The Government published guidance on 1 Dec 2020 which sets out information for the public and sport providers on how to participate in grassroots sport and physical activity during COVID-19 restrictions. The local restriction tiers which apply to areas across England will determine which restrictions apply and how you can safely participate.
The Covid-19 Toolkit is regularly updated and links to resources, including webinar recordings and guidance on group numbers, which will help ensure all our disciplines, clubs, members and workforce can return to action when permitted to do so, subject to evidence.
Swim England updated its 'Returning to Pools Guidance' documents on 2 Dec 2020 and also its coronavirus frequently asked questions with its interpretation of what the restrictions mean for facilities post-national lockdown, how it affects our sports and learn to swim lessons, travel and the impact on clubs.
Return to Sport guidance for your disciplines and tier: remember to stay up to date!

Missed the Stronger Affiliation Deadline?
Each Club Stronger Affiliation submission had to be uploaded onto the Swim England portal well before the deadline for approval of 1 December 2020.
Failure to submit all pieces of evidence will result in a Club being unable to re-affiliate to Swim England and Swim England South West which means that they and their members will be uninsured and their membership will be unable to train, compete, coach or officiate.
If you missed the deadline and need any support or advice please do not hesitate to contact the Regional office (firstname.lastname@example.org).
