Warm down pool –The learner pool will be available for warm down during the meet. We request that the coaches help ensure that this is used appropriately or it may be withdrawn.
Poolside Access – In line with the Swim England safeguarding regulations only coaches with poolside passes, officials & designated meet helpers are allowed on poolside or in the changing rooms. Can we request that all parents wait for their swimmers in the café or entrance foyer.
Bags- It will be very crowded on poolside so we request that swimmers only bring small bags onto poolside and use the lockers in the changing rooms. Lockers use a refundable £1. Please do not place bags on the air vents as this causes a significant rise in poolside temperature.
Backstroke ledges will be available for the start of backstroke races. We understand many swimmers will be unfamiliar with these so the time keepers will check if each swimmer wishes to use them. Please advise your swimmers to let the time keeper know if they don’t wish to use the ledges.

A path from this car park leads around the main hall at the Mountbatten centre and to the entrance by the learner pool.
