Club Update June 2020

Dear Everyone at Hetton ASC,
A lot has happened since we stopped Swimming back in March. Above all we hope everyone is safe and well and has made it through this extremely difficult period of time.

At this time we wanted to share with you the latest information we have and also start to plan our return to Swimming.

Swim England issued their return to training guidance last week. As a Club we are now starting to look at how we can put these guidelines into practice for our training sessions. (Unfortunately, we do not have a date as yet when we will return but we need to be ready.)

To enable us to do this we need some help from everyone. A short survey has been emailed out, which will only take 30 seconds to complete. Can everyone complete this survey by Monday 29th June. If more than one member of your family swims at the Club, you need to complete a survey for each of them.

Even if you do not intend to return to swimming immediately or not at all, can you still complete the survey.

If you haven't received your survey invite can you please get in touch with Heather, it may be that we don't hold your current email address. It is always important that the Club holds the most up to date contact information for everyone connected with the Club and its especially important at this time.

When we are able to return to swimming we may also need help at sessions to act as "marshals". The marshals will help move the swimmers around the facility in a structured and safe way. Full training and instructions will be given.

We will keep you informed at every step in the planning process. Our plans will change and reflect any new government and Swim England guidelines. Our main concern, as always, is that our members are safe at all of our sessions.

If you have any questions please get in touch.

Squad catch up sessions have been taking place this week along with a Bingo Night tonight! We hope everyone gets involved with all the things we're trying to do to keep everyone connected and together as a Club.

There's a link below to the Swim England guidelines for everyone to take a look at it and help understand some of the considerations.

We look forward to seeing everyone again soon.
