As the club continues to grow with more sessions being provided over the last year, we need to grow our teaching group. We are requesting if any parents/guardians are interested in helping on poolside, please make yourself known to one of our teachers or the desk. We will train you and ensure you go through all the checks and assurances to qualify you to teach/coach. You can help with just one session or more, it is up to you. We just need a reasonable amount of consistency to enable us to plan our session delivery. The quality of th progression of our swimmers relies on the quality of our teachers, therefore you can directly help our club progress if you volunteer.
Thank you, Paul Armstrong (Club Chair and Chief Coach).
As you will have heard in the news over the last few weeks, swimming pools have now been allowed to reopen. After discussions with the Halewood Leisure Centre pool operator, Volair, and following a successful pilot session run on 29th July 2020 the club is ready to recommence swimming sessions.
We propose to recommence in a phased manner. It is likely that the phases will be as follows:
Phase 1 - Lengths sessions, with a maximum of 30 swimmers invited to attend
Phase 2 - Advanced/ Intermediate session return. Subject to numbers, it may be necessary to limit the number of sessions swimmers attend. This will be confirmed closer to the return date.
Phase 3 - Learn to swim return, earliest return September 2020.
Members will be informed of session times and protocols to accommodate social distancing measures the club is taking when they are invited to return to the club, and there may be slight changes to the normal session times to accommodate social distancing measures.
Should club members have any queries regarding the return to lessons, please do not hesitate to contact the club COVID-19 Lead Sue Brocken via the club email.
The clubs immediate priority is to reintroduce existing members to club activities, so we are currently not in a position to admit non-members at this time, however families interested in joining the club are encouraged to register their interest via the e mail address below that can also be found on the homepage of our club website.
