7 Important Swimming Questions Post COVID-19

Swimming Expert Answers Popular Swimming Questions Post COVID-19

  • Is it safe to swim in swimming pools post pandemic? Could I catch COVID-19 when I swim in a swimming pool?

W.H.O says, Chlorinated water kills Coronavirus in a few seconds.
  • Can I expect my child to go back to the same level of swimming as pre-COVID, if we have done now swimming since the start of pandemic?

Unfortunately, the answer yes. 
If you have stopped the swimming lesson with the pandemic 
or done swimming in on-off manner, a regression is inevitable
The more basic swimmers should expect more regression 
in water-confidence and technique.
  • Can I expect swim teachers to be in the water during the lessons?

Since 19th of July 2021, there's no need to observe social distancing. 
Our swim teachers are in water.
  • Do I have to bring my own floats or teaching aids to your swimming lessons? If no, is it COVID-safe to use your swim school’s floats for my child?

Regarding swimming teaching equipments, we are following both Government guidance 
and guidelines for swimming set by Swim England. Read Full details 

The guidance recommends swimmers to bring their own floats/kick board, if possible. 
However, we do use our own swimming teaching equipments. 
After each lesson, every teaching equipment that has been touched/used by swimmers 
and teachers, will get soaked in Chlorinated water for 2-3 minutes. 

  • If I am struggling with attending a swimming lesson, is there another time or week I could change my lesson to?

Unfortunately, no. 

The dates for your lessons that you booked cannot change 
if your personal circumstances change. 
 
The only time we can change lessons to another time/week if you or someone 
in your household 
has a positive test for COVID-19 and your household has to self-isolate. 
You need to provide an official confirmation about the positive COVID-19 test though.

  • Can I do a free trial swim lesson before signing up? 

No. Post pandemic, we don't offer any free trial lessons.

 

  • Do swim teachers have to follow the social distancing rule when teaching swimming?

On Monday 19th of July, all restrictions lifted.
There is no need to follow any social distancing rule.
Our swim teachers don't need to observe the social distancing rules when teaching lessons.
