Saffron Seals’ training sessions have been re-started in accordance with Swim England and 1Life guidelines, protocols and restrictions.   See below the two documents produced to provide information for our swimmers:

COVID Guidance for Parents and Swimmers_Post COVID-19 return processes and protocols

COVID Guidance for Coaches and Helpers_Post COVID-19 return processes and protocols

The timetable for training bubbles is given under Sessions and Locations.


1Life Protocols

1 Life have introduced additional safety measures at their Centres with immediate effect. These follow on from the updated Government requirements from the beginning of September.

All swimmers aged 12 and over must wear face masks unless they are poolside or changing. That means when walking into the centre to the pool area and from the changing rooms to the exits.

All coaches and adults entering the centre must also adhere to these new requirements.

LBLC may refuse entry to anyone not complying with these requirements so remember those face masks!


Please can we take this opportunity to thank all the swimmers for their efforts in complying with the new processes we implemented on our return to swimming. However, we would like to remind everyone that they should follow the one-way signs, including poolside, and that the changing rooms are simply an opportunity to get dry, get changed, get out. Unfortunately, they cannot be used for social interaction!

Many thanks for your support with this.

The Seals Committee
