Update from Swim England regarding the Coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak

On Tuesday17th March Swim England updated their advice regarding guidance for members during this Coronavirus outbreak. 

Prime Minister Boris Johnson announced on Monday 16 March a range of measures to help combat the spread of the coronavirus (COVID-19).

Having further reviewed the guidance, it is Swim England’s interpretation that club activity falls into the ‘public gathering’ category and therefore it is strongly advising clubs to consider cancelling or postponing activity – including events – until the end of May.

Swim schools should also make an informed decision on future lessons based on the current information from the Government.

Swim England will suspend talent activities across all disciplines with immediate effect, having already announced the decision to cancel all national events until the end of May.

This will include all international and domestic camps, competitions and related activities such as coach conferences across all aquatic sports.

British Swimming, which has also cancelled and postponed a number of events, is speaking to its elite athletes regarding training in the forthcoming weeks.
