Supporting Resources

We have produced a range of supporting resources for the aquatics community.

The resources below support the core advice in our Step 4 considerations and will be updated where necessary to reflect the government’s changes to the restrictions from 19 July.

To see all the pool layout examples from our previous Covid guidance documents, click here. Whilst the requirement to socially distance has been removed, you may decide you wish to continue using these examples.
