NST Shrimp 3rd October Gala Important Up-date
Our popular Shrimp gala for swimmers aged 8 to 12 will be held at Sunderland Aquatics Centre as a 25m competition.
After consultation with Sunderland Aquatic Centre, our maximum capacity within the pool hall is currently 344, this includes swimmers, spectators, coaches, officials and lifeguards. This is an indoor venue and is a hot humid environment and Sunderland Aquatic Centre Management wish to ensure the safety of all participants and spectators in reducing the risk of spread of covid19.
In order to manage the numbers at each session and ensure everyone has an opportunity to both swim and spectate in a safe environment and remain within the Aquatic Centre pool hall limits, we have amended the programme to be:
SESSION 1 - MORNING SESSION - GIRLS 8 - 10 YEARS AND BOYS 8 - 9 YEARS
SESSION 2 - AFTERNOON SESSION - GIRLS 11 - 12 YEARS AND BOYS 10-12 YEARS
An amended schedule of events can be found below:
Sunderland Aquatic Centre have requested that we send out the following message to all swimmers, spectators, officials and coaches.
"Everyone Active would like to encourage all visitors to wear face coverings in our facility when not taking part in an activity and to check into our centre via the Government QR code posters situated at our front entrance and throughout the building"
