NUNBEDSWIM Update

Hi AllMany thanks for your support and understanding over the last few months, we know this has been a difficult time for everyone and like you we can’t wait to be back in the water.A lot of work has been involved in getting to this stage so please read all the enclosed information carefully and sign & return the forms requested. Unless we have these returned you/your child will not be allowed to train. Firstly a few important notes:Please do not arrive at the pool more than 10 mins prior to the start of your session, no late admittance will be permitted so please ensure you are there on time.

  • Please watch the video relevant to the pool you are training at this shows the way in & out.Both have been uploaded to facebook.
  • There are hand sanitisers at the entrance to both buildings please ensure you use them on your way in.
  • Please do not congegrate in the public areas, when you get the centre, make your way through to the poolside.
  • When swimmers get to poolside, outside shoes must be removed – at this point they will be checked in, if health forms have not been returned by email then they need to be handed in at this point to the Covid Liaison person who will also take their temperature- they will be checked in and given their training lane bubble. They must remain in this bubble & lane for every training session.
  • Swimmers must arrive at the Pool Beach Ready,
  • At Pingles bags should be put on the wall, balcony step or window ledge please leave space in between your bag and the next one to maintain social distancing.
  • At Bedworth the 1st row of seating is for bag drop only.
  • At both pools the showers are not in use, also swimmers should towel dry and put their outerwear on before they leave poolside as we will not be using the changing rooms.
  • Swimmers must adhere to all social distancing protocol & any instructions given whilst in the pool and in the building. The Coach/Covid Lead has the authority to remove them from the session if they don’t.
  • The balcony has significantly reduced capacity therefore only parents whose child is 10/under will be allowed on the balcony and this is restricted to 1 parent per family. At Pingles the 1st row of seating is not in use and then it is every other row (the blue seats) please only use the seats with green markings on, at Bedworth only the back row of seating is usable. Parents of children between the ages of 10-12 should drop their children a the door to the pool and then wait in the car park for the duration of the session.
  • If you do spectate you will need to fill in a health survey form and have a temperature check before you will be permitted onto the balcony. You will also need to leave your name and contact details with covid liaison person for the purposes of trfack & trace only.
  • Please ensure that you are in the carpark on time to collect your swimmer/s
  • Anyone who has high temperature will not be permitted to swim (or spectate). As per NHS guidelines a temp over 37.8c or above is classed as high

All session times have been sent to squads by their coaches. Please find click the following docs to read/print/download them:Health Survey – to be completed & returnedReturn to Training Declaration – to be completed & returnedAdvice for return to exercise It goes without saying that if your child is showing symptoms of COVID19 or feeling unwell they MUST NOT attend the session.

Return to Training

Apologies this update is quite late but we have been finalising our training plan which has taken a while, due to changes to the proposed timetable by Everyone Active.

We now have a temporary timetable, which will be reviewed regularly and when guidelines etc change, we will start to move back to our usual timetable.

Below is how the squads & Learn to Swim will return to Pingles & Bedworth – more information will be sent out in group emails to each squad and will include a health survey which needs to be returned before your child will be allowed back in the water.

Phased return

 Week 1- Mon 24/08: Midland, County, County Development, Senior Club, Junior Club and Intermediate Club 

Week 2 – Sun 30/08: Midland, County, County Development, Senior Club, Junior Club and Intermediate Club and Skills + Level 5 

Week 3 – Sun 06/09: Midland, County, County Development, Senior Club, Junior Club and Intermediate Club, Skills + Level 5 and Learn to Swim

I can confirm that on Monday 24th August the session is from 8-9pm at Pingles – this will be for Senior & Intermediate Club

Midland & County squad are at Coventry on Saturday 22nd August 4-5pm and their first session at the Pingles will be Tuesday 25th August 6-7am 

Full sessions and timings for next week will be published in the next few days and we will issue the following phase in due course.

Due to the reduced hours at both centres our normal timetable has been impacted significantly – especially over the weekends. Please be aware we have taken all the time that has been offered to us and will endeavour to secure further pool time as soon as possible.

Many thanks

Update from Committee

Dear Members

 On behalf of the committee we hope that you are all keeping safe & well during these strange times. We held a virtual committee meeting last night thanks to the powers of technology and wanted to update you all on a few things: AGM – As you may be aware this was due to be held on 4th June – given the current situation we feel it best that we postpone the AGM until early October. The committee have all agreed to remain in post until then – I hope you will agree that this is the best way forward, as even if we could hold a virtual AGM, nominating and seconding for posts and voting would not be easy. The committee also felt that it would not be the right time to handover should there be changes in personnel for any roles and felt that stability is what is needed currently.We have spoken with other clubs and Swim England regarding postponing an AGM and they have advised that given the extenuating circumstances this is permissible. Link to Swim England advice pages: https://www.swimming.org/swimengland/coronavirus-faqs-answered/ June Open Meet – The committee have made the decision that cancelling the June open meet would be the right thing to do in the current climate. Swim England have cancelled all National meets until end August currently and even if we are allowed back to train the swimmers would not be race fit and we don’t want to put extra pressure on them after an enforced break from training.

 March Fees – As you are aware the treasurer sent a note out to all members regarding fees, if you pay by direct debit we will make sure that once Aprils direct debit has been taken (for March training fees) then we will not request anymore until we are back training. (If we are back in June then it will be July when a payment is taken). If you pay by standing order then you need to cancel your standing order and restart it once we are back training Once we know when we are back training we will confirm how much the fees for that month will be, this will take into account a 50% credit for March as we were unable to train for the whole month.

 If you have any queries or concerns re any of the above then please contact me chairnbsc@gmail.com

NBSC Payments Going Forward

Dear Members

Firstly, Nuneaton & Bedworth Swimming Club, would like to thank you for your understanding in these uncertain times. Please trust that we will ensure we do everything in our power for the benefit of your children.  

Our plan with the payments going forward are as follows:

If you pay by DIRECT DEBIT

Please DO NOT cancel – we will collect payment at the end of March and then not call for any further direct debits until we know what is going on. We will keep you well informed of any information we receive.

The Direct Debit due to be taken at the end of March will cover March training, we know that this has been cancelled today (20 March) and we will take this into account when we reinstate the payments. We will ensure that this in the benefit to you and your children and not the club.

Anyone who has set a direct debit up and also made a standing order payment for March will shortly see a credit on their swim manager account to cover the fee due at the end of this month which will stop the direct debit from being taken.

If you pay by STANDING ORDER

If you are paying by Standing order ensure that you cancel these as soon as possible – BEFORE APRIL 1ST.  Once we know more about when we will be able to resume teaching/training we will communicate the best course of action for payment.

External Open Meet entries

Anyone who has already paid for their entries to Derventio I will contact you separately in due course to arrange a refund.

If you have any queries please do not hesitate to contact us.

Best wishes to you all and take care.

Ruth Pearce

Treasurer

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

SWIM MANAGER IS HERE

You should have received an email telling you how to log on – if you have not received one please contact chairnbsc@gmail.com with your name, childs name and email address so we can send log on details to you. There will be a couple of sessions at the pool for parents so you can see swim manager – these will be done early Feb so that we can help you set up the direct debit etc. Details will be confirmed by the end of this week and posted on here and facebook.

There is a user guide on the system and we sent a very basic logon guide with the log on email.

Everything will be managed through swim manager, when you 1st log in you will need to read & accept all the club policies and also then update all personal details, medical & photo consent options, the user guide will cover all this.

For Bay 5 upwards this will include all payments which will change to direct debit rather than standing order – you will receive an email asking you to set this up. Feb fees should be paid by standing order, this will then need to be cancelled and a direct debit set up – this will be detailed in the email. From 1st March bay 5  & above monthly fees will be taken by direct debit.

Swim school payments will continue to be paid by standing order, but parents will have the same access to swim manager as the squads.
