COVID-19 Guidance

Here you can find useful information for a safe and sustainable return to swimming after the March-July 2020 lock down.

The club is working with guidance from Swim England and is in discussions with Everyone Active in planning and implementing a safe return to water.

Updates will be issued via the club Facebook Group and website News section.

Return To Swimming Member Survey & Contact Point
Concerns? Advice? Assistance? Feedback?

In preparation for a return and in accordance with Swim England’s advice to clubs, we have established a Planning Group and prepared a short survey to help members with questions or concerns – which is live until 21 June 2020 (access below).

Note: You can email anytime if you or someone you know in the club has a question, wants to let us know something or needs assistance (including club welfare matters). Usually this will be to the Club Secretary for COVID-19 or general matters and the Welfare Officer for confidential welfare assistance. Email us at:

secretary@kingfishersswimmingclub.org.uk, or welfare@kingfishersswimmingclub.org.uk

If you have already responded earlier this week – thank you, we have it! If not – please read on …

Not everyone has access to this group – but it is currently our largest single meeting space until we complete transfer of club records to Swim Manager … more about that another time … so please do share the link as we would normally within the club for those you know are not group members, or ask them to contact the Club Secretary.

The survey is completed outside Facebook in a club controlled survey account.

Your response will help us understand your concerns and whether you are able to come back when safe to do so, and assist us in planning a return to swimming in the pool with Swim England and Everyone Active.

Please reply as an individual swimmer/volunteer OR on behalf of a family including yourself as a parent/carer/swimmer/volunteer.
In other words we need just one response per individual Master/Open Water swimmer and one response if you swim AND have junior members.
Parent and child viewpoints in your answers are equally important to gather feedback.
