Swimming Update – Phase 4 (Monday 7th September) Phase 5 (Wednesday 7th October)

Swimming Update – Phase 4 (Monday 7th September)

                                     Phase 5 (Wednesday 7th October)

Our return to the pool plan involves , at present, 5 phases. The steps we have taken so far have been restricted to what Everyone Active have allowed us to do along with Swim England guidance. We have worked together with Everyone Active to get the club to this point and are thankful for their continued support.

Phase 4 starting week beginning Monday 7th September

This will include different squads (e.g. upper / lower development, club swimmers and masters) in back to back sessions, using single lanes.

This phase will be for swimmers who swim lengths only. 

You will return to your normal sessions but some sessions have a time adjustment.

Saturday  

Now starting half hour earlier so either 6.30am instead of 7am start or 7.30am start instead of 8am

Sunday 

Same timings as before lockdown either 4pm or 5pm start

Monday 

Same timings as before lockdown 6.30pm start

Wednesday club night lengths only  Same timings from 7pm onwards.

If you’re in top squad and start secondary school in September your session will be 8pm til 9pm

Phase 5 Wednesday 7th October will be the return of widths 6.30pm til 7pm. 

This phase is the hardest to maintain social distancing in the pool so needs to be planned carefully. We also will have only one session available not two like we had pre lockdown. If you accessed Wednesday widths and a lengths session at a different session your sessions will start in October.

However if we feel we need to put in extra steps we will do to ensure the safety of all. The addition of each squad is risk assessed to manage and monitor impact.

If you don’t feel ready to return to the pool just yet that is not a problem. All we ask is you let us know so we are aware of pool space for when you are ready to return.

We are also limited by how many swimmers we can have in the pool to ensure social distancing is maintained. Please only attend the same sessions you had attended previously ( or the equivalent session time) as this is what our numbers have been based on.

All times and sessions are subject to change in this covid world we are now part of.

Apologies this is taking time but we have to follow Swim England guidance and ensure the process is managed carefully and safely.

You will also be asked to complete a Health Survey and Return to Swim declaration for the swimmer before they can return. If this is not complete the swimmer will not be allowed to swim.

You will soon receive an email with log in details to Swim Manager were you will be asked to confirm emergency contact and medical details.

Any further questions please do ask via email to secretary@kingfishersswimmingclub.org.uk

Please don’t post swimmer details on the Facebook page (GDPR)

Thank you for your continued support.

Kingfishers SC – Swimming suspended with immediate effect (18/03/2020)

Kingfishers SC – Swimming suspended with immediate effect (18/03/2020)

We have had a fantastic response from our poolside and dryside helpers and could run training sessions. A massive thank you to all who have selflessly offered to volunteer their time.

However the Club trustees and committee have decided to suspend all swimming until further notice.

The commitee  will meet with E.A. and work out a pathway going forward.
Please bear with us while we work out the financial impact this will have on you as parents and swimmers, and as us as a club.

Please all stay safe and ‘wash those hands’
Go Kingo’s
