UPDATED: 30 June 2020

Visiting your local gym or swimming pool will be a little different to what you're used to with a number changes  in place to protect you, your family and our staff as we continue to adapt to a new way of living.

The major difference you'll find at all our facilities relates to restrictions on total patronage during your visit and the reduction in our regular programming.

To meet the changes set by the State and Federal Government, our staff will be working to ensure no more than 100 patrons are occupying an indoor facility at any one time, as well as creating an environment that will allow you to move about the facility whilst keeping 1.5 metres from your fellow members and patrons.

In addition, Shoalhaven Swim Sport Fitness staff will be scheduling additional cleaning shifts, supplying adequate hand soap/sanitiser and implementing social distancing guidelines to allow you to play your part in a COVIDSafe Australia during your next visit.

You'll also notice that we'll be running modified versions of our regular programming at all Centres.


For our group fitness participants, it's important to note that each session on our Group Fitness Timetable will be capped and bookings by phone are now essential. We will be updating our Group Fitness timetable on our website in the coming days. Whilst the overall programming is limited throughout Stage 2 of Easing Restrictions, our online library consisting of 47 group fitness classes will remain available on Facebook to access any time.


Our popular Aqua programs will also return on Monday, 22 June 2020 in a limited capacity. Bookings are essential. Stay tuned to our Facebook pages throughout the week, check-in to our online Group Fitness Timetable and/or contact your local Centre for more information.


To reintroduce our squad members, the COVID-19 Relaunch Program will continue from Monday, 15 June 2020 at Nowra Aquatic Park, and subsequent programs will be launched at Bay & Basin Leisure Centre, Sussex Inlet Aquatic Centre and Ulladulla Leisure Centre with between 6-8 participants in each session. We encourage you to contact your nearest facility for more information on availability and session times.


We're excited to announce that our popular Squad Intensives program is returning for the July School Holidays.

Numbers for this program will be strictly limited in order to adhere to the latest advice on Social Distancing from the State and Federal Government, so we encourage you to contact us on Wednesday, 1 July when enrolments open to ensure you secure your place/s.


Week 1: 6th – 10th July 2020
Week 2: 13th – 17th July 2020

Session Times:

Nowra Aquatic Park
Monday/Wednesday/Thursday, 6am – 7.30am

If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to get in contact and chat to our friendly team.


Our Learn to Swim teams are eager to get back in the water for Term 3, and all current students and parents will be contacted directly in the lead up as more information is received from the State and Federal Government around specific operational restrictions for this type of programming.


The Shoalhaven Indoor Sports Centre is open for casual play only. The team have also set up a fitness space with Spin Bikes and a range of functional fitness equipment so you can get back into your workout routine while the kids hit the courts!


All memberships (Term and Direct Direct) have now been re-activated ahead of the next Direct Debit payment due on 25 June 2020.

To reflect the limited access to our facilities & group fitness classes at this time, all 'Complete Fitness' & 'Complete Aqua' members will be debited at the reduced rate of the 'Fitness' & 'Aqua' memberships, and all term memberships will be granted a 2-week extension. You can read more about our Memberships tiers here: http://bit.ly/memberships-sssf

As restrictions are eased further, we will provide further updates at shoalhavenssf.com.au and memberships will revert back to ordinary payments.

If you are not comfortable returning to our facilities or you require changes to your current Membership, please contact us by Monday, 22 June 2020.


Stay tuned to our Facebook pages and website in the coming days for more announcements on changes to how our facilities will be operating, and please don't hesitate to contact your local Centre with any enquiries. 


  • Whilst our pools are open, we are restricted to 3 people per lane
