A: Current guidance tells us that a 2m distance should be maintained if it can be, and we want to keep all our customers and staff as safe as is practicably possible.

A:
 We may ask you to wait outside, to maintain a social distance as people are served in reception or swipe through the barriers. Signage will indicate where to queue. Our staff will keep you informed and tell you when you can go in. Due to this, we ask you not to come for your session too early and only 10 minutes before.

Q: Why do I have to Pre Book?
A: We have to monitor how many people are in the gym, classes, pool, running track and sports hall, in order to maintain social distancing guidelines. Pre-booking your session will guarantee your workout at that time.

Q: Can I swipe through the barrier?
A: At Derby Arena and Springwood Leisure Centre, customers will need to swipe through the access gates as normal. By pre-booking, your card will recognise you have booked and allow you to swipe, so there is no need to go to the reception. We will ensure social distancing guidelines are maintained.

All lockers will be out of use (other than those outside the gym at Derby Arena). 

Q: Will I be able to shower?

Q: How many people are allowed in classes at any one time? 
A: This varies at each Centre - Derby Arena 24 places, Queen's 7 Places and Springwood 22 in the sports hall, 15 for indoor cycling.  These numbers may vary as we follow government guidance. 

We advise you to book in advance and if you are not going to attend please cancel your space. We will be monitoring this to ensure there are no regular 'non-attenders'. Also please look at all our three site class programmes if your home centre does not have the class you want to attend.

Swimming 

Q: We ask that swimmers arrive 'Beach Ready'.
A: What we mean by “beach style turn up and swim” is that we ask you to arrive at the pool already wearing your swimming costumes underneath your clothes and having showered at home. We are encouraging swimmers to do this to minimise the time spent in changing areas. Similarly we are encouraging swimmers to shower at home after their swim, again to minimise the time spent in the changing areas after a swim.

On arrival there will be social distanced allocated changing stations on pool side for you to change.

However, changing facilities will still be available for swimmers post swim to change. 

Q: Will showers be available? 
A: We will be trialling the use of showers in May and will be a phased approach, starting with early morning sessions.
7 -7.45am  Lane Swim
8 -8.45am  Lane Swim

There will be 2 showers available in each of the Male and Female Gala Pool changing rooms. Shower’s will be labelled up for use.

We would still encourage customers to shower at home, due to this limited availability. 

Q: How will you ensure social distancing while swimming? 
A: The lane swimming sessions will be for a controlled number of swimmers, depending on the pool in use. Lifeguards will also request that everyone follows our lane Swim Etiquette, which is as follows: 

  • Lane capacity and speed will be indicated on the lane sign, check the lane is not full before entering.
  • Lane Flow - You may be asked by the Lifeguard to change lane when swimming, this is to assist in the flow of swimmers to ensure everyone enjoys their swim. 
  • Entering the pool - When entering the pool lane, wait for at least a 3m distanced gap between yourself and others.
  • Social distancing - Follow social distancing rules whilst swimming, on pool side and around the centre. 
  • Overtaking - To allow someone to overtake you, stop at the end of a lane and face away from them whilst they pass.
  • Resting - To rest climb out of the pool and use the designated seating area, please do not rest in the water.       
  • If you need any help or have questions please ask the Lifeguard. 

Swimming Lessons

A: Yes, but strictly one parent only unless for exceptional circumstances. 

Q: I currently pay a Direct Debit for Learn to Swim lessons, will there be any reduction for restarting from 12 April?

  • Spectator seating wipes available
  • Lesson equipment minimised and cleaned in chlorinated water between classes
  • Changing facilities locked and cleaned every 15 minutes
  • Increased cleaning of touchpoints

Q: What are the safety measures in place for swimming lessons?

  • We are restricting the use of our pools during lessons to Learn to Swim customers only
  • We are limiting the number of classes and participants in each pool at any one time
  • We are removing the use of shared equipment during a swimming lesson
  • We are limiting changing spaces and introducing changing windows of 15 minutes

Q: What is the format of Derby Active's swimming lessons during Covid-19?
A: We will ensure:

  • Our Swimming Lessons will continue to operate for 25 minutes with 5 minutes reserved for administration. 
  • A water safety briefing will be given by our teachers at the start of every lesson for the first four weeks to ensure swimmer safety.
  • Our teachers focus on refreshing swimmers Core Aquatic Skills during lessons as this provides the foundations on which to build swimmer progress
  • Equipment will be issued per swimmer for the duration of the lesson and there will be no shared equipment during the lesson. 

Q: Will I be able to use the changing rooms before and after lessons?
A: We are encouraging all swimmers to arrive “Beach” or “Pool” ready with swimming costumes on under clothing before Swimming Lessons as changing rooms will not be available before lessons. Swimmers are encouraged to change on poolside prior to their lesson. Changing rooms will, however, be available following lessons without the use of showers and lockers, for a maximum of 15 minutes from your lesson finishing time.

Q: Can more than one parent/guardian spectate? 
A: Only 1 spectator per swimmer will be permitted to help us keep you and our team safe. 

Where absolutely necessary, an additional spectator from the same household may be permitted on discretion of the queue manager or staff member. This will be for childcare, accessibility or disability support during attending swimming lessons.

Where Pre-School Duckling or Adult lessons are taking place, no spectators are permitted, however if necessary, this may be permitted on discretion of the queue manager or staff member. 

Q: Why are teachers teaching from the side but parents are asked to be in the water to support for Ducklings lessons?
A: It is important to minimise the number of people in the water to ensure social distancing is maintained as much as possible, which is why our teachers are teaching from the poolside wherever possible.

However, parents for Ducklings classes may enter the water as long as they maintain social distancing. Parents who are supporting their child in the water should only support their own child and will need to ensure they adhere to social distancing guidelines.

Q: Is it feasible to teach lower stages in deep water to make more use of pool space to allow for social distancing?
A: Yes, our full programme has been reviewed and lessons allocated appropriate locations in the pool to allow a safe and enjoyable lesson. Our Teachers have also undertaken pre-opening training days to cover teaching in different pool locations and utilising equipment that can be used to support swimmers.

Q: Why is my child wearing armbands?
A: Your child’s safety is our priority and they have been away from our pools for a significant amount of time where their ability may have regressed.

Your lesson may have also changed pool or location and armbands or suitable aids may be utilised by your teacher to ensure your child is safe once they return to the water, particularly in the first few weeks where our water safety briefings will also be given as part of returning to lessons.

Q: Why are there different bather loads for different activities?
A: Maximum bather occupancy cannot be determined by just using a single number and applying that to all lessons.

The activity being undertaken has an effect on how you control distance and time, therefore a minimum of 6 m2 would be in a setting where you can control the distance and limit the time at which participants come close.

Q: Are you sure that cleaning equipment in pool water is sufficient?
A: Research has been carried out on this subject and The Pool Water Treatment Advisory Group have published the cleaning parameters.

Additionally, in between sessions we are submerging equipment in chlorinated water to limit the risk of transmission. This will not guarantee any virus if present will be eliminated. We are also removing shared equipment to further minimise the risk of transmission.

Q: Can I shower at the pool?
A: Our showers will not be available for use, however showering before you swim is a vital contribution to ensuring the free chlorine in the pool water is available for disinfection of SARS-CoV-2 (rather than being used to clean dirt off swimmers). We are encouraging swimmers to shower at home before arriving at the pool and at home after your swim.

Q: Can I use lockers at the pool?
A: Lockers will not be available for use, however, please arrive “Pool ready” and bring a bag for your individual changing station on poolside.

Q: What does “beach style” mean. Do I have to drive home in my wet stuff?
A: What we mean by “beach style turn up and swim” is that we ask you to arrive at the pool already wearing your swimming costumes underneath your clothes and having showered at home. We are encouraging swimmers to do this to minimise the time spent in changing areas. Similarly, we are encouraging swimmers to shower at home after their swim, again to minimise the time spent in the changing areas after a swim.

However, changing facilities will still be available for swimmers post-swim for a change.

Q: Should people with health conditions/disabilities return to the pool?
A: Absolutely, we know that swimming is a fantastic activity for people with a range of health conditions/disabilities. However, those in the high risk and moderate risk groups should consider the latest government advice before returning to the pool.

People categorised as “high risk” or who have concerns may wish to consult with their medical practitioner before returning to the water.

Q: Can people who are shielding return to swimming?
A: People who are shielding should follow the latest government guidance.

A: We will ensure there are dividing nets where necessary and spacing between courts and customers will be allocated a court on arrival. 

Q: Will squash be available at Springwood Leisure Centre. 
A: Unfortunately not in this stage of opening due to the court's lack of fresh air movement. This will be continually reviewed in-line with government and sports guidance.

  • We are asking all gymnasts to arrive ready with correct clothing on, or leotards under clothing before lessons as changing rooms will not be available.
  • Any clothing that is removed before the lesson starts must not be taken into the main hall, instead, be taken by a parent or career.
  • Each gymnast will be permitted to take only a water bottle into the main hall

Q: Can parents/guardians spectate?
A: Spectators will not be permitted during this time to help us keep you and our team safe.

Q: Why are coaches coaching from the side?
A: It is important to minimise the number of people on the equipment to ensure social distancing is maintained as much as possible, which is why our coaches are coaching from a distance wherever possible.

Q: Is it feasible to teach smaller groups to make more use of hall space to allow for social distancing?

A: Yes, our full programme has been reviewed and sessions allocated to appropriate locations in the main hall to allow a safe and enjoyable lesson. Our coaches have also undertaken pre-opening training days to cover coaching in different areas and utilising equipment that can be used to support gymnasts.

Q: Why is my child spending more time off the equipment?
A: Your child’s safety is our priority and they have been away from our sessions for a significant amount of time where their ability may have regressed.

Your session may include more time stretching and conditioning or suitable aids may be utilised by your coach to ensure your child is safe once they return to the gymnastics, particularly in the first few weeks where our safety briefings will also be given as part of returning to lessons.

Q: Why are there different ratios for different activities?
A: Maximum occupancy cannot be determined by just using a single number and applying that to all lessons.

The activity being undertaken has an effect on how you control distance and time, therefore a minimum of 1m+ would be in a setting where you can control the distance and limit the time at which participants come close.

Q: Are you sure that your cleaning of equipment is sufficient?
A: Research has been carried out on this subject British Gymnastics/Government have published the cleaning parameters - find out more here.

Additionally, in between sessions we are cleaning equipment to limit the risk of transmission. We are also removing shared equipment to further minimise the risk of transmission.

A: Our showers will not be available for use. All our changing rooms will remain closed for the foreseeable future. Our toilets will also be closed, with only one available upon request.

We advise all members to use toilet facilities before attending a coached session, this will also help will reduce the time lost by toilet trips during sessions.

Q: Can I use lockers at the leisure centre?
A: Lockers will not be available for use, please arrive “session ready”.

Q: What does “session ready” mean? Do I have to go home in my leotard?
A: What we mean by “session ready” is that we ask you to arrive at the centre already wearing suitable clothes, or your gymnastics leotard under your clothes. We are asking gymnasts to do this to minimise the time spent in the centre. Similarly, we are encouraging gymnasts to use the toilet at home before attending the centre, again to minimise the time spent in the centre.

However, toilet facilities will still be available for customers on request.

Q: Should people with health conditions/disabilities return to lessons?
A: Absolutely, we know that exercise is a fantastic activity for people with a range of health conditions/disabilities. However, those in the high risk and moderate risk groups should consider the latest government advice before returning to lessons.
