SGAC is open


We are so pleased to be reopening our doors and welcoming you back to swimming & gymnastics classes!

As we reopen our doors, we must be reminded there will be changes to the way our centre once operated. Effective 19 August, it is a requirement when entering Sydney Gymnastic & Aquatic Centre to electronically sign in via with a membership card. This ensures accurate electronic records are kept for contact tracing and capacity restrictions, as well as creating a seamless transition entry to your child’s class or spectator area. By entering the facility, you declare that you and any minors in your care are free from any symptoms of COVID-19. It is also a requirement, in line with social distancing measures, that one parent/caregiver be allowed into the facility with your swimmer(s)/gymnast(s).

Effective 26 September, there will be a change to SGAC’s conditions of entry.

In line with the change to the Public Health Order and announcements made from NSW Office of Sport and Gymnastics NSW, we are pleased to advise that our conditions of entry will now allow for more than one parent/guardian to attend the facility whilst your children participate in Swimming and Gymnastics activities. This change is subject to SGAC adhering to all other elements of our COVID safe plan which includes the 500-person limit for community sport activities (including participants, officials and spectators) and/or adhering to the one person per 4m2 rule in indoor spaces.

We ask that only essential spectators attend the facility to assist with us adhering to our 500-person limit. 

This ‘new normal’ will be an adjustment for all and we anticipate we will continue to experience changes as further information is released by the Commonwealth and NSW Governments, as well as Royal Life Saving NSW & Gymnastics Australia/ NSW. However, rest assured the team at SGAC are as committed as ever to ensuring we deliver a quality Learn to Swim & Gymnastics program to your child.

Below are a set of guidelines that will be in place until further notice. It is important you familiarise yourself with these new standards. We all play a role. We are all in this together.




  • Only come to your classes if you and your child are well
  • Changerooms are now open for your convenience. However, West HQ encourages swimmers to arrive ready for lessons
  • Staff training implemented
  • No casual swimming
  • Cleaning of all Learn to Swim & Gymnastic equipment after each class
  • Café running on reduced menu
