Information for Attendees - 2020 McDonald's Queensland Championships

09 November 2020

Please find below important Information for Attendees for the 2020 McDonald's Queensland Championships. Access other event information via the event page.

Given the size and nature of this event, there are considerable differences to recent events hosted by Swimming Queensland. Specifically, there are differences between the Relays Day and Days 2-7.

As you can appreciate, this event has added complexities and further details will be communicated as soon as they are finalised. Club/Region administrators have been emailed this information with more detail.

We understand that many aspects of adjusting our sport to be COVID-Safe can be overwhelming and/or frustrating. We’re working hard to ensure we comply with the restrictions in order to continue to run events for our swimmers to enjoy racing and implement and execute training effects, race skills and race plans.

If you have questions or require any further clarification please get in touch with us in the office via email (admin.qld@swimming.org.au).

  • Relays Day
  • The below information is specific to the 2020 McDonald’s Queensland Championships – Relays Day. All nominations for Relays Day are managed and actioned by clubs and regions. Therefore, please direct any questions related to your swimmer's eligibility to participate to your Club/Region.

     

    SESSIONS

    Thanks to the recent Queensland Health announcement, we are able to streamline RMHC Relays Day. We are now able to utilise 100% of the Western grandstand for spectators, removing the need to split the program into sessions with a 45 minute break.

    A timeline will be released closer to the event, along with further details for club/region managers.

     

    SPECTATOR CAPACITY & TICKETING

    Spectator tickets will be availableat a cost of $7 (plus fees) for the day. As spectators will be ticketed to individual seats, we are able to use 100% capacity of the Western grandstand; with over 2000 tickets available. Based on attendance of previous years, tickets are unlikely to sell out.

    A small number of accessible seats are available for those unable to safely navigate the stairs and priority will be given accordingly. To request an accessible seat, please complete this online request form.

    Ticket sale date is yet to be finalised, but will be updated here and via our social media when finalised. 

    There is still a requirement to separate spectators from areas in use by Active Participants (i.e. pool deck and Eastern grandstand). This means that on the day, swimmers, coaches and club/region managers are not permitted to spectate in the Western grandstand. 

     

    COACH & CLUB/REGION MANAGER ALLOCATIONS

    Swimming Queensland will be allocating coach and club/region manager passes after nominations have closed, based on a ratio of swimmers nominated. Clubs/Regions will be notified of their allocation and provided their unique access codes and will be responsible for assigning these. 

    We recognise that some swimmers may require additional parental assistance / supervision. Where possible, this should be accommodated within your Club/Region’s club manager allocation. Where this is unachievable, club/region administrators can advise us of the additional support person tickets needed on behalf of those parents (name, mobile, email, which session/s they require). These tickets will not allow pool deck access (unless required for multi-class swimmers). These tickets are not limitless, so please only use them where absolutely necessary.

    Club/region manager and support person tickets will be $7 (plus fees) while coaches are free. 

    Clubs may interchange club managers throughout the day via a reallocation process conducted at the entry point using EVA Check-in.

    Each club/region group (swimmers, club managers, support persons and coaches) will be allocated to a designated section in the Eastern grandstand. Some clubs will also have access to space around the outdoor pool deck to setup marquees. 

    Please note, the above details relate only to the 2020 McDonald’s Queensland Championships – Relays Day. For information relating to Days 2-7 of this event, please refer to the relevant section of this page.
