2021-22 Caves Beach SLSC Proficiency Requirements

Our next Preliminary Evaluations for our Under 8's - Under 13's will be held on Saturday the 13th November 2021 at Swansea Swim Centre starting from 9am. 

Each age group has been given a timeslot and it is very important that you show up in the allotted timeslot for your child to be able to complete their evaluation.

Due to the very strict guidelines set out by Swansea Pool and the Public Health Orders we will be conducting our Preliminary Evaluations in the following manner:

Parents will be unable to enter the pool with their child, we are simply asking you to walk them to the gate, pay their entry fee, and sign them in, then please head back outside and once your child has finished we will escort them out to you.

This is done as we are strictly limited to groups of 20.

Please do not ask us to make an exception and please do not raise this issue with the staff at the pool, this is a decision that the club has made to ensure we comply with all rules and guidelines set out by Swansea Swim Centre, the Public Health Orders and our own Covid Safe Plans.

We are asking that all children arrive ready to go, that is swimmers on, goggles and cap on, and a towel for afterward. 

Once finished at the pool, those in the under 9's and up will be asked to attend Caves Beach to complete their Competition Evaluation should they wish to do so. These will be at allocated times also.

Under 6's and Under 7's are not required to attend the pool or beach, their evaluations will be completed in the first couple of weeks at nippers.

Times for the pool are as follows:

Under 8's - 9am

Under 9's & 10's - 9.15am

Under 11's, 12's & 13's - 9.40am

Times for the beach are as follows:

Under 9's & 10's - 9.45am

Under 11's, 12's & 13's - 10am

Please do not attend the beach if you have not completed the Preliminary Evaluation at the pool.

If your child can not make it this Saturday and they attend squad training/ swimming lessons they are able to complete the Preliminary Evaluations during this time and be signed off by an accredited swim coach using the 2021-22 Pool Swim Form. Once completed please return the signed form to either Stacey or Erin or emailed to
