General Information – UPDATED
See the SMNW Website for the full meet program & updated timeline.
Both Saturday 11th & Sunday 12th: Main door entry will open from 7am, warm up from 7:30am, races start at 8:30am.
Parking: Flat rate for the day – make sure you collect a voucher from the front desk.
Seating @ SOPAC: Hornsby traditionally sit in the green seats on the far side – across the bridge. Look out for our club shirts. If you’re new to SOPAC, just a word of warning, it’s either melting or freezing in the stands. There’s not much in-between!
Food & beverages: All kiosks will be open at SOPAC & the management have stated that no-one is permitted to bring in takeaway coffee from outside. You will apparently be asked to bin it, if seen by centre staff on entry.
Club Uniform: Please ensure that you wear your Hornsby Swim Club swim hat and club shirt (if you have one). If you don’t have a swim cap, Coach Matt will have a couple of spares which you can borrow for your race. We are currently in the process of ordering more caps which will be available to purchase in the new season. Contact HornsbyRaceSec@gmail.com if you wish to purchase a club shirt for this weekend.
Most important: Only swimmers and authorised persons will be permitted on the pool deck, including the marshalling and changing room areas. If you’re not on the SMNW list of people authorised to be on pool deck, you’ll be asked to leave.
RELAYS: Congratulations to all of our swimmers who have been selected to swim on a relay team! To see if you’ve been selected, have a look at our separate news post. Please don’t forget to let Coach Matt know as early as possible, if anything happens & you can’t make your race.
