might be keen to associate with us. If so, we’re keen to see what we can do.

We’ve sought to produce a document that spells out the benefits of becoming a club sponsor. Please take a look and get back to us if you think you can help or know someone who might be interested. We’re also open to other sponsorship ideas and options so please feel free to put forward any other ideas you have.
If you are interested in becoming a sponsor for 2020/21 or know someone who is, please contact Adrian Bell on 0424 561 831 or email@example.com.
Don’t forget to support our current sponsors…

Drummoyne Swimming Club is extremely fortunate to have the generous support of the local business community, including the sponsors listed below.
Now, more than ever, it’s time for us to reciprocate their generosity by supporting their businesses through the challenging economic times ahead of us all.

Thank you again to all of our sponsors for your kind support and we hope to partner again with you next season.
