Dear GSA Families,
Thank you for your support & encouragement over the past 2 weeks. We are extremely grateful to be back up and running again.
As you would now be aware, the Queensland Government has moved Stage 2 restrictions forward. To ensure we get things right and continue to keep you and your family safe we will be instigating our Stage 2 plan from Monday 8th June. We hope this remains in effect until Friday 10th July allowing for 5 strong weeks of restricted service before Stage 3 (Term 3) commences.
Please find below relevant information for each service area, scroll to the bottom to find out more. Some services may require you to rebook sessions, if this is the case please follow the links provided
We ask all families to continue to practice the following COVID-SAFE requirements:
- Only attend sessions if you are registered & confirmed to attend
- Follow signage & direction of staff at all times
- Social distancing will apply at all times
- Parents must remain outside of the centre and either drop & go or remain in their vehicles
- Reception areas will continue to operate on reduced hours. (Emails will continue to be our preferred communication method)
- The canteen will be open daily 7:00am-9:00am & 3:00pm-5:00pm. Coffee & toasties will be available for purchase from the cafe window only. Please make your purchase and move on as quickly as possible to avoid congestion.
- Cashless payments will be our preferred payment option
- Restrictions will apply to numbers per area as well as number in change rooms at any one time
- Equipment must not be shared and should be taken off site after each session.
We appreciate your patience and understanding through this time, as we continue to adjust to our new processes and operations
Based on the recent government announcements regarding safe pool operations we will be running sessions with no more than 2 swimmers per lane. This will allow 16 swimmers within the 25m Pool & 8 swimmers within the LTS Pool each session. The coaching team will ensure all swimmers get exposed to both pools each week to allow for a further refining of skills, technique and speed.
We ask you complete the link below to register your child’s interest for the next 5 weeks. It is recommended that swimmers attend 3-5 sessions per week and not exceed 5 sessions per week. Each session will be $6.00 per swim and invoiced at the end of Stage 2 (13th July).
All invoices for the past 2 weeks (Stage 1) will be sent out Monday 8th June. Payment can be made via Electronic Fund Transfer, provisions will be in place for those wishing to pay with Credit Card over the phone.
Learn to Swim Update
We plan to have Learn to Swim lessons back up and running by Term 3 (13th July). The team will be in contact over the coming weeks to start the booking process. All enrolments made for Term 3 can expect to receive a 2 weeks free to show our appreciation for recommencing. This will also cover any loss associated to the centre’s unexpected closure due to Covid back in March.
If you are finding your kids have that extra energy through this time it might be a good idea to put them into Gym, Tennis or Football until Learn to Swim can recommence. Please contact the centre to find out more.

All adult services have been limited at this stage to ensure enhanced protections are in place based on government guidelines and advice. Adult gym classes are running Monday, Wednesday & Friday 8:00am – 9:00am. As of Monday 8th June we will extend these gym classes to operate Tuesday & Thursday 5:30pm – 6:30pm as well.

We are currently working on a system to enable general gym access through Stage 2 and will be in contact over the coming weeks with adult members about their options.
Full adult memberships, classes & adult swim squads are expected to recommence Monday 13th July. Any upfront members will have 3 months added to their accounts due to our closure through Covid. Direct Debit members can expect their regular billing cycles to recommence the week of 13th July unless the centre is notified in writing that you do not wish this to occur.
