Catch Up Swimming Lessons
9th September, 2020

As you are aware we have been preparing for the return of swimming lessons at Life Leisure Barrow from mid-September 2020. Our new operating procedures will be in line with relevant Government and Swim England guidance, which will see a change to our usual practice. Full details can be found below.

Online Booking Instructions

Important Information for Parents/Guardians

As stated in our terms and conditions no credits or refunds will be offered unless there is proof of a medical certificate for the period of time covering our re-opening.

Please note some of the main changes within the swimming lesson programme:

  • Swimming teachers will teach from the side of the pool in order to remain socially distanced.
  • Ratio’s in classes will be reduced.
  • Children need to come in swim wear under their clothing to reduce time in changing areas.
  • There will be breaks in between classes to sanitise poolside and equipment and reduce clustering.
  • Children will not share equipment within the lesson. Children will be expected to put on and/or remove their own aids.
  • Children should not bring their record card to swimming lessons.
  • There will be separate entry and exit points to poolside.
  • Spectating areas may have changed. Only 1 adult spectator per swimmer.
  • Ducklings parents will have to be in the water with their child as no teachers are allowed to enter the water.

To accommodate the changes within the guidance, your child’s lesson day and/or time may have to change.

Further details will be sent soon as how to enrol your child/children from 17th October 2020 on continuous lessons.
