Level 2 RealSwim Centre Procedures and Guidelines

  1. At level 2 we will be maintaining physical distancing as per the 2m guidelines. We encourage all swimmers to come with the mindset of touching as little as possible. We will be actively cleaning between swimmers, however the more cautious we all are, the lower the risk.If you are hiring the pool; the supervisor will be behind the office door, you can communicate with them to set up flume requirements while in the shallow end.
    For 121 coaching; please note we will still be maintaining physical distancing to give all of our clients peace of mind. This includes changes to the way we do video analysis review. Please ask us if you have any questions about this.We ask that you please respect the below procedures and rules to enable us to continue supporting all swimmers during this time.

    • We are looking forward to welcoming you, however please do not attend if you are feeling unwell, if someone you have come into contact with is feeling unwell, or if you have not obeyed the current NZ Government guidelines.
    • Parking is available directly out the front of the pool building, please drive in slowly.
    • All access to the Pool Office is prohibited.
    • Entry and exit for all swimmers is through the side door of the pool. The pool door will be closed behind you to maintain air and pool temperatures as best we can during the cooler months.
    • All swimmers using the facility are to arrive ready to swim, with togs on under clothes.
    • Please sanitize your hands on arrival with your own sanitizer (this reduces the need for people to use a common bottle).
    • Do not touch the entry gate or pool entry door, both will be pre-opened for your easy contact-less access.
    • If you would like, you can use the shower poolside before entering the pool.
    • Enter the pool carefully, there is no hand rail on the steps.
    • There is a toilet at the far end of the building, we would prefer you access this during or after your swim, not before.
    • Please do not bring a spectator with you, unless they are willing to sit in the car.

    After your swim, you have two options;

    1. If you would like your experience to remain contact-less, after your swim or lesson you can use the poolside shower and then exit through the door which you entered back to your car.
    2. Alternatively, if you feel comfortable you will be able to access the shower room, which will be cleaned after use. Please note the dry room is off limits.
We look forward to seeing you soon!
