ST1 / ST2 Squad - Information

ST1 and ST2 Groups are stepping stones to ST3
ST1 and ST2 groups are stroke development groups; their role is to develop strokes and develop basic aquatic fitness in short intense sessions to allow the swimmer to make the step up to ST3.
 ST1/2 Coach:
Squad Rep:

Parents are reminded that they MUST check that a qualified coach is poolside before they leave their children.

At the time of writing this is either Stacey Vickery, or Maxine Graham.You a have a legal duty of care for your child, and shouldn't assume a lesson will commence at a set time.

Please could you also ensure that children with access to mobile phones, or other devices with cameras, understand that it is inappropriate to take photos in the changing rooms.

Please could you also advise your children that it is not appropriate to post photos of children, from swimming, on social networking sites without the permission of the parents of the children in those photos.

The club takes Child Safeguarding extremely seriously and recent incidents have meant we are publishing this notice. If you are unsure about this, or any other safeguarding issue, the club has a child welfare officer. You can contact her by clicking here.

ST1/2 AM PM Venue



ST1 / ST2 - Venues

Taunton Prep School & Keeling Pool

As the Club does not own its own facilities access to swimming facilities relies on the goodwill and tolerance of outside organisations. Any behaviour disrespectful to these organisations or their property, which could compromise the use of the facility by the Club, is strictly forbidden.

Premises should be left clean and tidy any damage or mess should be reported to coaching staff immediately.

Taunton School

Male swimmers should use changing room A. Female swimmers should use the area where the lockers are in the girls changing rooms.

Taunton School Sports Club members use this facility at the same time as the Club and as such the highest behavioural standards must be maintained. Failure to do so will result in swimmer(s) being banned from the facility at the request of Taunton School Sports Club.

The school has a secure door on entry to the pool. Please do not obstruct this door from closing under any circumstance.

Keeling Pool

Swimmers must use the members changing area.
