After the government announcement earlier this week, that all Leisure facilities are to close until the 2nd Dec, we have no choice but to cancel all Sharks training sessions for the foreseeable future.
The decision has been taken, with the safety of all in mind, to stop training with immediate effect. Once we are given a date to recommence we will be in touch.
STAY HOME - PROTECT THE NHS - SAVE LIVES
Thank you for your continued support in these difficult times.

Mental Health Awareness
Posted by lisa on 01 November
Club Captains - Annie Wilson, Tom Crow, Lizzie Mccallum and Rohan Addlesee, along with some of the coaching team and team managers attended a Youth Mental Health Awareness course.
The course was an introduction to mental health and the factors that can affect young peoples wellbeing.
The aim of the course was to raise awareness, and offer an introduction to mental health and mental health issues in young people.
At the end of the course participants are Mental Health Aware and are able to:
1. Define mental health and emotional wellbeing.
2. Relate to young people's experiences.
3. Recognise some signs of mental health distress.
4. Start a supportive conversation about mental ill health.
5. Practice self care.
There is still a stigma around mental health issues, and this may stop someone seeking help. Knowing about the symptoms and effective treatments can promote awareness, increase understanding and empower people to seek help. Knowing how to respond to someone experiencing mental health can increase a persons confidence to approach and offer help.
South Axholme Sharks are looking to work with MHFA ( Mental Health First Aid) England to deliver an education programme for members in the future.
Covid 19 - update
Posted by lisa on 17 October
Following the recent changes made by the government relating to the tier system for guidance on Covid-19 can we please ask that you stress the importance of social distancing to swimmers.
The pool is currently in tier 1 (medium risk) but as we border South Yorkshire and Bassetlaw who are in tier 2 (high risk) social distancing is so important.
We have swimmers from all corners of the Isle and who attend a variety of schools/colleges within both tiers 1 and 2. School formed bubbles are irrelevant at swimming and everyone should social distance without having to be reminded, coaches and pool staff should not need to have to keep reminding swimmers.
We thank you all in your support of the club returning to swimming and would appreciate your help on this matter.
Also could I ask that if you have swimmers who are self isolating or unable to make a session for other reasons you drop us an email so we know who we are expecting, registers are kept for track and trace regulations.
Sharks return home to Epworth
Posted by lisa on 08 October
After a long 6 months away from training, it has been fantastic to see so many keen swimmers wanting to return to training at Epworth, the home of South Axholme Sharks.
Although training sessions are very different, to what they where before. its time to start working hard, improving fitness and preparing for the time when competing can commence again.
All swimmers have been issued with a Return to swimming Guidance, it is very important that they adhere to it, for the safety of everyone concerned.
Swimmers are allocated a session and they will remain in those bubbles for the foreseeable future. Siblings will attend in the same session to minimise risk.
If a swimmer has been asked to self isolate from school, college or work, they must not attend any sessions while in isolation. The Coaching Team will be taking a register at the beginning of each session, please let them know if you are not attending.
Payments for swimming are now back, as before paid through Epworth Pool, and should be paid by the 7th of each month via BACS or standing order.
If you have any questions or would like any further advice please contact the Club.
Thank you for your continued support
County Championships postponed.
Posted by lisa on 08 October
The County Championship due to take place in February 2021 have been postponed due to the current situation.
A copy of the letter from Barry Saunders, can be found below.
County Swimming Championship 2021
Swimmers and Parents/Carers will realise that it would not be possible to deliver the County Swimming Championships in February 2021 with the current social distancing rules in place.
The indications are that the current restrictions will not be relaxed by HM Government in the foreseeable future.
It should be presumed, at this stage,that the County Championships will not take place as planned.
Should the situation improve, which is highly unlikely, we will publish an update as soon as practicable.
We anticipate that it may be possible to hold the County Championships after the Regional Championships, in late May/early June 2021.
I realise that this will be a disappointment to many swimmers but the safety of our members must take priority over all other considerations.

Important information regarding training at Crowle Pool
Posted by Sally on 25 September
Following the recent government guidelines the following changes have been put in place at Axholme North Leisure Centre. Please can you pass this on to your club members.
1. Anyone entering the building aged 16+ must scan into the centre using the NHS Covid-19 app where possible, we have the QR codes around the centre and displayed on the outdoor areas. If someone cannot download the app or doesn't have a smart phone we also have another option of signing into the building, but they must visit reception to do this. This will take longer but unfortunately we can no longer use our booking records for test and trace.
2. Anyone entering the building aged 11+ must wear a face covering in corridors and changing areas, these can be removed during the activity. Coaches may also remove their face covering when coaching an activity indoors. For those that are exempt due to medical reasons we will not need to see proof.
Important information - Covid 19
Posted by lisa on 21 September
We are aware that there has been a confirmed case of Covid 19 at South Axholme Academy, and that some children from various year groups have been asked to isolate until the 5th Oct.
As with anyone isolating swimmers must NOT attend the swimming sessions held by South Axholme Sharks.
If you could let us know if this affects your child, we would be grateful.
Thank you for your cooperation at this time.
