what to do at starting blocks

What to do at Starting Blocks, special thanks to Covid 19...

Entry: Entry will be via the main door. You may exit via the main door or by the Fire escape door.

Capacity: Our maximum number of people allowed onsite as of Fridays lifting of the 100 rule is now based on 1 person per 4 square meters: OUR CURRENT COVID CAPACITY IS 116 PERSONS. We will also have capacity for individual rooms listed at the entry to those rooms.

Parents: We are limiting to 1 parent/carer per family group.

Teacher Contact:

Bubs format will have no teacher contact, teachers to instruct parents/carers during class.

Levels 1 to 3 Full Contact is permissible ( and necessary for safety ) under the June 13 lifting of restrictions.

Levels 4 and 5 will have a teacher in the water with minimal contact.

Level 6 and squads will continue with no contact teaching.

Toilets are still available.

Showers and Changing: The showers will remain closed until the next review, change benches for bubs will be available and sanitised after each use. Please place a towel between the mat and your little person. Swimmers are encouraged to enter the building ready to swim, and exit in their towel to avoid getting changed.

Viewers: Please limit to 1 parent/carer per family group. Level 6 and squad swimmers are encouraged to be dropped off and picked up after class.

Sanitiser: An extra hand sanitiser has been placed at the entry. There is a hand sanitiser in the lower waitroom. Of course there are 2 very large bowls of full body sanitiser for the swimmers to swim in.

Contact tracing:

We are required to keep a record of all that enter the building. Our swim school management system will see no need to implement sign in sheets at reception provided that: we have your correct mobile number and email address on your account, and that the account holder is the person bringing the students. We will check your details are correct on arrival.

Equipment: Other than kickboards and pools noodles is strictly BYO. We will stop the loan of goggles, fins etc if you have forgotten your own.

Swimmers must bring their own goggles, swim cap, towel, (and fins for the squad swimmers).

We will prefer contactless payments in the office.

Welcome back!

Covid 19 Statement

Our position on Covid 19 Management.

If you or your swimmer ( or parent ) are feeling any signs or symptoms of cold or flu, DO NOT COME TO STARTING BLOCKS. We have increased out make up time limit from 10 weeks to until the end of the year. Log in to your portal and let us know you can't make it, or send us a message, or call. We will not allow anyone with flu like symptoms access to the center. 


Covid19 Lockdown

Hello everyone.
By now you have probably already heard that the Government has decided to close indoor sporting centers, effective from Midday on Monday 23rd of March, and implement strict lock down on non essential activities. There is no re-open date as yet, and we are awaiting further details on this.
As a result, we are closing the swim school from Monday the 23rd of March at Midday.
We are aware that there are 2 and a half weeks remaining this term. So while we will be open  Monday, until Midday, this will effectively be the last day of swimming until further notice.

We expect that this will continue until the standard school holidays when we are closed anyway, so we expect we will be able to re-open from Monday the 27th of April ( term 2 ), as normal. Obviously we will keep you updated as we are.

Regarding your classes over the next 2 weeks. We will credit those towards your next swim term.

Ironically the statements for next terms lessons were due to be sent out Sunday the 22nd of March! We will be sending out information from our booking system ( simply swim ) regarding next terms bookings. Please reply to that message about your bookings rather than via Facebook as it is easier for us to action.

For everyone swimming Monday, see you then! If you are not booked in on Mondays, we wish you all the best in health and look forward to seeing you again in a month or so.

Take care
