We are very pleased to be returning fully to our previous sessions and are looking forward to welcoming everyone back. Please can you ensure that if you have not already done so, the Health screening survey and Returning to training declaration are completed and brought to the pool with you on your return to your training sessions. I is very important that these forms are completed. Please note, a declaration is required for every swimmer, so if you have two or more children, a form will need to be completed for each one.
Please also read the club’s Covid-19 documents and policies.
As the Covid rate is still very high in Wandsworth, we would ask that all swimmers wear face coverings on their return to the pool and arrive ready to swim. Parents/guardians are also requested to wear a face covering in the viewing gallery (unless medically exempt) which should remain on until leaving the leisure ceentre. Please try to maintain distancing in the gallery where possible and note that no parents will be permitted to remain on poolside during the sessions (you may, of course, bring your children to the Teaching Pool but will then be asked to go to the viewing gallery).
As from Monday, 6th September 2021, all sessions will commence as normal, ie:
Monday, 7.30 to 8.30 and 8.30 to 9.30pm (please check with your teacher on Friday, 10th September before attending either of these sessions if you have not done so previously)
Wednesday – 7pm to 8pm – We only have 2 lanes, so this session is by invite only. It may be possible to have this session from 6.30pm in the future, you will be advised accordingly.
Friday (Main Pool) – 7.30pm to 8.15pm, 8.15pm to 9pm and 9pm to 10pm
Friday (Teaching Pool) – 7.30pm to 8pm and 8pm to 8.30pm
Please do not change your regular session(s) without the approval of your teacher/coach. Can we also ask that swimmers turn up on time please, as late entry into the pool can disrupt the class. Please be on poolside ready for your session to start.
Just a reminder for the Teaching Pool swimmers – your sessions will begin on Friday, 10th September 2021. Please attend at 7.30pm for the first week, as we need to see just how many swimmers we will have. The swimmers will be able to stay in the pool for the full hour. Depending on numbers, swimmers may need to return to their 7.30pm or 8.00pm slot that they were in previously for the following weeks (you will be advised).
Please note: It is very obvious, but swimmers should not attend if they have been in contact with anyone who has tested positive for Covid-19, or if they test positive themselves.
We look forward to seeing you all back soon!!
