The wellbeing, health and safety of all our athletes, coaches, volunteers and the general public continues to be a priority for MASC.
At present our position, in line with the further guidance issued by Scottish Swimming today and with whom we are in close discussions with, is that we will continue to offer our training sessions in the short term, however, it is anticipated these will be suspended in the very near future.
Other community activities for participants involved in sports such as rugby, hockey, basketball and football etc. have already been suspended.

Our TeamApp should be referred to for up to date information regarding training or competitions before attending or dropping your child at any activity.
Please follow all the relevant advice from official sources on how to avoid catching or spreading the virus, we would encourage you to look after your health and consider the risk of attending if you have underlying health conditions or if your child is unwell (no matter the symptoms) and be mindful of social distancing guidelines whilst attending Musselburgh Sports Centre.
If you develop symptoms consistent with COVID-19 please contact the coaching team immediately via their email account (firstname.lastname@example.org) so the Club can make a decision regarding the immediate suspension of all training.
There is no pressure from MASC for athletes, coaches or volunteers to attend any organised activity if they feel it will risk their health.
This is an ongoing and fast moving situation and as such all of the above will be subject to ongoing review and updates will be issued by the Club as soon as feasible.
Thank you very much for your continued support, patience, cooperation and understanding.
