Hello everyone, after months of uncertainty, we are delighted to be reopening on Monday June 7th at 10am. We will be operating under Level 3 to begin with and are hopeful that the government will move us to Level 2 later in the summer.
We know that you are bound to have many questions depending on the facilities that you use, so we will run down through each of the different areas here:
All members will have access from Monday June 7th. If you pay by Direct Debit, your fee will not be collected until July 1st and the amount will be equivalent to twenty-four days of your monthly fee, reverting to normal from August onwards. If you are a Paid in Full member, your membership term will be extended by the duration of our closure, 1st January to June 6th inclusive.
Children’s Swimming Lessons - Ducklings, Levels 1 to 8, Sharks
Level 3 restrictions prohibit swimming lessons from taking place. Once we move into Level 2, we will be offering all children who attended in March 2020, a three week "Return to Swimming" programme free of charge allowing parents to recoup the financial value of the lessons that could not be given due to the Lockdown at that time. This short course is designed to reintroduce them to their swim skills, allow our teachers to assess where they are at and prepare them for the next steps in their swim progress. After that, we can begin a new nine-week term of lessons and will be holding an open enrolment date for all new swimmers who wish to join.
Adult Swimming Lessons
Adult Swimming Lessons will return once we move from Level 3 into Level 2 restrictions.
Children’s Camps begin on Monday July 5th and will continue throughout July and August. Bookings can be made on Eventbrite. We are not permitted to conduct Swim Skills Camps under Level 3 restrictions however we do have a full Multiactivity programme for all children from four to thirteen years. All campers will enjoy a diverse range of non-contact activities in a safe and controlled environment, while observing all COVID safety protocols. Children will be divided into pods of fifteen within their respective age groups.
Birthday Party bookings will be welcome from June 7th, with a maximum of fifteen persons per booking, including children and parents. Full details of the birthday party packages that will be available will be published within the coming weeks.
