Swimming update – September to December 2020

Thank you for your patience as we’re navigating through these strange times and all of the changes that have come about. We’ve been in discussion with Places Leisure regarding pool availability going forwards and from October we’re looking to welcome our younger swimmers back also (Improvers 1 and 2) – stay tuned for further communication on this.

For September, October, November and December, the session times will run as follows:

Day / Time Squads
Wednesday – 6:15pm to 7:45pm Platinum, Gold, Silver, Improver 3, Improver 4, Masters, Student
Fridays – 7pm to 9pm Platinum, Gold, Silver, Bronze, Masters, Student
Sundays – 7:45am to 8.30am Platinum, Gold, Silver, Bronze, Masters, Student

Fees will be applicable as below, these are reduced from pre-Covid and reflect the reduced pool time and coach outgoings. Please can we ask that you pay the Sep fees by 15th Sep and then adjust your standing orders for Oct/Nov/Dec accordingly.

Squad Monthly Fee
Improver 3 £25
Improver 4 £25
Bronze £38
Silver £48
Gold £48
Platinum £48
Masters £42
Student £40

We are hoping to get more pool time in the future as Places Leisure extend their hours of operation, the fees may be subject to change should this happen and / or as we secure our new Head Coach.

We will send out the Covid-19 related information in a separate email. For those of you yet to return to the pool, please note that you will need to complete the health questionnaire and declaration in that email prior to coming poolside – instructions will be sent out. If you were swimming in August and have already completed the information, there is no need for you to do so again.

We are continually monitoring our processes in line with the current Covid-19 guidance and if anything should change we well review our risk assessment and associated procedures and let you know. If you have any Covid related concerns, please direct these to the Covid-19 team at: covid@felixstowe-waves.com

I want to thank all of the swimmers, parents and volunteers who have returned to the pool already for following the new rules really well. It’s been a tremendous effort and a huge shift from ‘normal’. Your collaboration has enabled a smooth re-entry back to training.
