Updates from the Meet Host
I have attached the PROJECTED timeline for the sessions with the starting times below. Warm ups will start 1 hour before the listed session start time on the timeline as that start time indicates when the actual MEET will start. 

PARKING & ENTRANCE AREA:   Please use the doors on the NORTH side of the building,located at the back of the main building. Parking is available on the NORTH & WEST side of the building.

Facility Entry Plan: All individuals will enter and exit the facility thru the pool entrance doors on the north side of the building. Also a reminder that anyone in the building MUST wear a face mask at all times.  This is a state of Illinois mandate that all of us must follow.  Please know that this will be required and there will be no exceptions.
Please remind your swimmers, coaches and especially parents that we are still under Covid 19 watch. This means everyone in the building is still required to wear a mask everywhere.  The meet host volunteers will not be the Covid police, but we do expect everyone to respect the rules and act accordingly.  We don't want to jeopardize future meets hosted here or elsewhere in Illinois Swimming. The meet is not crowded so with 3 sessions per day, it will help keep the volume of people lower during each session.  
Doors Open:  
Doors on Friday WILL NOT open until 5:00pm .  The HS boys will be practicing until just before 5:30pm so deck access will be limited to coaches and officials until we get the go from the HS coach to let the swimmers on deck.
Saturday and Sunday morning doors will open at 6:30am.  Please  know that you will NOT be able to enter prior to 6:30am. 

POSITIVE CHECK IN: This meet will be a positive check in meet. Swimmers must check in at the clerk of the course 30 minutes prior to the start of each session or the swimmer will be scratched from the day’s events.

On Deck Protocol: There will be restrooms available in the PE locker room for athletes. There will be limited locker room use.
COVID-19 precautions: Athletes will always wear a mask when not competing. Athletes will keep a mask on until they are whistled onto the starting blocks. At this time, athletes will remove their mask, place it into a zip lock bag and step onto the blocks. When the race is complete, athletes will replace their mask. Athletes will be safely distanced in-between events by utilizing the pool deck bleachers. Coaches will organize athletes by heat and assign a location on deck. After competing athletes will walk to their designated area on the pool deck. There will be no athletes behind the blocks unless they are competing in the next heat. Coaches will be on deck to make sure athletes are wearing masks and social distancing. Hand sanitizer will be available on the pool deck and by the front entrance.
Concessions & Apparel: Refreshments will be available on all days (Cash only). A dining area will be set up near the entrance to the pool and bleacher area. This will be the only area that food and drink will be allowed. Coolers will be required to be checked in at this area. A complete line of swimmer apparel and accessories will be provided for sale to your swimmers. 
HEAT SHEETS: $10.00 All sessions or $3.00 per session
Spectators: Spectators are allowed in the building. There will be no admission charged as it was a separate fee with the meet entry. Heat sheets will be available for CASH purchase.
