Please read the information below with regards to how we are currently running our swimming lessons due to Covid. This may change dependent on government advice and we are hoping as restrictions are lifted with social distancing we can go back to running our lessons as we previously did.
Teachers and assistants are teaching on the poolside and not in the water to remain socially distant.
In an emergency they would enter the water and make physical contact if only absolutely necessary.
Parents or guardians are required to get in the water with their child if they are pre-school, beginners or if they have additional needs. This is so they can be supported in the water to be safe.
Lessons have remained 30 minutes at these premises.
Our capacity is currently reduced to adhere to social distancing in the pool.
Class sizes are variable dependent upon variety factors such as swimming ability, what other classes are on at that time and whether parents are required in the water.
There are no spectators currently allowed in the building due to our capacity and ability to adhere to social distancing to keep staff and customers safe.
Lessons are currently 20 minutes at these premises with only 3 in a class to adhere to social distancing.
There are no spectators currently allowed in the building.
Lessons will go back to 30 minutes once restrictions on social distancing are lifted.
Beach Style Ready / Changing Rooms / Spectators
On arrival we will be asking for you to come with your costume or trunks underneath your clothing, onesie or robe and only use the changing rooms after your lesson.
Following your lessons, you may wish to leave wet in your robe to reduce possible contact and transmission further, but we appreciate that this is not ideal so changing rooms are available for use.
