Swimmer drop-offs and pick-ups

See our policies page for GCSC Changing Room and collection policy – please remind yourself about the details which are in place to ensure our swimmers’ safety. At session drop-off time, please follow these safety measures:

  • Swimmers of primary school age: Primary school-aged children remain the responsibility of their parents before and after Club sessions. Please do not allow your children to go to poolside at any pool unless there is a GCSC coach in attendance. Our coaches often have to move between squads and venues, so please wait with your swimmers off poolside until a coach arrives to take the session.
  • Swimmers of secondary school age: Please remind your swimmers not to go to poolside unless there is a coach or lifeguard in attendance. They should wait off poolside until a coach or lifeguard arrives.

Finally, well done to our swimmers who achieved their qualifying times for nationals and para nationals at Team Bath’s Level 2 Meet at Millfield this weekend. All your hard work has paid off – we are all very proud of you.

As always, any questions, do get in touch.

Best wishes

Kerry and Julie GCSC Communications Team
