Update 24th August, 2021

 

We are still unable to confirm a resumption date for our classes in Clontarf.  CRC are in the process of replacing the air handling unit in the pool. Unfortunately I don't have any information as to how that project is progressing.  I would suggest that Parent's contact the CRC directly with a view to getting some definitive information on the completion of works. We will continue to push for more information and we will contact Parent's as soon as we have an update. 

 

In early August CRC 'texted' us to say that the pool in Clontarf continues to remain closed. The only additional information that has been provided is that an update will be posted to the Central Remedial Clinic website when there are details relating to reopening. We will continue to try and get more definitive information but lets hope that we can get some positive news in the coming weeks.  A bulletin will issue when more details are available. 

Older Updates

 

On the weekend of 29th May 2021, Swim Ireland announced that they had secured agreement from the Government that swimming lessons could resume in Ireland. As a result of this we will be able to resume most of our classes in Northside swimming pool starting from Tuesday 8th June, 2021.  The position on our classes in Clontarf is that CRC is in the process of replacing an Air Handling Unit in the swimming pool. Unfortunately therefore, we can't resume our Clontarf arrangements before Summer break.  However this is all very positive news which points toward a return to normality in September.

We continue to deal with CRC and Northside with a view to getting all children back in the water as soon as possible. A bulletin will issue as soon as we have more information.

Covid 19 measures in operation as of  June, 2021

 

Beginner's Group 

 

Ideally Parents of beginner level children should bring their children to the pool, pre changed and in their swimsuits with suitable clothing e.g. track suit / dressing robe. This will facilitate a quick entry into the water and prevent excessive use of the changing area.  

Parent’s should if possible exit the pool area once their child is under the supervision of their swimming teacher.

Beginners getting changed will see their swimming teacher at the side of the pool. They should get changed at one of the numbered stations beside their teacher.

Children will remain on the poolside until the teacher is in a position to begin the formal lesson and instructs them to enter the water.

 

On a temporary basis we will end the beginners group after 40 minutes. At this stage the beginner’s groups will be instructed to leave the pool.  Parent’s should be ready to change their children after 40 minutes (in the changing rooms) and exit the complex as quickly as possible. We are unable to remove our other groups from the water until Parent’s and beginners have left the premises.

Improvers and Advanced Groups

If possible Parents  should bring their children to the pool, pre changed and in their swimsuits with suitable clothing e.g. track suit / dressing rob. This will facilitate a quick entry into the water and prevent excessive use of the changing area.  Parent’s should if possible exit the pool area once their child is under the supervision of their swimming teacher.

Parents should if possible, exit the pool area once their child is under the supervision of      their swimming teacher.

 

Children will remain on the poolside until the teacher is in a position to begin the formal lesson and instructs them to enter the water.

On completion of the lesson, children will be instructed to leave the swimming pool and to change as quickly as possible.
