Swim England have today released guidance to all pool users, including swimming clubs like ours about how we will be able to facilitate a return to swimming. What we know is that swimming will look very different initially and we need to be able to prepare for this.
Swim England say "The guidance includes robust recommendations for operators, casual swimmers, lane swimming, family-fun sessions, club activity, teachers and those attending swimming lessons."
Our committee and coaching team will now start to assess and plan our return to the water and this will include liaison with our pool providers, as well as assessing how many swimmers can return to the water at any one time, in order to keep everyone safe. We will publish further information once we have had the opportunity to discuss the implications fully.
