A message from Masters Swimming Australia to all our members
Update on the continuing impact of COVID-19
With the increasing concerns arising from the spread of COVID-19, the National Board of Management of Masters Swimming Australia are diligently working together to stay across the latest information at hand.
Our primary focus is to protect the health and safety of our members, coaches, technical officials, volunteers and staff. With the ongoing closure of pools across Australia to prevent the spread of the virus, it is becoming increasingly more difficult for our people to manage social distancing and maintain good hygiene while in group training.
While the sport of swimming is the livelihood of Masters Swimming Australia, the organisation strongly discourages Clubs from organising ongoing group training for its members until further notice. We have a responsibility to the community and each other to work together to help stop the spread of COVID-19.
Masters Swimming Australia will be continuing to provide updates regarding COVID-19 and information in relation to what you can do when you’re not swimming!
Our staff will be working from home at intermittent times. If you can’t reach us on the phone, please email us directly or contact firstname.lastname@example.org until further notice.
Gerry Tucker (National President) and Sarah Pisterman (General Manager).
on behalf of the National Board of Management.
