Safeguarding Video

Swimmers and parents are very much encouraged to watch the safeguarding video recently watched by the Squads, addressing potential issues surrounding the use of mobile phones on poolside and vicinity of training venues.

The contents have been verified by Swim England and the Independent Safeguarding Officer. Our thanks goes to our previous Club Welfare Officer, Kevin Gillard for his work on this. Going forward, the use of mobile phones will remain prohibited at poolside, all team galas, at all times in changing rooms, and during land training. In respect of Open Meets, swimmers will be permitted to use their phones to listen to music, and for the occasional text or call. The use of mobile phones to access all social media and games will remain prohibited.

Any breach of the above rules will be treated extremely seriously by the Club.

Everyone's co-operation is very much appreciated in ensuring all swimmers remain safe.
