OUR COVID-19 COMMITMENT
All of our venues must comply with Swim England, Scottish Swimming, Swim Wales and Swim Ulster return to Pools Guidance and have the relevant health and safety documentation in response to delivering COVID-19 secure events, in line with their own venue operating procedures.
We have given the option to venues to increase the session length to 4 hours - this is to allow for pools to have a delivery option of 4 x 45 minute slots with cleansing time between slots if their venue operating procedures require this. The capacity for each session will be guided by COVID-19 return to pools guidance that each venue is adhering to.
All venues have signed a Ts&Cs document to confirm they have all the required health and safety measures in place. Our main priority is the safety of our swimmers and we have worked with our venues to ensure that the event in September runs in accordance with any COVID-19 guidelines that are in place.
