Outlining its activities, ASCTA Chief Executive, Brendon Ward advises “we have been lobbying and communicating with Federal and State Ministers in a variety of portfolios including health, education, sport, small business and treasury.

“We have also communicated and lobbied local representatives to make sure we are able to open at an appropriate time (and have) worked vigorously to ensure we did not get lumped into stages that would not allow pools and swim schools to reopen.

“Based on available information, we believe it is time to share the steps we recommend to safely open.

“This best practice document and resources are shared as a guideline only (as) we recognise that individual situations will be different and swim schools do not have to open if they are not ready or do not feel comfortable to open or it is not financially viable.”
