Welcome to Brighouse Swimming Club

To all Brighouse Swimming Club members and their families

Returning to the Club

September 2020

Following an unprecedented and lengthy absence due to Covid 19, the committee are now in a position to provide information regarding a return to swimming, Firstly the committee would like to thank all members for their continued support and patience over the last 6 months. Thanks are also extended to the members of the club who have dedicated their time over the summer to planning a safe return.

The club is intending to begin sessions w/c 5th October, although this is subject to review. Our aim is always to provide opportunities to the widest range of swimmers possible. However, on planning our return we have had a number of issues to consider. First and foremost, has been the safety of all our members and also the operators and users of Brighouse Swimming Pool. We have also had to consider the financial viability of the Club. An additional and unanticipated issue has been the current closure of the learner pool. At the present time we are therefore only able to open with a limited capacity of 80 swimmers and a one hour pool time.

The vast majority of our swimmers have indicated that they would like to return but this is not possible in the current climate. Parents/Carers will be contacted by 18th September, if we can offer you a place. We understand many swimmers will be disappointed if we are unable to accommodate you at this time. We are also disappointed that we are not able to offer sessions to more swimmers

We are aware that parents/carers may want to fit the swimming session with other activities. However, due to the restrictions we are working with, the session offered could be on a different time or day than previously. Unfortunately, we do not have the flexibility to offer alternatives,

We will keep the current arrangements under regular review and contact members as soon as we are able to increase our numbers.
