Changing

We’re asking everyone to arrive at the pool beach ready, which means having your costume on underneath what you’re wearing and strip off poolside. The changing rooms also can’t be used after the swimming sessions, so robes or clothes will need to be thrown on over the top of your costume.

Your bit of the pool

The pool will be divided into 4 sections of 3 metres by 6 metres, one of these will be yours for the 30-minute session to practice what your child’s learned lessons or to just enjoy some quality family time safely during COVID-19. If you need it, we’ll provide equipment that has been cleaned before use and that you can leave by the pool once your session has finished.

Remember, you must keep 2 metres from anyone outside of your household or support bubble.
