JANUARY VACATION SWIMMING LESSONS 2018

Stormy Weather Procedure

NB: In all weather situations our staff will be at the pool.  In the event of thunderstorms we are under the guidance of the Wesley Sports Club staff who will close the pool if it is deemed unsafe.  If the pool is closed we will conduct dry land lifesaving activities for the lessons.  The Sports Club will make the decision as to when it is safe enough to reopen the pool.

fbPlease also LIKE US on the Watkins Southside Swimming Facebook page.  This page will be used for emergency notices such as pool closures during thunderstorms.

PLEASE NOTE: THE MORNING LIFESAVING BLOCK WILL NOW BE HELD IN BLOCK 1 OF THE JANUARY VACATION LESSONS.
