Wow!. I cannot believe that we have been back in the pool for nearly 6 weeks now, with Phase 1 of our return to swimming plan finishing next week. It has been sometimes an impossible journey which has been made easier by teamwork from the Covid liaisons, swimmers, coaches and of course you as parents. We would like to say a massive thank you to everyone for their continued support.
We are so proud of all the swimmers as they have handled the “new” ways of doing things with aplomb and continue to train hard to get their fitness levels back to where it was pre Covid. The coaches have been impressed with them as well so please pass on our sincerest thanks to them.
It has been a frantic week trying to coordinate with all the different centres that we use for training to ensure that we implement both Swim England and PHE guidelines so as to keep our swimmers, parents, teachers and coaches safe and Covid secure. As always, we aim to create the best possible COVID-secure environment for us all so that our swimmers can continue to enjoy their training sessions.
Phase 2 return to swimming schedules
This is effective from Monday 14th September 2020. (Download here).
The coaches have extensively reviewed the water times available as well as squad abilities to train together and produced a schedule that works well for the club as we continue to ensure that our swimmers are training effectively.
To best maximise the pool-time there will be some movement of swimmers between squads based on their present training abilities/fitness levels. These will be announced later this week and will be effective from Monday 21st September 2020
As we gradually return to fuller programmes for both land-training and swimming sessions, it is vital that all swimmers comply with the new rules to keep everyone safe.
A further email will be sent out later this week detailing the arrangements for Abbs Cross and Becontree centres.
As always if you have any queries please contact us via the club email address – firstname.lastname@example.org.
