At the end of June, we sent out a questionnaire regarding returning to training. A lot have been returned but in case some families missed the email the survey regarding your swimmers intention to return to swimming it is attached below.
Despite the length of time we have been unable to train, we are looking forward to seeing everyone, hopefully soon.
Active Nation plan to reopen the pool on the 10th August but we have no exact date as to when we can return to training. In anticipation of a start date soon after we want to be ready to start asap.
With that in mind, so we can arrange pool time and prepare training sessions, if you have not yet completed the questionnaire we would be grateful if you could confirm your place and complete the attached survey for Chorley Marlins
We will be in touch once we have more information.
If you have not already done so, please return your completed survey to email@example.com
