Check out the brave here! 🏴󠁧󠁒󠁳󠁣󠁴󠁿

Harley & Isla are pictured here in 14c water at Loch an Eilein, a freshwater loch in the Rothiemurchus Forest about 5 km south of Aviemore, Scotland in Cairngorms National Park. Loch an Eilein comes from the Scottish Gaelic and means 'Loch of the island'.

Open water in this case is truly stunning but with any open water swimming comes considerations for safety.

🀚 Top tips for staying safe in open water

βœ” Think before you swim. Check your entry and exit points and take into account currents and tides.

βœ” Stay shallow like Harley & Isla and think about feet protection

βœ” Swim with other people, never alone and eyes on children at all times

βœ” Don’t jump in. Enter the water slowly to prevent β€˜cold water shock’. Paddling is great with young children

βœ” Let people know where you are and what you’re doing (e.g. inform beach lifeguards or even the coast guard if planning a long coastal swim)

βœ” Make sure you’re visible in the water. Wear a brightly coloured suit or a swim hat

βœ” If someone gets in trouble, don’t put yourself at risk but call for help

βœ” If you find yourself in difficulty FLOAT TO LIVE. We practice floating on backs in lessons, which can be vital in some situations.

Well done little guys 🏴󠁧󠁒󠁳󠁣󠁴󠁿

I wonder how many people have walked through that door since 2017! Literally thousands 😯

The build process was an exciting one though....Can't quite believe we're approaching our 4th Anniversary next month.

Googles πŸ‘€ Googles πŸ‘€ Goggles

We have lots of goggles in stock so if your small person is moving to after schools in Sept or into a pre-school class, then now is a great time to introduce goggles.

We offer a fitting service if you're not sure what will / will not work with any googles available for purchase to make sure they're just right πŸ‘Œ

Head size, eye width, eye size, bridge of the nose width, single strap / double strap all have an effect on whether goggles are suitable. Those pictured are our tried and tested goggles but the fit is absolutely key.

If you'd like us to put a set aside, send through a message and we'll wave our magic wand πŸͺ„

All goggles are just Β£10

Swim England (Governing body) have confirmed that their guidance for the management of Covid-19 within the aquatic environment will be removed from Monday 19th July 2021.

As a result, our facility, as of 19th July 2021 will no longer be operating under special measures.

You will see some changes in and around the facility. Those that swum with us prior to March 2020 will see the return of familiar practice such as no one way system, no wall stickers, no changing pods, no requirement for masks or social distancing, no queuing post lesson to collect children etc.

We'll put together an email for you with a run down of some things that will remain such as our fixed unit sanitisers, changing room cleaning materials to use if you wish, enhanced cleaning schedule etc but a little closer to life pre-covid.

Best regards

Absolutely delighted to receive this!

Breckland Council arrived unannounced today, to inspect the premises to ensure we are Covid secure.

Not only did we exceed their expectations our provision was considered 'well thought out with clear signage', displayed good understanding of the risks and measures in place to combat those and 'record keeping of very good standard'.

Pat on the back for AQUAnimals!

Go big or go home I say πŸ™‚

Thank you to all of you that contribute to our success with wearing masks, waiting, swift changing, the long walk round and baring with us on the lack of spectating!

To my superb team, thank you for your efforts also. Together we make progress πŸ‘Œ

Mid week model montage!

We've had some help from some of our special swimmers, brilliantly demonstrating what we need babies & pre-schoolers to wear in the water in lessons & pool hire.

As a minimum; we need a swimming nappy (either disposable or reusable) and 'trunks' or 'happy nappy trunks'.

You'll see from the pictures that babies tend to be in swim nappies and trunks. You can add a wrap if they're little but the water is warm at AQUAnimals and eventually they won't need them.

You'll also see that some are in all-in-one suits - these have the nappy trunk built it which are great πŸ‘Œ

Once they outgrow the nappy shorts / trunks you'll see the next stage up are jammers. Same thing but bigger! (You still need a nappy with them).

The last pictures show a nappy & suits without built in trunks - these are what we've been seeing in the last couple of weeks which would stop you being allowed into the lesson β›”.

Until children are 100% toilet trained and reliable, we need the swim nappy & trunks combination. Anything can be added over the top but the main part is swim nappy & trunks.

Thank you to our tiny friends Annabelle, Asher, Isabelle, Charlie, Dora, Harriet, Emily, Otis & Harriet L β€πŸ’™

[05/14/21]   Model call πŸ©³πŸ‘™πŸ©±πŸ˜‡

We need some "swim ready" models please for the following (old or new pics):

🐟 0-6mths ish in a wrap, nappy & neoprene nappy shorts

🐟 0-6mths ish in a swim nappy & neoprene nappy shorts / suit

🐟 6-18mths ish in nappy & neoprene nappy shorts

🐟 6-18mths ish in nappy & neoprene nappy shorts and maybe their swimsuit / sunsuit over the top

🐟 2-3yrs ish in a swim nappy & built in nappy suit

🐟 2-3yrs ish in swim nappy & grown up neoprene nappy shorts with their little swim suit over the top

Can you help? Get your lovely swimmer pool ready and either lay them down on a blanket or sheet or standing up somewhere with a plain background. Snap away and send them over to us. Ideally lay out their little kit too without the child so we can see the components!

We need to create a montage of the evolution of swimwear i.e what we need them to wear in the water and would love to use our AQUAnimals swimmers πŸ™‚
