swim! are ready to safely open as soon as the government announces when leisure facilities can reopen.
Our team have implemented the necessary changes to ensure we follow Government and Governing Body guidelines to keep our team, swimmers and families safe.
Social distancing and increased hygiene procedures will be our main priorities. We have updated our H&S documentation and trained our team accordingly. All of our swim! team will be qualified in a Covid19 safety qualification before we re-open for lessons.
To provide a Covid secure environment. We will welcome employees, customers and swimmers into our facilities providing they are symptom free, a reminder of the symptoms are visible outside our venues.
We know that our swimmers have not been in a lesson for a while and we want to make sure we re-introduce them in the safest way possible. Therefore our 1st week of returning to lessons will start on our lifesaving theme followed by an initial assessment. The lessons will focus on fun and confidence in the water and we will also be taking additional precautions with arm disks to secure the safety of swim! groups 1 & 2.
If you, your swimmer, or a member of your household or contact bubble displays symptoms outlined in government guidelines of covid19 then we ask that you follow the recommendations in government guidelines, and do not attend your lesson. As normal you can update your online account to let us know you can’t attend a lesson, or you can email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Sure, but there will be some new adjustments that we will be asking all customers to follow these will be explained prior to you returning. This includes our new 1 parent/guardian to 1 swimmer ratio, to reduce footfall in the building to follow social distancing.
Parents/Guardians and swimmers will be greeted at reception and asked to enter the reception area to handover their swimmer to our swim! teacher, who will guide them through to poolside safely. Parents will make their way to the viewing area which will be set up for social distancing.
We ask that siblings who are not swimming either at the same time or where lessons are back to back that they do not attend the swim! venue. If this is completely unavoidable you will be asked to sit together within the spectator area abiding by the social distancing guidelines.
Swimmers be expected to arrive ‘Beach ready’ under their clothing 5 minutes before their lesson starts, waiting outside the venue on our blue flipper dots.
Yes, we will be limiting the amount of equipment we use in our lessons to essential buoyancy aids and necessary teaching equipment. Following Governing Body guidelines all pool equipment will be sanitised before each lesson starts.

Sarah will also be reducing her teaching days as she is in her third trimester of pregnancy. All other teachers remain the same.
swim! already operates below the recommended Government and Governing Body guidelines for the number of swimmers per lesson. This enables us to comply with social distancing guidelines.
Changing room facilities will be open following lessons, we are asking customers to adopt a ‘Dry, Dress and Exit’ approach so we have time to clean the facilities between lessons.
Alongside our ‘Beach Ready’ approach we ask that your child showers at home before and after lessons, as our showers will not be in use due to social distancing guidelines.

Our 1st lesson back will be lifesaving themed for your child’s safety and we will assess your child’s current ability. The next few weeks will be used to refresh our swimmer’s technique and skills. Verbal feedback will not be given after each class, whilst social distancing is in place. For any updates please speak with our reception team who will arrange for your teacher to call you and provide feedback.
Our toilets will be open as usual, we just ask that you follow our hand washing guide posters and thoroughly clean your hands afterwards. We have also added additional sanitiser stations around swim!.
We ask that you arrive 5 mins prior to your lesson time, ‘Beach Ready’. If you are late you will be asked to wait until all previous swimmers have left the building before you can enter. This should be no longer than 5 minutes.
