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.

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.
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.
