Hello Waves Family!
We are excited about another great season swimming, learning, competing and having a great time! Registration is now open! However, this year will look a little different due to Covid-19 precautions and Arkansas Department of Health directives. I hope we can all follow these new guidelines in order to let our kids get a swim season in this year! First off, our season will be starting a little late this year as you can see. We do not have an official first day of practice yet as we are working with the LPOA pool to come up with a plan. Please bear with us. The latest we would start is June 8th. Also, due to pool capacity restrictions, we will need to split up our practices a little differently. A tentative practice schedule will be posted soon. Here are a few other changes we are anticipating:
-Masks must be worn in the pool area on anyone over the age of 10 not participating in swim practice as a swimmer. This includes coaches, parents, parent reps and lifeguards.
-Parents will be asked to drop their kids off and leave the pool area during practice. You are welcome to set up a chair outside of the fence if you feel you need to stay and watch, however, we cannot have parents sitting inside during practice at this time.
-While picking up and dropping off, social distancing must be maintained.
-Lakewood will conduct inter-team meets at our own pool in order to have competition and collect times. These may occur on weeknights or Saturday mornings. TBA
-First time swimmers MUST attend a tryout in order for us to determine your child's abilities. Because of social distancing guidelines, your child MUST be able to swim the length of the pool unassisted. No exceptions will be made. Try-out dates will be announced shortly.

Thank you all for being willing to work with us. Hope to see you soon and stay tuned for more concrete details.
