In terms of our 2020 season,

The Venetian Swim Team Committee, with the support of the Venetian Board, has made the very difficult decision to cancel this summer's swim team season due to COVID-19 concerns.

So many factors contributed to this decision, with the primary one being safety. ASA has proposed very detailed social distancing guidelines for teams to follow and many, including Venetian, are questioning their ability, and desire, to meet those guidelines given all the uncertainty that COVID represents.

Even a virtual meet with no opposing team present, no concessions, people bringing their own chairs, etc. still requires a lot of close contact on the pool deck. Plus, there are detailed practice considerations that only allow for four swimmers in a lane at a time, which would significantly infringe on free time at the pool during an already abbreviated season.

I know this is disappointing as we were all looking forward to another awesome swim season. We hope everyone understands that the many risks simply outweigh our best attempts to safely modify a swim team season.

We will begin issuing full refunds, which should show up in your account in the next week or so. Please contact us if you have any questions.

Thanks,
Venetian Swim Team Committee
