CORONAVIRUS (COVID-19)

Parents, swimmers and coaches,

Following the government’s guidelines set out on Monday 16 March 2020 to avoid all unnecessary social gatherings, and with a number of families already in self-isolation, the decision to cancel all training has been taken with immediate effect.

Starting from tonight, Tuesday 17 March 2020.


FEES

From the 1st April please ensure that you have cancelled your standing order for squad fees.  However, the club has other financial obligations as well as pool hire.  We are asking for a nominal monthly fee of £2.50 per swimmer; we appreciate there is no swimming and therefore, this is a voluntary payment.  Please help to support your club.

We will keep everyone updated when we have any further information.

Keep safe

Support GB Synchro and Water Polo Athletes!

CoPA has synchronised swimmers both past and present striving to represent their country as part of the GB synchronised swimming squad. However synchronised swimming and water polo were dealt a severe blow in 2014 when a major source of funding for these Olympic sports was cut entirely by UK Sport, leaving these athletes (or their parents) to fund the vast majority of their training themselves. Please take the time to complete the UK Sport public consultation survey on this topic which is currently under review and help to campaign for a fairer distribution of funding across all Olympic sports and hopefully synchro and water polo may once again be able to benefit from some much needed funding at national/international level.
