New Canaan Winter Invitational Distance Meet @ New Canaan YMCA

January 28, 2022

564 South Avenue, New Canaan, CT 06811



MEET FORMAT: OPEN. The meet will be swum as Timed-Final

WAIVER: All participants and spectators must sign the Waiver of Liability and Hold Harmless Agreement. The Waiver that you have signed for entry into the YMCA is the only waiver that we need.

Weather: Friday and Saturday look like it could be bad. I am hopeful this will not be the case, but I am working on contingency plans and will let you know the plan if we need to switch gears. I need to discuss with officials to see options.  

BEFORE ENTERING FACILITY or WHAT TO BRING: Swimmers must arrive in their swimsuits and have a mask on. Swimmers will enter through the side doors that access the Valles Pool. Upon arrival, all swimmers will be given a pump of hand sanitizer that they are to use. Swimmers will maintain social distancing and keep their masks on until it is time for their individual heat. 

FACILITY RULES: - Swimmers will be dropped off at the side entrance that leads directly to the Valles Pool. - Social Distancing will be enforced. - All Swimmers must enter with a mask on and keep the mask on until it is time for their warmup or heat.

LOCKER ROOMS: Locker rooms will be open.  

Livestream:: The meet will be live-streamed on Zoom. Zoom links will be sent out the week of the swim meet. 

ENTRY LIMITATIONS: 2 event limit

ENTRY FEES: Electronic entries: $10.00 for individual events. 

PARKING: Saxe Middle School in New Canaan. (School right next to the YMCA) After 5:00 PM. Parents are to drop off swimmers at the side parking lot and then park. Swimmers are to come into the pool using the side door. Swimmers will wait outside for their respective age group.

Spectators:  We will allow spectators, but we are asking to only allow two per person. I understand this is impossible to police. Spectators will be asked to always wear masks. 

Concessions/Hospitality/Heat Sheets: We will have all of these. Concessions will be in the observation deck and will be open Friday night. Heat sheets will be available for purchase for $3.  

Chairs: We are allowing folding chairs. We will still have the benches on deck but there are a lot of swimmers coming and they will not all fit on the benches. Please let them know we are allowing the folding chairs, but the areas where they sit need to be cleaned and the chairs not left.
