•  Every swimmer, PIA and coach MUST register on the Swim Ireland Covid app before every session, on the day of the session - accessible here https://swimireland.oqlist.co.uk

  • Swimmers can check in on their own phone. It is advisable for swimmers and parent adds the link to the homescreen of their phone.

  • This QR code can also be scanned which will bring the person directly to the registration portal. 

  • PIAs will take attendance via a specific portal on the Swim Ireland web app.

This requires a special login and password available at this google doc link (only accessible by parents who have completed Covid officer training) - https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1PFrLvklprydr5PaWegGQDl4UtxyGxAMRfnonRhSTQSc 

Contact details for each swimmer are also available at the link. This login and password will not change.


Steps for PIAs

1. Log into the portal here https://swimireland.oqlist.co.uk/manage 

with Shark's login and password, available at the google doc link above.


2. Check the swimmer has registered.

3. Verify their attendance by clicking 'verify'.


  • If they haven’t registered, ask them to check in with their phone. 

  • If button "Verify" by the name of club participant appears red, it means that the participant has not been cleared to take part in club activity and therefore should be refused entry

  • Only attendees at the club for that day are shown by default. 

  • Multiple people can update the “Verify” status on separate phones if needed 

  • You can only see the data for your club when you login.  

  • Upon verification, the date and time when the button is pressed are stored in case it is needed later.  

As always:

  • You must be there 20 minutes before the scheduled swim time.

  • Please arrive wearing a mask and keep it on for the duration.

  • Know the rules of the facilities and inform the children.

  •  Do NOT allow late arrivals.

  •  There is a Shark kit box in each venue. This contains extra masks and wipes

If a swimmer becomes unwell 

  • Make contact with the venue Covid Officer to escort the swimmer immediately to the designated Covid Isolation Room and follow all of their instructions regarding distancing and use of PPE​

  •  PIA contacts the parent –  coaches have parent contact details and they are available in Shar's google doc.

  •  Inform the lead Covid Officer by email to [email protected]

  • When the session is over, oversee the exit from the facility and when necessary remind swimmers to maintain distance at all times.
