      The benefits of joining a swim team at an early age will last a lifetime. Besides the comfort of knowing that your little angel will be okay when he or she goes over to a friend’s house who happens to have a pool in the backyard, there are numerous other advantages.

                                                                                            CORONAVIRUS PANDEMIC STATEMENT                                                                19th March, 2020

Following an Executive Meeting of our Governing Body, Swim England, this evening, they have issued the following Statement -

Following Prime Minister Boris Johnson’s announcement on Monday, it is Swim Englands interpretation that Club activities falls into the “Public Gathering” category and therefore it is strongly advising Clubs to CANCEL or POSTPONE all activities including events, until the end of May.

Jane Nickerson, Chief Executive of Swim England added, “we strongly advise on what we believe is the best course of action in the interest of our Coaches, Teachers & Athletes”.

Swim England will review this on an on-going basis and continue to provide updates.

In view of this, the Committee or Rochford Swimming Club (RADS) has taken the decision to fall inline with the Governing Body and suspend all training with immediate effect until the end of May or until further notice.

The Club has not taken this decision lightly, but we do have a duty of care for our Members and families.

We will of course keep you all updated on any information that we receive.  This will take the Club a few days to digest so may I ask you respectfully do not email Claire Bailey regarding any financial matters, we will, in due course post a statement.
