Under 13’s or 14’s undertaking their SRC are welcome to do their timed swim on one of these days. Under 6’s and 7’s are not required to attend preliminary evaluations.
For nippers wishing to attend carnivals or board training, there is also a competition evaluation that they will need to complete.
On the day:
In the current COVID-19 climate, to ensure that we adhere to the Council’s Covid plan and the government guidelines, things will look a little different when you arrive at the pool this year.
We are asking that you walk your nipper to the pool entrance and pay their entry fee.
We will meet you there, mark your child off and take them to complete their evaluation. Unfortunately, you will not be permitted to enter the pool area this year and will be asked to return to your car or wait outside the building.
Once your child has completed their evaluation, they will be escorted out of the pool and to the grassed area out the front, for your collection.
Please be assured that your children will be fully supervised and looked after whilst at their preliminary evaluation.
