We are excited to welcome you back!
To keep everyone safe, we will continue to take a cautious and measured approach while considering the Government, Swim England, STA, and our pool operator’s Covid-19 safety guidance. Whilst things may not be exactly the same as before, if we all work together to follow the new safety guidelines and stay at home if unwell your Wizards can enjoy all the fun and health benefits of swimming again. Be assured our lessons will continue to be fun, progressive, and most importantly as safe as possible!
Super impressed today! You have all worked really hard… it was organised, safe and well thought out! Well done Zoe…you and your team did yourselves proud!E, Northampton
Some of the steps pool operators are taking
Your cooperation is required and very much appreciated.
Chlorine levels in the pools have been adjusted. The available evidence shows that the physical effect of the pool water and an appropriate relationship between free chlorine and pH value should inactivate the virus within 15-30 seconds.PWTAG Technical Note 46
Pool ventilation systems will be providing fresh air to the pool hall.
- To reduce time spent in the changing rooms, Stage 3-10 swimmers will be asked to arrive “beach ready” with swimwear under easy to remove clothing on poolside.
- Changing rooms will be exit only (used only after swimming) for these Stages.
- Swimmers exiting lessons will be given a 10-minute window to briefly dry, dress and leave the facility.
- Lots of our swimmers already choose to bring a onesie, dry robe, or poncho towel to go home in after a brief towel dry in the changing rooms. We ask that all swimmers adopt this where possible to minimise time spent in the changing rooms.
Some steps we are asking you to take
To keep everyone safe your visit to NSG & NSB will be different from before. Please be assured these changes have been made with the aim of giving your Wizards the best possible safe experience with the minimum disruption.
Please do not attend lessons if you or your swimmer have a confirmed case of Covid-19. Remain at home and take a test.
To reduce time spent in the changing rooms, swimmers will need to arrive “beach ready” (Stages 3-10) with swimwear underneath clothing.
We can only admit one adult per swimmer into the pool facility with a maximum total of two adults if you have 2 or more swimmers attending lessons. Please consider that seating on poolside is extremely limited.
