Swim England update open water club activity and land training guidanceJuly 21, 2020
Swim England has updated its recommendations on land training and open water club activity following further changes to Government guidelines.
Six adults from different households are able to meet in an outside environment to undertake land training, allowing for a coach to participant ratio of one to five.
For U18s, that has now increased to 15 plus coaches in the latest update issued by Swim England on 21 July.
The club and coach must continue to risk assess their sessions to ensure that the appropriate coach/ athlete ratios are in place relative to the participants and the nature of the activity.
The guidance will be amended in light of new information emerging.
