There was a funny t-shirt a rival high school team printed off back in the 90's...I'm sure it will make its way around again with this current shut-down. The back of the shirt showed a swimmer and had the phrase "7 days without water makes one weak." The current state of affairs around the world has certainly created a massive break in our daily structure. Hopefully your family is safe and you guys have found ways to spend time doing things together that would have normally not made it in to the typical busy schedule.
The JETS Coaching Staff continues to look for ways to develop resources for its athletes even when we can not see them in person at the pool. This page will be continually updated with new ideas and information over the coming weeks. There are plenty of online resources to tap into...if you find a good one - send it along so we can take a look.
JETS RETURN TO PRACTICE PLAN (Schiller Park)
After several months of planning and preparations with the Syracuse Parks and Recreation Department, the posted plan maps out the logistical use of the Schiller Park Pool for competitive swim training. It is important that all guidelines are followed by athletes AND parents. Failure to do so may jeopardize the club's ability to rent the facility. Please also note that public lap swimming will also be occurring while we are on the premises. They will also be following similar protocols.
AT HOME SWIM WORKOUTS
Do you have access to a swimming pool at home? How about a lake at camp? Well - if you have access to a body of water...you may be able to get a great swim workout in while we wait to get some pool time. As always, please use appropriate safety precautions and supervision when swimming. Athletes should never be left to fend for themselves...especially in Open Water. This document was only created to offer support and ideas for athletes looking to get wet. USA Swimming Insurance coverage is only available when a certified USA Swimming Coach is in the presence of the athlete at the time of the training.

Now time for some fine print...USA SWIMMING insurance only covers athletes when they are in the physical presence of a certified coach. We have been directed by our national governing body to remind athletes and families that there are risks with all physical activities. Participation in any routine posted on this website or communicated from the JETS coaching staff in any manner falls under the guidance and discretion of the athlete's parent/guardian. Please proceed with appropriate caution and choose activities that parents feel are appropriate for their child.
