Keeping safe, Keeping active, Keeping Fit

To ensure and to allow our members & customers to be actively safe in our Covid Secure venues we have implemented a number of safety measures & booking restrictions. We are closely following the government's guidelines and doing everything we could to stop the spread of the virus.

Doncaster is currently under very high restrictions. We are following the government's guidelines closely to ensure we're doing everything we could to stop the spread. You could too do your bit by following a few easy steps when you visit any of our Covid secure venues

  • Wash your hands
  • Cover your face
  • Make Space

Let's do it for Doncaster

We continue to review these guidelines and update them in-line with governments and industry guidance.

GYM

The Fitness Village at Adwick, Balby, Dearne Valley & The Dome are open 7 days per week

  • All sessions must be booked online and in advance
  • We won’t be able to grant access to the sites to anyone who hasn’t booked. This is to ensure that we are keeping to the guidelines and that we can operate safely. Please don’t turn up if you haven’t booked. 
  • Our gym spaces will look different as equipment will be spaced out to give everybody the confidence to exercise safely.

Additional measures due to Doncaster entering very high restriction 

  • 1. We have to keep numbers to a maximum of 15 and have been asked to remind participants that mingling/ socialising outside of households and bubbles is not allowed before or after the class, so we ask that you arrive and leave separately.

    2. The biggest change is that face coverings have to be worn. We know that this is a big change and we are not sure how you will find taking part in the class wearing a face covering but we’re happy to be able to continue to run our classes if you can meet the new requirements.

Swimming Lessons

Swimming lessons at Adwick Leisure Complex, Armthorpe, Dearne Valley and Thorne Leisure centre have all resumed

  • Sessions times must be adhered to, we ask that you arrive no earlier than five minutes before your lesson.

  • Any spectators/ parents will need to wear suitable face masks while in the facility
  • The capacity of each lesson have been reduced in line with guidance from Swim England
  • To reduce the number of people within our venues and enable us to maintain social distancing, only parents/guardians of learners in Ducklings or Stage 1 classes will be allowed to remain within the venue during a lesson.


    Parents/Guardians of children in Stage 2 and above will be allowed access to the changing facility at the start of a lesson to assist their child, but are then asked to return to their vehicle for the duration of their child’s lesson. They will then be granted access back into the venue two minutes before the end of their child’s lesson, ready to collect them.
    A maximum of one accompanying parent/guardian is allowed into the venue along with their child. Young siblings may also accompany parents/guardians if they re not able to remain outside the venue.
