Winter 2021 Swim Team
Open for Returning Members

Open for New Members
1/20/21 - 3/24/21
Happy New Year! Similar to the fall, we will be using a phased approach to getting the team back into the pool.
Practice groups are capped at 24 swimmers to maintain 6 foot or greater distancing. Each lane will have no more than four swimmers assigned to designated starting spots in the lane; one swimmer will start at each wall and one swimmer will start at each of the outside flags. If we have more than 24 swimmers registered for a practice group, we will begin a waitlist.
For the Gold groups, you will register for either GROUP A: Monday-Wednesday-Friday or GROUP B: Tuesday-Thursday-Saturday. We ask that you please pick the days that work best for your family, and that moving days will not be possible unless we have less than 24 swimmers register for a group.
Winter season billing will be done in two payments. Upon registration, the annual membership fee ($82—if not paid already for the year), plus the first month of dues will be charged. The 2nd half of the registration fees will be charged on March 1st.
We are following Health Department, DCS and USA swimming guidelines to do our best to ensure a safe return to the pool. A few things to note: all swimmers must wear a mask to and from practice and at any time they are not in the water. Please complete the DCAC Contrct Tracing Check-In, prior to sending your child to swim. If you answer "yes" to any of the questions, or if your child's temperature is 100.4 F or higher, DO NOT send your child to swim.
Swimmers will need to bring all their own gear as shared equipment is not permitted at this time. Swimmers must also arrive in their swim suits and be ready for practice as locker room usage is not allowed at this time. Emergency use of the rest-rooms will be permitted.
Our goal is for everyone to have an opportunity to participate in the sport that they love and spend some time with the friends that they have been distanced from. We will do it safely and we will have fun doing it!
Welcome back and let’s get back to work!
