Return to Lifesaving

Lifesaving will return to Pool on Friday 14th May 6:30pm - 7:30pm

Covid restrictions still apply - you need to arrive Pool Ready , wear a mask on entering the leisure centre & must social distance while waiting outside.

Urgent Return to swimming 8/4/21

This morning 8 April DCLT informed me that the pool time that we were given to understand would be available for Armthorpe at Rossington was not now available as they had allocated it to DARTES. To say I was annoyed was an understatement. After many conversations with DARTES who have been extremely helpful and have given up two of their training sessions to accommodate us please see new session times at Rossington as follows:

Speed 1 (Junior) - Fridays 6.00-7.30

Saturdays 11.00-12.00

Speed 2(senior) Saturdays-12.00-1.30

Sundays-2.00-3.30

Please do not amend your standing orders at this time

Please note that unfortunately Neither pre-speed nor Lifesaving will take place until we return to Armthorpe.

I look forward to seeing you all next weekend and many thanks to DARTES for their help.
