Parents are required to provide supervision as part of the swimmers membership of the club. Parents are required to be on the pool bank when scheduled. This is a Swim Ireland, Safeguarding requirement. In the event that no parent is available for pool bank duty, the session will be canceled. As such it is every parents responsibility to ensure that the session will go ahead before leaving the pool.

It is your responsibility to arrange a replacement in the event that you cannot cover a session.

The schedule is arranged in advance and changes can only be made with significant notice to the committee.
