As we gradually return to fuller programmes for both land-training and swimming sessions, it is vital that all members comply with the new rules to keep everyone safe.
All swimmers have to read, understand and agree to the Code of Conduct, Health Awareness Declaration and the Return to Training Plan before coming to land-training or swimming. This will be the case for every session on offer until further notice. Nobody will be allowed to participate unless they have agreed to these, whether they are on our registers or not.
You can make your agreement online here: HAC C19 WAIVERS.
You can also download and read the relevant documents below. As we move forward, learn and adapt to the evolving situation we expect guidelines and our policies to be improved so do look out for updates in weekly emails.
We have also added the Risk Assessment below, which gives you full insights into how the club is managing our return to swimming.
Please take note of some addition to the current rules:
Please continue testing twice weekly in line with government policy for all school age children.
We also ask our master swimmers to take a regular lateral flow test.
Lateral flow tests should be regularly used to detect cases where the person is asymptomatic.
We also ask you to take the lateral flow test before a competition (on the morning or 24 hours before).
Any swimmer displaying symptoms should arrange a PCR test and stay at home and self isolate until they get the test results.
Please notify your SQUAD COACH if you have tested positive or you have been asked to self isolate.
We think it is important that we work together as a community to help to keep the number of positive cases as low as we can (and protect those with immune compromised condition).
