Practices will be held Mon, Tues, and Thurs mornings from 9-10/10-11am, and Mon and Wed evenings from 8-9pm. Monday 6/22/20 will be a swim assessment for all swimmers! If you plan to attend morning practices, please come to the morning assessment (swimmers ages 6-10 at 9am; swimmers 11 & up, and 6 & under at 10am)! If you plan to attend evening practices, please attend the evening assessment for all ages at 8pm. This will help us spread out our swimmers and set up practice lane assignments/times with swimmers of similar abilities.
Since we are unable to offer beginning swim lessons for 6 and under this year, this is also a chance to see if your younger swimmers will be able to participate. All swimmers must be able to swim the full length of the pool unassisted this year. It doesn't have to be pretty! But coaches will not be in the water to aid them. We will of course have a lifeguard on deck, and conduct assessments for beginners in lane 1 next to the wall.
We will email each family later that day with their swimmer's assigned lane and practice time. Morning practices will begin the next day, Tues 6/23 and regular evening practices will begin 6/24. The pool has already been set up to accommodate the 6ft social distancing guidelines. When you enter the pool area for practice, please wait with your swimmer(s) at one of the tables or groups of lounge chairs, six feet apart from other swim families, until you are called over to the pool by one of the coaches or swim coordinators. Spectators are welcome to stay and watch the practices while maintaining these guidelines.
