COVID-19 - Training update

2020-03-22

Please see the following update regarding COVID-19 and training

To all our United families

We hope you are all well and staying safe during these uncertain and worrying times. Our priority as a club is the health and safety of all our people - our swimmers, their families and our coaches.  Given the increased risk and uncertainty around community transmission, we consider that the appropriate course of action is to pause training until we are able to get a better understanding of the situation and the consequences.  We are constantly reviewing the situation and will continue to update any developments.

We are cancelling all training at all venues for the next three days - from and including today and through to and including Wednesday 25th March.  

We think it is essential that our squads keep in touch - both with each other and with the coaches - so we will be using an app called GroupMe to communicate regularly.  Your squad manager will set up the “Group” and will provide further information on this over the next couple of days.   GroupMe can be downloaded on phones as well as used on the internet.  We hope this will be some comfort for the swimmers to stay connected and it will also be used to plan some fitness from home as and when required.

Please stay safe and healthy and follow all advice given.  

Any questions then please email me.

Best regards

Simon
