Pool Training

Great news! Pool training has now resumed again at Pyle Pool but there will still be a number of changes that we will all have to follow.


  • The are a maximum of 30 people allowed at the pool at any one time.

  • This will include a lifeguard and 2 coaches and will mean that 27 swimmers are allowed.

  • If more coaches are needed this will reduce the number of swimmers and numbers will be confirmed weekly.

  • All swimmers must be paid up Club Members.

  • A booking system will be in place to confirm the numbers of swimmers attending each week and this will be through our WhatsApp Group.

  • We will need to meet outside the pool at 19:45 for registration and payment and will also ask you all a few health questions and take and record your temperature.

  • We will be called into the pool at 19:55 by the lifeguard and enter the pool through the main doors.

  • All swimmers must come changed ready to swim and must bring a bathrobe or long coat as the changing rooms cannot be used.

  • The are yellow spots 2 metres apart around the pool where swimmers can leave their bags.

  • You can only enter the pool at the shallow end.

  • Diving is only allowed by climbing out of the pool at the deep end as walking around the pool in not allowed, except to collect you belongings when you leave the pool.

  • We will leave the pool the same way we entered through the front doors.

  • Toilets are only available at Reception and only one person can use them at a time.

  • The balcony is closed for spectators until further notice.

  • Payments can be made by bank transfer or by having exact money as change will not be available.

  • Hand sanitiser will be provided before and after training and please ensure that you use it.

This is a lot of information but it will help to ensure that pool training can resume safely, but all the coaches are looking forward to seeing you all back at the pool. If you have any questions please ask!
