Norwich Swan Swimming Club


Hethersett Pool Protocols

COVID-19 remains a part of our lives so we are continuing to keep some measures in place to keep ourselves and others safe for a while longer.

If your swimmer is displaying symptoms or has tested positive please do not attend lessons. 

We want to ensure that all swimmers are as safe as possible whilst under our care, and to keep our teaching team healthy and able to deliver the lessons through the next few months.  

Just to update you on how lessons will be running at Hethersett:

  • Swimmers should still arrive at the pool “beach ready” with swimwear on under their outer clothing as the changing rooms are not in use prior to the start of the session.

  • The teacher will come out to collect the class so please wait outside.

  • Swimmers enter through the disabled changing rooms (to the left of the changing rooms door) and place their bags on poolside, remove outer clothing and get into the pool when instructed. 

  • Parents are not allowed on poolside as per this pool provider's rules.  However, if your swimmer is unhappy without you there we would allow you in to settle them and then leave the session again once they are ok. You should be socially distanced if on poolside, but masks are optional.

  • At the end of the session, swimmers will proceed either to the changing rooms, if they wish to quickly get changed. Or if not, then put on a dressing gown or similar and go out through the changing rooms to the exit. 

  •  If parents need to accompany younger swimmers to assist with changing they can but please keep to one adult per child and avoid bringing in siblings if possible. 

  • We would politely request that masks are to be worn in the changing rooms.

  • If you leave the session you MUST be on time to collect. However, please do not congregate in the changing rooms prior to collection time.
