  3. VERY IMPORTANT: ALL SWIMMERS WHO WISH TO PARTICIPATE AT THE SASOL WINTER CHAMPS MUST BE REGISTERED WITH THE CLUB AND THE PROVINCE (LIMPOPO AQUATICS) FOR THE NEW SWIMMING SEASON (2017/2018) AT LEAST 2 WEEKS PRIOR TO THE GALA, in accordance with SSA rules.

    The Club will be making use of overnight accommodation at the Fakkel School Hostel (20 Jan Smuts Street, Sasolburg) for coaches. Parents and swimmers are also welcome to stay there (swimmers usually enjoy staying together in a group). We were able to negotiate for very reasonable tariffs for our group (please see underneath):

Bed with bedding = R140-00 per person per night
Bed without bedding = R120-00 per person per night
Breakfast = R 55-00 per person per day
Dinner = R 75-00 per person per day
(Total for bed, breakfast and dinner per person per night = R250 to R270)

The information that we have received is that the Fakkel School Hostel is very neat and tidy, and that the meals are very good. There are 52 beds available in 13 rooms (4 beds per room) on 2 different floors. There are communal bathrooms (1 bathroom per floor) with sufficient toilets, showers and baths. We will ensure that the one bathroom is allocated to women/girls and the other to the men/boys. Parents and children can share rooms, if required.
