Swim England statement regarding coronavirus outbreak
17 March 2020

Prime Minister Boris Johnson announced on Monday 16 March a range of measures to help combat the spread of the coronavirus (COVID-19).

Having further reviewed the guidance, it is Swim England’s interpretation that club activity falls into the ‘public gathering’ category and therefore it is strongly advising clubs to consider cancelling or postponing activity – including events – until the end of May.

Swim schools should also make an informed decision on future lessons based on the current information from the Government.

Swim England will suspend talent activities across all disciplines with immediate effect, having already announced the decision to cancel all national events until the end of May.

This will include all international and domestic camps, competitions and related activities such as coach conferences across all aquatic sports.

British Swimming, which has also cancelled and postponed a number of events, is speaking to its elite athletes regarding training in the forthcoming weeks.

Best course of action

Jane Nickerson, Swim England Chief Executive, recognised the worries from clubs and learn to swim providers but said a final decision on whether to call off sessions and events had to rest with them.

She added: “We strongly advise on what we believe is the best course of action in the interests of our coaches, teachers, athletes, learners and volunteers.

“We will review this on an ongoing basis and continue to provide updates.”

Meanwhile, George Wood, Swim England’s Sport Development Director, has said the suspension on talent activities will be in place until further notice.


“We understand this will be disappointing for many and, ideally, we would like to rearrange later in the year when we can,” said George. “However, this will depend on how the current situation evolves.

“Our talent programmes will be contacting relevant athletes, coaches and deliverers to inform them of this decision and with further relevant details.

“We’d like to apologise to everyone for any inconvenience this will cause but know that you will understand that it’s been taken in the best interests of social responsibility and provides some certainty during the unprecedented situation we are facing.”

Swim England has cancelled a number of forthcoming events due to the coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak.

The decision has been taken following the Government’s announcement to implement increased social distancing, avoid crowds gathering and carrying out any unnecessary travel.

All competitions organised by the national governing body that are scheduled to be held between now and the end of May have been called off.

That includes the preliminary and qualification rounds and finals for the Water Polo National Age Group Championships for U17s and U19s boys and girls and the Artistic Swimming National Championships.

The British Masters Championships, which is organised and hosted by Swim England, will also not take place.

Entry fees and spectator tickets for all cancelled events will be refunded.

Swim England will look at the potential of rescheduling the events later in the year if that proves to be viable.

Jane Nickerson, Swim England chief executive, said: “Cancelling events is not a decision to take lightly but following the latest announcement by the Government, it’s only right and fair to our members and clubs that we made an announcement sooner rather than later.

“We hope this will allow people to cancel hotels and travel arrangements with the minimum of cost.

“We understand the frustration of those who have been training hard for our national competitions but the health and wellbeing of our athletes, coaches and volunteers is of paramount importance to us.

“Ideally, we would like to rearrange these events and we will look into that but it may not prove to be possible which is why we are refunding all entry fees and spectator tickets.

“We’d like to apologise to everyone for any inconvenience and disappointment these cancellations will cause but hope you understand this decision has been taken to provide some certainty within the unprecedented situation we are facing.”

Continue to review advice

Currently, the Swim England Diving National Age Group Championships is still scheduled to go ahead at the beginning of June.

Jane added: “We will continue to review advice from Government agencies and liaise with the venue operators in relation to our events and competitions from June onwards.

“Sadly, this virus is impacting our sport at a key time for open meets and regional championships. Whilst Swim England cannot dictate to regions and clubs, we do strongly recommend that, for the health and wellbeing of our membership, the advice of the Government is heeded.

“We understand the concerns around the qualifying window for the Swim England Summer Meet, which is impacted by the British Swimming Summer Championships.

“It has been agreed that the current window will be suspended and a technical meeting will take place this week to determine a process for issuing invitations for these meets.

“At present the Government has not closed schools or restricted school activity and therefore we do not see any reason why clubs should not continue with their training programmes in their own environment within the guidelines of the facility.

“We do not recommend training camps or competitions take place with members from different clubs.

“I am really sorry we are in a position whereby events are cancelled and we are recommending a curtailment of activities.

“However, this will not last for ever and we all need to work together to protect ourselves and each other.”

Meanwhile, the organisers of Swimathon have also announced the Swimathon 2020 event weekend – scheduled to take place between 27-29 March – has been postponed until later in the year.

Cancellation of the Swim England North East Regional Championships 2020
Read More
Swim England North East Region have decided to cancel the Regional Swimming Championships which were due to take place on the 25th/26th April & 9th/10th May 2020 at Leeds and on the 2nd/3rd May 2020 at Ponds Forge, Sheffield.

This decision has not been taken lightly.

HM Government & Public Heath England announced yesterday that they wanted to stop non-essential contact with others, and that people should not make any unnecessary journeys.

Subsequent to this Swim England issued a statement confirming that all Swim England National Events, scheduled to be held before the end of May, would be cancelled. The relevant Swim England advice is as follows:-

‘Sadly, this virus is impacting our sport at a key time for open meets and regional championships. Whilst Swim England cannot dictate to regions and clubs, we do strongly recommend that, for the health and wellbeing of our membership, the advice of the Government is heeded.’

‘We do not recommend training camps or competitions take place with members from different clubs.’

Clubs with upcoming Licensed Meets should take account of this advice.
British Swimming have now also cancelled their events in March/April 2020.
British Summer Championships (21-26 July).

After consultation with our Home Nation partners, we have decided to suspend the published Qualifying Window dates and process with immediate effect. Once we have had an opportunity to assess the viability of the summer competitions and the feasibility of staging such events, we will advise the wider swimming community of the updated invite process for
these Championships.’

Update from Committee
Posted by Sally on 16 March
The committee would like to reassure everyone that we are keeping abreast of all updates from both the UK government and Swim England with regard to the coronavirus outbreak.

Due to the seriousness of this virus to vulnerable members of our club we would stress that anyone who believes they may have come in contact with anyone who is either infected or is self-isolating should not attend training for the recommended fortnight.

Training will continue until such times as we are advised otherwise, by either authorities or by the pool. If you are attending training the advice from Swim England is:

“Competitors should shower before and after entering the water, while spectators and volunteers should regularly wash their hands for 20 seconds using soap and water or a sanitiser gel.

“Most importantly, if you feel unwell, please do not attend events or training and seek appropriate medical advice.”

Swim England has issued the following advice regarding novel coronavirus (COVID-19).

The health and wellbeing of anyone who takes part in any aquatic activity is of paramount importance to everyone at Swim England.

Swim England is currently following the latest guidance from the Government and Public Health England and is advising its members, clubs, learn to swim providers and volunteers to do the same.

At this time, Swim England is continuing to plan for events as normal.

However, the national governing body will be following the latest information and assessing risk as appropriate. Specific guidance regarding forthcoming Swim England events will be issued as necessary to those who are due to attend.

Due to the ongoing spread of novel coronavirus, there have been a number of calls to Swim England about whether it is safe to still go swimming.

The Pool Water Treatment and Advisory Group (PWTAG) has been in contact with Public Health England regarding novel coronavirus.

A spokesperson for PWTAG said: “Public health opinion is that it is generally safe to go swimming at this time.

“Water and the chlorine within swimming pools will help to kill the virus.

“However, visitors to swimming pools are reminded to shower before using the pool, to shower on leaving the pool and to follow the necessary hygiene precautions when visiting public places to help reduce the risk of infection.”

These include washing your hands for at least 20 seconds, cover your mouth
Land Training is Starting Again
Posted by lisa on 11 March
As from Friday, 13th March Head Coach Stuart is recommencing the land training sessions in the leisure centre. All swimmers from all squads are able to join in - just turn up. Sessions run from 7:15pm until 8:00pm.

Those attending should wear suitable clothing and footwear for exercise and bring a drink. Anyone already having one of the stretch bands should bring them with you to the first session.

The purpose of dry land training for swimmers is to improve the swimmer’s power, athleticism, and overall speed in the pool.

Whilst these sessions are fun, it is important for the whole group that individuals behave responsibly. Anyone who is considered to be a disruption may be asked to leave the session.
