Diving & Training Squad Closures

Home | Diving & Training Squad Closures

Coronavirus guidance is ever changing, even within the same day, and you will of course be aware of the Government’s latest decision to close schools from Friday.

Although Swim England have not yet ruled that swimming should be stopped, we have a responsibility as a Committee to risk assess our own situation, putting the health of all our swimmers, coaches and volunteers before all else.

Taking all things into consideration, we have made the very difficult decision to suspend all diving and swimming including squads with immediate effect. We can assure you that this was not a decision that we have taken lightly but, we believe, it is the right thing to do.

As I am sure you can imagine, there are many aspects that we are still working through and we will be back in touch very soon detailing the more practical matters of what this means for all our squad members.

In the meantime, we just want to say thank you to you all – we realise that these are difficult times and the support we have been shown means alot.
