COVID-19 Code of Conduct Addendum


COVID-19 Returning to Pool Code of Conduct Addendum


It remains our primary aim to create a safe, happy, and fun environment in which all members of WSC develop their swimming progress to their full ability. However, in order to effectively manage risk, and to comply with the guidelines issued by the UK Government and Swim England swimmers will need to behave differently when they return to pool. Therefore, for the duration of the COVID-19 Pandemic, and whilst these government guidelines remain in place, this addendum to the Code of Conduct will apply.

The club’s Welfare and Children Protection Policy, Anti - Bullying Policy, and Code of Ethics will remain in force and should be read in conjunction with this policy document.


Coaches and Volunteer's Responsibilities


During this period coaches and volunteers will ensure that swimmers:

  1. Enter the premises at the right times and through the designated entrances

  2. Follow instructions on hygiene, such as hand washing and sanitising

  3. Observe appropriate social distancing when static either in and out of the water

  4. Move around the pool as per specific instructions

  5. Do not share any equipment or other items including drinking bottles

  6. Are aware of our amended expectations about training structure


Swimmers Responsibilities


In addition to our usual expectations of conduct and behaviour, we expect swimmers:

  1. To arrive punctually at the pool at the designated entrance

  2. Follow instructions on hygiene , such as handwashing and sanitising

  3. To maintain appropriate social distance when static either in and out of the water
