Mini Olympics

The Mini Olympic Squad here at Splish Splash Swim Ltd is for advanced swimmers who want a flavour of competitive swimming.

 

Want to swim at the Olympics? Here at Splish Splash, we aim to provide pupils and swimmers with every opportunity we can provide. Our new Mini Olympics Squad has been designed for the Advanced Swimmer who have completed their Swim England National Plan Stage 5 Award and can swim 25m on all three main strokes.
The session will give pupils an insight into competitive swimming, learning how to start, turn, race and continue to develop a competitive swim stroke.
Our local club talent officers, will come down to our sessions to identify swimmers that they would like to give trials to and also provide parents with more information on the local Swimming Clubs.
Splish Splash’s Mini Olympic Squad, will also have the opportunity to take part and enter in a Pre Comp Gala at one of England’s main swim venues up in Sheffield. The gala’s will give the pupils fantastic opportunity and experience in what competitive swimming is all about!
This session is also aimed at the advanced swimmer who would still like to gain experience in the above but does not want to progress to club swimming. The session will provide stamina and more advanced swim skills for those who want a session just for fitness!

Welcome Back

We are really looking forward to re-opening Splish Splash Swim and welcoming all our swimmers, parents, friends and colleagues back to the pool. We’ve are extremely lucky to have received support and good well wishes from you all on reopening!!

The schools have been working extremely hard over lockdown to ensure the pools we use are ready and everything is in place for a safe environment for all when we restart our lessons.

Below are details that have been put into place for our safe return back to the pool!

As I’m sure you can appreciate, we’ve had to adapt various elements of our pools due to the current circumstances and to protect the safety of our swimmers, parents and colleagues.

Please ensure you read this information thoroughly before starting back swimming. All the measures detailed below are based on government and Swim England guidance as well as our own risk assessments.

Swimming Lessons

The general measures detailed below will apply.

We will run fewer lessons within the pool at one time to allow for both children and swimming teachers to social distance. This may affect the times we are able to offer customers.

Please arrive 10 minutes early to your lesson and wait outside in the allocated area.

On arriving, there will be a one-way system in place, directing you and your child to the lesson.

Only one parent should attend with a child, to reduce the number of people in the building.

Parents must wear a face mask on entering as well as removing outdoor shoes before they walk onto poolside.

Pupils will be required to arrive for lessons readily changed in their costumes, hats and goggles. This will help all teachers start their lessons on time.

Swim Teachers will maintain social distancing from pupils where they are able possible to do so.

All swimmers must bring their own equipment (please see check list below).

Lesson times will remain at 25 minutes (unless stated).

No changing facilities will be available at this present time.

If anyone has any concerns with the above measures, we please ask you to contact Vicky on admin@splishsplashswim.co.uk.

 

We look forward to seeing you all soon

 

Vicky and the Splish Splash Team
