Summer 2020 YMCA "Return to the Pool" Tri Meet w/ Phoenixville Y + York Y

Saturday-Sunday August 8-9, 2020

at Graham Aquatic Center, York, PA

543 North Newberry Street, York, PA 17404


As part of our "Return to Racing" we are working with other local teams to develop opportunities for our WSY swimmers to race.  We will start with a YMCA "Tri Meet" (which will be USA swimming Approved but open to all WSY swimmers aged 9 and over) on Saturday and Sunday August 8-9, 2020

Here is the list of events

Please select Yes or No if you will be attending this event.  We will limit this to about 40 swimmers.

Few important items for everyone

  • All swimmers from all 3 teams will be sitting OUTDOORS under tents.  Each of the 3 teams will have a "Team Area" and we will keep "separation" between each team.
  • We are asking for "limited parents" and at most one parent per swimmer as parents will NOT be permitted in the natatorium to watch the meet.  Parents will view the meet from meet mobile and from the livestream video that will be running. The livestream will run for the entire meet. The only parents that will be on deck is timers and officials.  At this point we will be asking for 4 parents per session that will be needed to serve as lane timers.
  • As like we do at WSY, coaches will take temperatures of all athletes when you arrive at the Graham Center.  No one with a temperature over 100.5 will be permitted. If you are sick or have symptoms you must stay home
  • No concessions. Swimmers should prepare to bring their own drinks and snacks. 
  • Swimmers will be permitted to use the OUTDOOR warm up pool (max of 2 swimmers per lane) before & after their events.
  • Swimmers will be permitted to use the locker rooms for changing in and out of their suits.  We will have more detail on locker room procedures closer to the meet
  • Swimmers will be "staged" outdoors => 8 swimmers will walk onto the pool deck, race their event (with music playing and coaches cheering => 8 swimmers will exit the indoor pool, walk outside and warm down in the outdoor pool

As all of you know, swim meets will look totally different over the next 12-16 months.  We intend to do this right and to be a guide for other teams in the area who would like to explore a responsible meet format in these times. If you or your swimmer do not feel comfortable with these protocols we respect your choice to not attend  this meet. This will be new for everyone and we want you to feel confident and comfortable that you are making the right choice. 

We need to know who is attending this event by Monday, July 27, 2020.  This way we can plan on how long the sessions will be.  We are looking at 2-3 events per day for each swimmer

Swimmers’ age is as of August 8, 2020.

Warm-Ups and Start times: To be determined
