Welcome to Brighouse Swimming Club

To all Brighouse Swimming Club members and their families

Returning to the Club

To All Parents / Guardians

July 2020

Firstly, we hope that you and your family are keeping safe and well.


We hope, by now, that you are all aware that Brighouse Swimming Club was awarded The Queen’s Award for Voluntary Service on the 2nd June 2020.  This is a fantastic achievement for the Club and we would like to take this opportunity to thank all our hardworking volunteers.  We hope to be able to celebrate at a later date.


We have now received some guidance from Swim England regarding re-opening of swimming pools which will look very different.  We are working closely with Calderdale Leisure Services to ensure we operate in a safe environment as the safety of everyone is very important.   In line we Swim England guidelines we have appointed Rob Haines as COVID-19 Liaison Officer.


The Club are looking at a potential start date of Monday, the 7th September 2020 but this is subject to discussion with Calderdale and completion of risk assessments to ensure that procedures are in place for the safety of all swimmers and spectators.  There will be a number of changes to the way we operate and likely to include the number of sessions we can offer; the number of swimmers we can accommodate each sessions; how we run sessions, the way we enter/exit the building and our poolside/changing village procedures.


At this stage we do not know exactly what pool time we will be allocated or the specific class/session details but we are hoping to run sessions for as many swimmers as possible.


Due to the possibility of reduced pool time and reduced swimmers, we may have to consider an increase in price for lessons to cover pool hire charges to avoid the club running at a loss.  This would be regrettable but necessary for the future of the Club.


To assist with lesson planning, we would be grateful if you could complete the Survey which will help the teachers allocate a suitable lesson.  Please note that we cannot guarantee a time, day or swimming teacher but we will do our best.


Please return the completed survey as soon as possible but no later than Sunday 19th July 2020. 


Thank you for your continued support and please keep safe during these uncertain times.
