In light of yesterday’s announcement by UK Sport on a return to Elite training in England, Swim Wales would like to provide clarity on what that means for us in Wales.
Please find a statement below.
“Swim Wales as a Welsh National Governing Body are subject to Welsh Government restrictions as they currently stand. These restrictions currently also apply to the training facilities where our High Performance Centres and National Elite Programme are based, namely the Wales National Pool Swansea and Cardiff International Pool”.
“We welcome the release of restrictions in England, as this will enable our colleagues at British Swimming to implement their own return to training plans. We will continue to maintain strong links with them through the existing channels and we will observe their progress over the weeks ahead”.
“The Welsh based elite swimmers linked to the British Swimming World Class Programme will continue to observe the Welsh Government guidelines, and our performance teams will continue to work with Sport Wales and Welsh Government on timings for our own return to water plans”
