All swimmers aged 12 and over MUST wear a face covering when entering the facility, walking to poolside and when leaving. Hand sanitizer is available and should be used on entry and exit.
All swimmers will be required to book into their training session in advance – see section below on website/booking
COVID Liaison Officers will be situated at the drop off point both at the start and end of the training sessions. Swimmers MUST be checked in and out so please remind your swimmers to look out for the COVID officers.
If possible can your swimmer attend training sessions wearing Club Kit – Jumpers/T-shirts. This will help facility staff identify who are club swimmers against general members of the public.
Swimmers must follow the arrows/markings on the floor when making their way to poolside and come “beach ready” (costumes/trunks on under their clothes).
They will NOT be allowed to access the changing rooms on entry-instead they will make their way to the far side of the pool area – where we normally sit at home meets, undress there and leave their bags and belongings in this area – coaches will be poolside to keep them right.
There is a one way system around the pool and all areas of the facility and the swimmers must make sure that they follow it at all times.
There will be no water fountains in use, therefore swimmers MUST come prepared to train and bring their own filled water bottle.
There will be no sharing of any equipment between swimmers or from the leisure centre so again swimmers must make sure that they have sufficient equipment (and possibly spares i.e. goggles/caps) for their sessions.
At the end of their training session swimmers will be expected to dry off, dress-there will be an area marked out for swimmers to get changed after sessions-coaches/COVID Officers will help direct the swimmers and leave the facility as squirm LG as possible-again using the one way system (exiting out of the facility by the outdoor pool) where they will be checked out by the COVID Liaison Officer and collected from the pick up/drop off area.
It is extremely important that your swimmer understands that they must get dressed as quickly as possible. There will be NO hanging around in the shower/changing area at any time.
Spectators are currently NOT allowed at training sessions.
Please watch the video below along with your swimmer and if there are any questions don’t hesitate to get in touch.
