Returning to Pools Guidance Documents

Swim England has published its comprehensive Return to Pools Guidance ahead of the Government easing the current lockdown measures.

Seven detailed documents have been created and are based on the latest scientific advice and Government guidelines.

The guidance includes robust recommendations for clubs, community swimming, school swimming, swimming lessons, users and specific details for the return to competitive training and matches for water polo.

The Government has issued guidance for โ€œProviders of grassroots sport and gym/leisure facilitiesโ€. Providers of aquatic activity should review this alongside the Swim England guidance below.

If you require any of the guidance in another format, e.g large print, then please contact us at guidance@swimming.org and we will be happy to provide it.
