COVID-19 Guidance


In line with recent Government advice and the gradual easing of some restrictions we have removed previous guidance documents from this hub and replaced these with the latest guidance. Our competition documents can now be found bottom right.

You can also stay engaged with Scottish Swimming through our SS Connect programme, where you can find more information here.

The guidance may change and evolve as new advice is published and we will keep you updated with the latest developments. While this is overarching guidance local authorities and pool operators may have their own site-specific guidance also.
