WATER PRACTICE

Water practice will be organised by distance from the venue. For example, the closest clubs – Sydney Emeralds will be scheduled first thing in the morning, and the furthest clubs ie. international clubs will be scheduled at the end of day. This is meant to allow for more travel time for those that travel from further distances.

Please provide any specific requests with your preliminary registration information.

OTHER

The Sydney Royal Easter show is scheduled during the competition in the Sydney Olympic Park. We recommend clubs & team organise a visit to the Royal Easter Show. It also means the area will be busy. Please leave extra time to travel to and from the aquatic centre.

Clubs are requested to email a copy of their logo to synchro.nsw@gmail.com by March 2019 so that it can be included in the printed program.

Clubs are also invited to bring their banners to display at the event. They will need to be handed in at the Team Managers meeting so that their display can be arranged in compliance with the strict requirements of SOPAC.
