Practices this season will look very different from previous years. Each swimmer will have an assigned lane for every practice. During practice, swimmers who are from the same household and same ability level will be on one end of the lane. They will share a lane with kids from other households, but they will be on opposite ends of the pool at all times (other than passing each other midway through the pool). We’re going to do our best to promote social distancing at all times.
Practices will run from 7 am-12 pm Monday-Wednesday and 7 am-10 am Thursday and Friday. Each swimmer will have three practices reserved for them per week. We’re working on offering an additional Friday beach practice to one group per week. Unfortunately, we can’t guarantee the same time on different days of the week, but we are trying to make it as consistent as possible.
There is a spot on the registration to note dates and times that do not work, but we cannot guarantee any special accommodation. Any cancellations due to weather or other conditions will not be made-up or refunded.
We will not be having any swim meets.
- Advanced swimmers are able to swim extended workouts and sets. Typically these kids have been on a swim team for several years. They must be able to swim 500 yards (20 lengths) without stopping. 3 practices per week, 90 minutes per practice
- Intermediate swimmers are able to swim all four strokes somewhat proficiently. They must be able to swim 100 yards (4 lengths) without stopping. 3 practices per week, 60 minutes per practice
- Beginner swimmers are able to swim on their own without assistance from floaties or adults in the water. They must be able to swim one length of the pool without stopping. 3 practices per week, 30 minutes per practice
We ask for your flexibility and understanding. Depending on additional sign-ups, tightening or loosening of government restrictions, etc., team policies or schedules may change during the summer. We’re planning to reassess several times during the summer.
