Dear AYC Players/Parents,

The following information is important to you as WPSA prepares for the 2021 AYC – Brisbane in April 2021. Getting teams organised and ready continues to be ‘challenge’ for participants/parents/coaches/officials as well as WPSA.

Rising Stars Pty Ltd (a company that specialises in sports team travel) is coordinating the group bookings for travel/accommodation and transport.

Several parents are accompanying participants and have contacted WPSA for flight and additional details.

NOTE: WPA will make final Confirmation of AYC 2021 on 15th March. WPSA will then be required to pay deposits/full fares. Any arrangements made by individuals will be at their own risk.

UNIFORMS:

Due to the late confirmation of Teams, we have ‘missed’ the deadline to order uniforms through Delfina!

HOWEVER, WPSA has ordered swimwear (selection of sizes-thanks Paul!) and has uncovered a treasure trove of swimwear/uniforms in the SAALC storeroom. If you do not have last year’s swimwear/uniform or if the clothing does not fit, there might be an option. If you have spare clothing from last year…WPSA is interested! More on sizes etc shortly…

FINANCES:

WPSA will be invoicing participants shortly. Invoice will be estimate of flights/accommodation at this point. Additional costs will be invoiced later when the final costs are known. If you have any queries about the invoice, please do not hesitate to contact WPSA (Anna [email protected])

INTERSTATE COVID PROCEDURES

Travel requirements (including Border Declaration Passes) are on State Government websites including www.qld.gov.au & www.covid-19.sa.gov.au At this point in time (Mon 8th March 2021) there do not appear to be any requirements for border declaration passes or other documentation. This can change with only hours’ notice being given by State Governments.

It is the responsibility of individual participants to have the correct documentation should it be required.

PHOTO ID

Participants may require photo ID for flights. Photo ID in the form of passport, driver’s license or student ID should suffice.

QUERIES

Please contact me if you have any initial queries [email protected]
