Welcome to Barry Community Water Activity Centre

Currently operating from temporary facilities for local organisations, the centre’s aim is to source fundraising to construct a purpose built facility that will not only benefit the local organisations but also local Schools, Youth Clubs and the general public giving them access to carry out activities on the water.

Details of our rules and regulations, together with membership application forms can be found on the Bookings Page.



Covid 19 – 18th December

With the new lockdown looming, BCWAC will be closed until further notice. If you need to visit the centre to access equipment or for maintenance you must contact either the manager or the secretary. your keys will not work.
Covid regulations will probably still be in force when we re-open.  Prior booking will remain essential and you must contact the manager and book before visiting. You also need to record your visit either in the Book or online. Use This Form  to record your visit.
Groups must lodge their Covid Risk Assessment with us and tell us who their Covid Officer is before using the centre. Maximum size for organised groups is 30 outdoors and 15 indoors, if social distancing requirements can be met. The teaching room will remain locked with access controlled by the manager. Face coverings are required indoors.
You must self-isolate if you have Coronovirus Symptoms. The main symptoms of coronavirus are:
  • a high temperature: this means you feel hot to touch on your chest or back (you do not need to measure your temperature)
  • a new, continuous cough: this means coughing a lot for more than an hour, or 3 or more coughing episodes in 24 hours (if you usually have a cough, it may be worse than usual)
  • a loss or change to your sense of smell or taste: this means you’ve noticed you cannot smell or taste anything, or things smell or taste different to normal
Most people with coronavirus have at least one of these symptoms. If you develop one of these symptoms, you should follow the self-isolation guidance.
