We have great news. We are pleased to announce that we are beginning Phase 2 in the reopening of our swimming lessons at both Grimsby Leisure Centre and Cleethorpes Leisure Centre on Monday, October 12th 2020.
The phase 2 return continues to follow Government guidance and is subject to change. Based on the current position at the time of sending this message, our phase 2 plan is for the return of the following lessons:
- Parent and Child;
- Stages 1 to 4; and
- Stage 5 and above (for ages 8 and below)
In order to adhere to government guidelines, the rules regarding parental supervision varies depending on the age of the child who is swimming. We ask that parents and carers work with us on these new regulations.
Children under 8 years
Children under the age of 8 require a chaperone within our premises and for the parent or guardian to be readily available to help their children within the changing rooms.
This age range/ability also require the use of swimming aids, it is important to note that parents must fit and check all swimming aids before the children enter the pool area. All guidance and fitting instructions will be sent out a week before lessons commence.
Parents / carers will be required to get their child dressed and ready quickly and efficiently and also use the lockers provided. You will then need to go to the designated waiting area to commence lessons (this will be a viewing area, unfortunately seating is not available).
Children over 8 years
Guidance currently does not permit spectating and therefore parents/guardians of children aged 8 or over will be required to drop off and collect children after their lessons.
We ask that the parents of these children do not remain in the building and we ask you to drop off your child/children and to continue to wait outside for them. You are however advised to stay in your car or car park whilst lessons are on.
What to do now:
Please contact the teams to discuss your child’s new allocation and payments by Friday 2nd October 2020.
Phone during the times of 10:30am and 3:30pm Monday to Friday, or if you are unable to call during these times, please drop us an email.
