First Taining session started. Welcome back swimmers.
Final “Return to Swimming Tip”
If you want to remember the smell of chlorine, the high temperatures in the viewing area and the uncomfortable seats – then you are welcome to stay.
Please – Only come to sessions you have the agreement to attend. Remember to bring the swimmer;- pool ready and with correctly marked training aids / drinks.
Please – Only one Parent / Guardian to stay.
Please – Follow the OCL directions set out at the Leisure Centre and of course respect the social distancing rules.
Of course, if you prefer not to stay, that will be fine, but please be back in good time to pick up when the session finishes.
We will be checking that we have your contact details on arrival, this is both in case we need to get hold of you and for the records of any CV-19 reported issues in the session reported afterwards.
If you have an agreed swim slot, please remember to arrive 10 minutes before the session starts, and arrive Swim ready.
Swimming Costumes under clothing that can be removed poolside, with your own training aids and drink bottles.
Please make sure all training aids and bottles are clearly marked with the swimmers name.
Please do not come if you have not replied to an agreed training session.
Two things that are important in the return to swimming.
First : Make sure you have a session confirmed with the coaching team. All swimmers should have had an email offering a swim session and it’s important for you to accept by replying as soon as you can.
If you have not received an email, please contact us. You will not be admitted into the building if you are not on the list for the agreed session.
Second : If you have any health concerns, or been in contact with anybody with concerns, please do not come swimming.
Handy Tip #2 : Start thinking about warm ups at home. Initially we wont be warming up poolside, have a think about how you could do some home warm ups before you arrive for you swimming sessions.
Its been a while since the last swim training session, and some children grow quick.
Handy Tip # 1 – dig out your old swimming costumes and make sure they still fit before you return to training – you dont want to look out of place by the pool.
See you all poolside soon.
I hope the swimmers are all excited about coming back to training. You should have had contact from the Coaching team about the session you are invited to by now, it is important to respond as soon as possible.
You should also have received a letter about Monthly Fees – if you could please action that as soon as possible.
I am sure you will be happy to be back !
See you all soon.
Any concerns – please contact us through the Ask ORCA page.
ORCA are pleased to announce that we will be opening up swimming again very soon.
This will be a phased return, we will be contacting you very soon with details.
Watch your emails from the club and coaching team.
