COVID-19: Useful Resources For Your Swim School

Please note that with daily Prime Minister press conferences now scheduled, information may change. An updated statement will be issued today. Please always monitor the latest advice here.

These are unprecedented times, and we are very mindful that swim schools up and down the country are / will face huge business challenges over the coming weeks / months as a result of the Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic.

With no current advice here in the UK, that says people should avoid small gatherings, going to school, childcare or indeed swimming lessons as of 16th March 2020, we want to help you stay open for business as long as you can. In support, there are further resources here – including a downloadable template parent’s letter and a sample risk management document in relation to stakeholders, which you can edit and adapt in line with your own swim school requirements.

For you to share across your communication platforms, there is also an educational graphic that visually informs people about the virus and swimming pools.

We would also like to say special thanks to our global partners, in particular Gary Toner and Brendon Ward from ACSTA and Swim Australia – together we have been sharing COVID-19 resources and information with the aim of helping our respective members and swim schools customers as much as we can at this difficult time.
