COVID-19 (CORONAVIRUS) UPDATE

19th March 2020

To all our participants, carers and especially volunteers around Australia and New Zealand.

Everyone is going through restrictions in everyday life due to the Corona Virus and the DSA is no exception. As our two nations combat the dilemma, we too have had to cancel many events, therefore restricting our ability to put smiles on dials.

Our nations will eventually combat this hideous issue and we will come back even stronger in changing the lives of so many people. We may be closing down events for the foreseeable future until authorities tell us it is safe to carryout our impeccable programs.

Be assured that we are not going anywhere, only growing stronger, yet aware of the welfare of our supporters, being you and your friends. Our attempt to establish our nineteenth branch in Tasmania has been postponed until later this year, yet again we will put in the efforts to bring this amazing organisation to all Tasmanian’s with a disability wishing to have a go at surfing.

Please take care and look after yourselves, as we look forward to a new and even more exciting 2020-2021 season. Until then stay safe.

Yours sincerely

Gary Blaschke
DSAA National President

 

UPDATE 1 FEB 2021: Each DSA branch has made it’s own decision whether or not to run events during the 2020/2021 season based on current health guidelines and restrictions and also practicality. Please check your local branch for any updates.
