The enforced global closure of Swimming Pools has had what can only be described as an unparalleled impact on our aquatic community.

The cessation of operations for Swim Ireland Clubs and interruption to recreational swimming for the 290,000 adults who swim each week across the island of Ireland, has been an experience that we hope to see only once in a lifetime.

Swim Ireland has worked alongside industry experts to ensure we can provide you with the best guidance and recommendations for your Return to the Water.

A series of frameworks has been produced for the Aquatic Industry, supporting Facilities and Operators, Swimming Pool Users and Swimming Lesson Providers, in both the public and private sectors to map out a Return to Water.

With the safety of all pool users at the forefront of our minds, the documents shared below will guide you through your much anticipated Return to Water.

Following the advice from the Irish Government and the Northern Ireland Executive, these documents will be updated to ensure you are provided with the most up to date guidance and recommendations.

Swim Ireland will support you on your journey of Returning to Water and Getting Ireland Swimming again.
