To our master members,
Thank you again for your support in 2020, especially in this very challenging year. The MSA Board, National Office, National Committees, member Branches, coaches, clubs, members and volunteers have been working tirelessly this year to get ahead from the effects of Covid-19. We thank you all!
In 2021, we will continue working hard to deliver more benefits to our member organisation. These are some of our projects we have been working on and cannot wait to share with you next year:
We will launch a secure area for our members, coaches, technical officials and administrators with educational resources to help improve swimming technique, fitness programs, coaching webinars, club development content, health and nutrition advice and much more.
Improved access for coach accreditation
We are working collaboratively to deliver a National Online Coach Course Workshop that will allow more coaches to upskill and refresh their qualifications as well as reach those in regional areas.
Events & Competition
The Masters Swimming Australia Swim League is scheduled for the 3rd and 4th of September at MSAC in Melbourne. More details to come. The 2021 National Swim Series and Postal Swims has been confirmed for 2021 - see below.
Improved IT and web services
MSA has contracted additional IT and Web services to assist with Organisational needs to deliver a faster and more efficient product to members
Mental Health Month scheduled for May will give members the chance to swim and raise money for a chosen mental health organisation. More details to come.
Increased connection & communication
The Board is meeting monthly and national committees more regularly to improve communication and deliver more benefits to our members
Policies and Guidelines
Staff from the National Office are currently still working remotely and MSA will continue in the New Year to review our policies and guidelines to be COVID Safe.
Next year, we will commence a co-sharing office arrangement with Swimming Australia. We are all looking forward to more ways to support one another and share resources where possible for the good of our sport.
We wish everyone a wonderful Christmas and holiday break. The National Office will be shut from Thursday 24 of December and will re-open Monday 4th January 2021 - please contact by email.
We will see you in 2021.
