Returning to the Pool Guidance

This interactive resource is for teachers and coaches and illustrates the key measures that need to be in place to reduce the risk of Covid-19 transmission within the swimming pool environment. It has been created to complement the Swim England Return to Pools Guidance.

A downloadable certificate is included for those who successfully complete the final quiz which can be used to show customers and employers that you are ready to return to the pool.

Topics covered are:

  • The Guidance
  • Risk Assessments
  • Inclusive Practice
  • Returning to Swimming Lessons
  • Delivering from Poolside
  • Effective Communication
  • Guidance for Coaches

The e-learning is free for Institute of Swimming Members as part of their Online Learning Hub.

Those who have completed the first half of their qualification with us during lockdown can also access the e-learning for free so they are ready to attend their practical assessment. Head to your Institute of Swimming profile and click on the ‘Online Learning’ button which is to the right of your course title. Once you have entered the online learning portal, click on 'Free Resources'.

We are keen to support all our partners who wish to ensure their workforce can implement the guidance effectively. If you would like to discuss e-learning access for your workforce, please contact
