COVID-19, Sports

Nippers and Youth Championships

Friday, 13 March 2020

Earlier today, the Australian Government and health authorities issued updated information regarding COVID-19, advising all non-essential public gatherings of more than 500 people be cancelled in the interests of safety.

This recommendation will come into effect from Monday, 16 March.

In line with this directive, SLSQ has made the unfortunate, yet necessary, decision to cancel the 2020 Queensland Youth, Masters, and Open Surf Life Saving Championships (scheduled for March 20-22 and March 27-29).

While this weekend’s Nippers activities fall outside of this directive, we are urging all members to exercise care and caution to minimise the risk of infection.

Please note that all clubs must comply with any and all advice from government and health authorities, in the event official recommendations change over the next 24-48 hours.
