Swim England statement on training in groups after lockdown restrictions eased

Swim England has issued the following statement after the coronavirus lockdown was further eased by the Government.

A spokesperson for the recognised national governing body said: “Swim England is seeking clarity from Government as to the extent of the easing of the lockdown that enables groups of up to six people from different households in England to meet outside.

“This raises the possibility that land training and open water training in small groups may be allowed and we are seeking further detail on this on behalf of our members which we expect to receive next week.

“Should this activity be permitted, we will issue guidance in due course to support our clubs and members.

“Clubs should not undertake this form of training until we have further information and guidance has been issued.”
