Hurrah!! We are back!

Posted by with No Comments

Hurrah!! We are back! After nearly four months out of the water we are pleased to confirm that training will commence on 25 July at Surrey Sports Park and Spectrum Leisure Centre. Thank you all for your genuine support and patience during this difficult period.

While we are excited to be returning to training and to start working together towards our goals and objectives it is important that swimmers and parents are comfortable with our new training environment. While the club’s vision to help every athlete achieve their potential hasn’t changed due to the impact of Coronavirus, our training environment and the way we work together will be very different during this period.

You will all receive a letter from the Management Team within the next few days detailing the specifics about our re-entry to training and an invitation for you to return. Our Covid Officers will also be in touch outlining the steps you will need to take to return and stay safe at all times. Additionally we hope to have a few videos available on our You Tube channel (GCTV) that should help with the process.

Our most important consideration during this time is to ensure that everyone involved with the Club stays safe! This will not be compromised and is at the heart of every decision we make during our first phase of returning to training. As such we will be returning in a phased approach in line with Swim England and government recommendations. This first phase of returning to training will include the 5 weeks between the 25 July and 31st August.

If you are not a member yet of Guildford City Swimming Club and want to trial during this period then please contact us https://www.gcsc.co.uk/join-us/. We would be happy to help in any way we can.
