Pool Etiquette

Eating Before Swimming

Please, do not feed your child before swimming. Undigested food causes sickness. Any food should be eaten at least two hours before the start of a lesson.


If your child is ill they should not swim, if they have had a diarrhoeal type illness they should not swim until they have fully recovered.

We have a flexible system that allows you to rearrange lessons, if in doubt, please postpone the lesson.

Shower Before You Swim

You can help us keep the water sparkling by taking a rinse in the shower before you swim. It is now compulsory for children in lessons to shower before they swim.

Etiquette in the changing rooms

Please remind your children if they are changing alone that no clothes should be left in the changing cubicles, they should use the lockers provided or the wall hooks. Boys over seven are not permitted to change in the ladies.
