Following the Prime Minister’s
recent announcement, from 19 July most of the remaining Covid
restrictions have been removed. The latest government guidance can
be found here and should be adhered to. Despite
the removal of the restrictions we are very aware of the continuing
need to manage risk and offer activities that are as safe as
possible at this time.
For this reason, Swim England have
produced some considerations to support organisations including
pool operators, clubs and swim schools. These build upon the
learnings from our previous Covid guidance.
We have also published information to
help swimming competition organisers planning events. Information
for water polo and artistic swimming competitions will be published
by 23 July.
Ultimately decisions on what takes
place in a pool must be agreed by the user and the operator but we
want to offer information to support this process.
Covid FAQs page will also be updated on an ongoing basis
and should hopefully answer any questions you have regarding what
is allowed but if you still have any queries please do not hesitate
[email protected] – for queries relating to
[email protected] – for all other Covid related
The documents can be accessed via this link
Events already planned under the
previous Step 3 guidance can continue to be delivered as such and
if meet promoters choose to flex their arrangements, this must be
done with the agreement of the pool operator.
We are retaining our series of
additional resources, images and videos which we hope are helpful.
We will be updating these where required to reflect the current
government guidance. You can view and download them on our
supporting documents page.
We have also put together
Guidance for Virtual Teaching and Coaching for you to use.
