Important Announcement: SWA SunSmart Junior Short Course Championships
Venues West have recently updated their Operational Plans at HBF Stadium and have limited the number of people allowed in the grandstand seating area of the indoor pool to 600 people, whilst WA are in Stage 4 of the COVID-19 Roadmap. This decision has been made to ensure that everyone in the grandstand can have 2m2 between them.
Unfortunately, this has a direct impact on the logistics of the SWA SunSmart Junior Short Course Championships. As we are expecting approximately 500 competitors, we are unable to run the meet as per normal with this restriction in place, and Swimming WA have made the difficult decision to limit spectators to 1 parent/guardian per family of swimmers (ie 2 siblings, 1 parent).
All swimmers at the Junior Short Course Championships will have access to the grandstands and will count towards the 600-person capacity, and children 9-11 years of age at HBF Stadium need to be accompanied by a parent/guardian.
Swimming WA is working closely with Venues West to ensure that there is enough seating for parents and swimmers around the concourse at the scoreboard end of the 50m indoor pool, for when the 600-capacity limit is reached in the grandstand.
Further information regarding the meet will be released next week once entries close.
