Following a change in the advice given by Swim England, Durham County Council have announced the closure of Chester-le-Street Leisure Centre from tonight to both the public and clubs that use its facilities. Gateshead MBC has also closed Birtley Swimming Centre. Castleview School have closed their pool from Friday 20 March.
This means that all swimming training has been cancelled.
We currently expect CrossFit on Saturday to go ahead as normal.
We are putting together a contingency plan for A, B1, B2 and B3 squads. This will be sent out as soon as possible and we expect it to start from Monday 23 March.
We are hoping to be able to put together a plan for Small Pool C, D and E squads but we can not confirm this just yet.
Please do not cancel your direct debit mandate with us. These are uncertain times but if we need to make any changes to squad fees, they can be done automatically by ourselves at any time up to 1 April.
We’re deeply sorry to all members for disruption to training and we will be in touch again soon.
