Everything you need to know for the 2020/2021 Goolwa Surf Lifesaving season is here! Keep up to date with all our news, events and social get togethers. We also have the Surf Lifesaving SA calendar here as well. Make sure you follow us on Facebook where we post photos and regular updates.
The 2020-2021 season is fast approaching and I am aware that you will be requiring some direction on COVID-related practices. We are
currently devising a matrix that will answer specific questions respective to each department, i.e. “Will temperature testing be required during training / carnivals / patrols”. I will endeavour to have the matrix complete and placed upon the SLSSA website
by the 8th of October, along with links to guiding documents, however, the information / links provided within this email will form the majority of the answers to those questions within the matrix.
With COVID-19 restrictions being ever-evolving, I have made a conscious effort to ensure that the timing of this email balances the relevance
and accuracy of the information, with allowing sufficient time for you to plan your activities. With a little under two weeks to go, I am confident that the information contained within this email will remain relevant for the start of the season and, with
minimal change to our practices, should allow sufficient time for implementation.
Nationally, all the state representatives have met several times to discuss this matter, together with national bodies such as the Medical
Advisory Group. As a result, it was agreed that although there may be some items for nation-wide adoption, predominantly each state will operate according to the level of risk posed by COVID-19 in their area and the regulations set by their respective state governments.
As we are fortunate that South Australia is not currently experiencing community transmissions of the virus, SLSSA clubs should approach
the patrolling season in the usual way, albeit with some extra precautions and considerations. Below are some recurring questions that the Lifesaving department have received. By providing answers to these questions, along with links to guiding state government
and SLSA documents, I believe that you will be armed with the necessary information to facilitate safe and effective patrol operations on the 10th of October.
Can I take this opportunity to thank you for your patience in awaiting this information, and ask that we all work together to ensure that our members stay safe.
Come and enjoy a sausage sizzle on Sundays in front of the clubhouse. Enjoy the atmosphere and maybe catch a wave or two first!
Our fantastic new clubhouse is now open this season! Take in some of the best views on the South Coast and have a cold drink and a bite to eat, 2pm-6pm Saturdays and Sundays.
