Coronavirus Update 20/03/20

Following on from my update yesterday, it is clear from the committee responses that whilst they appreciate what we have been trying to do the majority would prefer us to temporarily suspend training sessions – which I completely understand, this is a worrying time for all and it is difficult to know what to do for the best.The coaches (in their coaching capacity) would like training to continue with training and are happy to do so, however, I do have to listen to & take on board the rest of the feedback and it is therefore with a very heavy heart that I have to announce that all training sessions will be ceased with immediate effect, temporarily, until further notice.We will continue to monitor and review all advice and as soon as it is deemed ok we will be back training.We will keep in regular contact with all committee, coaches and members.I have asked the coaches to think about how we can keep some form of fitness going throughout this period – some clubs have started to upload some daily fitness sessions with videos, it is really important that we keep our swimmers motivated especially as they have no school now and some have been told they cannot take their exams – I am thinking of their mental wellbeing as well as physical.

Thank you for all your support during this unprecedented and difficult time
