Although currently (30/12/20) we are closed again as Nottinghamshire moves into Tier 4 we hope to be back soon! The following information is about the club and Covid when we are open…..

Carlton Forum and CFSC opened for business again in early December welcoming back Small Pool, Pre-Club, Club and Squad swimmers. Unfortunately Covid restrictions mean that over 18s cannot swim at the moment. As soon as we are allowed to invite them back, we will.

CFSC’s committee have appointed two Covid Officers to concentrate on issues around Covid – Linda MacDonald, our Chairperson, and Geoff Cooper, our President and Membership Secretary. If you have Covid specific queries please address them to

CFSC and Covid – general

We are currently swimming Monday 7-9 Tuesday 7-9 (Large and Small), Friday 7-9 and Friday 7-8. Pre-Club (large pool beginners) This is likely to be the program until Covid is under control and both ourselves and the Forum can get normal pool occupation numbers.

You must read and understand the CFSC Protocol for swimming (large pool) and Swim England’s guidance (the guidance for users pdf) before swimming. The SE guidance is generic and some parts will clearly not apply to swimming with the Club, please read it in conjunction with the CFSC Protocol. Small pool parents must read and understand the CFSC Protocol for swimming lessons and should also read Swim England’s guidance (the guidance for users pdf). The SE guidance for swimming lessons is also available from the above link and the Club will be conforming to this guidance. Teaching has to be carried out from poolside, not in the water, and lessons may be shorter as change-over will take more time.

Before you can swim you must read and agree the new Covid codes of conduct on Swim Club Manager. If you can’t agree to these please contact the Covid Officers.

All the coaches have been really happy to see everyone back!

If you originally chose not to return after lockdown but think you may wish to join us again please contact Jo Hunt at
