Dear SAMS swimmer,

On behalf of WP Masters Swimming and Western Cape Aquatics, you are invited to:

37th SA Masters Swimming Championship from 10th to 13th March 2021 held at the Belville Swimming Pool and

SA Masters Open Water Swimming Championship on 14th March 2021 held at Elgin Country Lodge on the Palmiet River.

Currently Covid-19 regulations allows 500 people to attend or participate at an outdoor event. Based on the conditions closer to the time Swim South Africa (SSA) can give concessions for greater daily attendance.

By March 2021, it is anticipated that the threat of Covid-19 would have reduced substantially. However a Compliance Officer will be appointed. A Standard Operating Procedure (SOP) that is approved by Swim South Africa (SSA) will also be followed. Based on the SOP and list of participants, SSA have agreed to issue a compliance certificate for the events.

At present Covid-19 regulations do not allow for spectators, however your spouse or partner may attend as support staff. Kindly indicate on the National Registration Form the name of your spouse or partner who is planning to attend.

Alternatively if your Spouse or Partner is a qualified time keeper, they may attend as timekeepers.

  • Time keepers who assist with two to four sessions will receive a sponsored golf shirt.
  • Time keepers who assist with five or more sessions will receive two sponsored golf shirts.

    Men’s 400m Individual Medley is sponsored by Graham du Toit who wishes all well whilst taming this killer event!
