Dear Club Members,
For those athletes who are swimming in the Level X Meet on Saturday 3rd July they can gain entry to the pool at 7:50am via the usual fire door at the aquatics – please ensure you all socially distance outside of the fire exit to comply with our covid-19 regulations. We aim to get everyone into the pool and ready to start their warm-ups just after 8am therefore please ensure you are all on time. As per usual practice all athletes will have their temperatures taken upon entry, any parents or volunteer will also be required to have their temperatures taken to gain entry – you will also be required to remove any outdoor foot wear whilst walking on poolside.
As there are no spectators please ensure you wait till your athlete has successfully gained entry before leaving the vicinity.
Athletes are to leave immediately after completing their last swim, they are not required or permitted to stay beyond this time. The only swimmers permitted to remain at poolside following completion of swims are those whose parents are kindly timekeeping or volunteering at the meet.
For those parents who have been given special authorisation via myself to gain entry to the pool due to a health condition you can access the pool at the same time as the athlete – you will be sat in the nearest socially distanced seat from them. Everyone must ensure they arrive pool ready and shoes are to be removed upon entry to the building.
Everyone Active have agreed that athletes who need to get changed from training costumes worn in the warm up into racing costumes can access the changing areas to do so.
Athletes are permitted to bring their mobile phone (at their own risk) with them to the meet so they can make contact with you once they are finished their swims to arrange collection. I have received with thanks the mobile phone numbers of those parents who have requested a phone call from our Meet Manager (Tracy Barnett) when your athlete is ready to be collected. For those parents who have not requested this we expect that you will manage the collection of your athlete directly with them if you have not been in touch with me as requested in the last communication.
Parents will be able to access the start lists which will be published after 6pm this evening, you will also be able to access the live results on Saturday via the following link:https://www.cityofsunderlandasc.co.uk/webpages/index.htm.
Please ensure all athletes have everything they require for the meet – including fluids and lunch if they are there all day.
We expect the level x meet will be finished by 3.30pm at the latest.
