It will familiarise the member with the premises, pool, safety equipment and explain how to act in case of an emergency or incident.
Remember to dress appropriately for the prevailing outside weather conditions as the session are run outdoors. Use the session as an opportunity to ask any questions you have about the club. On being successfully inducted you will be given your membership/access card and a key to access the building.
Our insurance requires us to verify and confirm every adult member who uses the pool user is a competent and capable swimmer.
Divers, snorkelers and UWH players members will demonstrate this to a club officer in their qualifications or training sessions. Swimming members must arrange for another member to witness them demonstrating the competent and capable swimmer standards described in the PSOP https://sasac.co.uk/psop/#appendix-3 and further have the member who witnessed them confirm the member met the standard to the membership team.
Swimmers can choose to either demonstrate their swimming abilities immediately following their induction or with another member when they first start using the pool.
The member’s profile will be updated to show the induction date and result of their swim assessment.
Planned Induction sessions are published to members on the membership portal.
