Channel Island Championships Cancelled
Note from Jersey Amateur Swimming Association
You will be aware of the first Coronavirus cases now identified in both islands and ongoing preparedness from our island authorities to prevent a wider outbreak in our communities.
The decision was taken yesterday to cancel Jersey’s Swimarathon and I have now been advised by the Chief Medical Officer to cancel CI Champs later in the month. The pool environment is an ideal environment for transmission of viruses at the best of times and at this time of heightened concern it would not be responsible to introduce added risk to our swimmers, coaches, volunteers and spectators.
On behalf of JASA I’m sorry for any inconvenience this causes to swimmers season plans and the additional admin it will create for many of you. Please come back to me with thoughts on a re-arranged date for later in the year, most likely in the Autumn.
