Information for BWSC L3 Open Meet 5th & 6th April 2014

Written by RRSC. Posted in News

Dear all,

Please note that due to works at the Garrison swimming pool, BWSC has provided the following important information pack for the upcoming gala. They have also issued the following notice:


In order to comply with Fire Safety Regs it is necessary to reduce the number of personnel who have poolside access. I am writing to you because we need to reduce the number of poolside passes for your club from 2 to 1 each day. However for each day I will also issue you with a 'Sportshall Pass' for a coach/chaperone who is in the sports hall with the swimmers. As a reminder, the revised arrangements (in place this year only) are as follows:

The swimmers' area has been moved to the sports hall. Swimmers will go between the pool and the sports hall via the pool changing rooms
We will issue your club with 1 'Poolside Pass' (ie Coach Pack) to give your coach access to your swimmers in the sports hall (via the main corridor and public areas) and access to poolside each day. We request your coach leaves poolside during any events when your swimmers are not competing
We will also issue your club with a 'Sportshall Pass' for easier identity for another coach/chaperone. This will not permit access poolside
Both passes will be available for collection upon arrival.

We are striving to make this meet as professional and enjoyable as possible despite the short-notice changes that we are instructed to make. Above all we need to ensure absolute safety for everyone attending the meet during the weekend.

I hope I've explained this sufficiently clearly but do contact me if you still have any questions. Please will you reply to this email to acknowledge the change to your pass arrangement. Upon receipt of your email I will process the relevant refunds for your passes.

Kind regards
