Return to training in QLD and WA (WAZA) Zones

I am pleased to advise that QLD's State Government, and its health authorities have approved the AOCRA QLD State Centre’s Aquatic Industry Sport Sector Plan effective 5 June 2020. AOCRA has also endorsed it so that insurance through AJ Gallagher covers sanctioned training sessions during Stage 2.

AOCRA QLD State Centre will issue a notification to Queensland Zones and Clubs today in terms of completing the required steps to ensure a smooth transition back to full training.

I would like to acknowledge the significant contribution of the AOCRA Queensland State Centre Committee, led by Tracy Watson, President, who have lobbied aggressively over the past few weeks to secure this exemption from the 1.5m rule. Thank you to Tracey and her team on the QLD State Centre committee.

I am also pleased to advise Phase 3 restrictions commence tomorrow, June 6th in Western Australia. WAZA will issue a communication to Clubs in terms of required steps to ensure a smooth transition back to full training (including OC6).

We are not yet in position to commence sanctioned events, however the Zones will be engaging with AOCRA in the next few weeks on how and when this will occur.

If you have any questions, please contact your Zone.

Katherine Cole

President, AOCRA
