2020 Fall Swim Procedures

***Please review these procedures with your athletes before our first practice.***

-Swimmers will wear face coverings while in the facility at all times.   Face coverings are removed once the athlete is entering the water at the instruction of the coach.

-Coaches will wear face coverings while in the facility at all times.

-Swimmers need to arrive 10-15 minutes before practice begins and will enter through the main entrance at ECC.  A coach will be at the front doors to greet the swimmers. Another coach will be in the hallway to do temperature checks on every swimmer and coach.  Any individual with a temperature at or above 100.4 will need to leave immediately.  Parents will be contacted by a coach. 

-Swimmers will need to answer 3 health questions before entering the pool deck.   Coaches can refuse entry to any swimmer who appears to be sick. Swimmers should be prepared to answer the following questions upon arrival.

  • In the last 14 days have you traveled outside your normal, daily routine, especially in any COVID-19 hot spots?             
  • Have you been exposed to someone being tested for COVID-19 or who has symptoms compatible with COVID-19?
  • Are any members of your household a close contact on quarantine for exposure to COVID-19?
Swimmers who answer YES to any one of these questions will not be allowed to practice until they can confirm that they are negative for COVID-19.  
Swimmers will then sign in at the registration table confirming they attended practice that day.
-Please keep your swimmers home if they are displaying any signs of any COVID-19-like symptoms.

-Attendance will be taken once the swimmers have entered the pool deck.

-Bathing suits should be worn to and from the pool to avoid locker room gatherings. 

-One shower will be open in the boys locker room and four showers will be open in the girls locker room for those who need to use the facility before they head to school.  We are allowed only one swimmer per shower, no gatherings in the locker room are allowed by the facility.  Only 6 swimmers are allowed in the locker room at a time.

-Swimmers will enter the pool deck through the locker rooms. There is a maximum of 6 athletes allowed in a locker room at a time. Swim bags will be placed around the perimeter of the pool deck in designated areas following social distancing. 

-Athletes will be assigned lanes and lane locations according to carpooling/family members/quarantining groups.  Maximum of 3 swimmer per lane.

-The bathrooms will be open but we will restrict entry to one swimmer at a time.

-Parents are allowed in the facility and can sit in the stands but all must wear a mask and follow the 6 foot rule while sitting in the stands.  Only family members will be allowed to sit together.

-Swimmers will leave the facility through the locker rooms and exit through the side entrance.  Please be outside the facility to pick up your swimmer no later than 10-15 minutes after practice ends.  A coach will stand at the exit door as swimmers exit the facility.

-In the event the facility is closed or practice is canceled for any reason, coaches will send a text and email to all registered accounts.  Please be sure you have these contacts set up on your Team Unify account.

Registration will CLOSE on Tuesday, September 8th at noon.

We understand these practice times may be challenging but we are thankful to have the ability to run practices through December.  We still hope to get into some high school facilities as the students return to the classroom.  We plan to give practice time to our younger groups, White and Blue, as this happens. The Board will be sending out a separate email to those groups soon.

Please be aware that the TWST Board has voted to help subsidize the pool rental cost of this program by using $20,000 of our reserve funds to help keep pricing as low as possible.  We have amazing, dedicated families, swimmers and coaches.  This is an unprecedented time in our world and our team goal is to provide for as many of our swimmers as we can.  Thank you for your ongoing support and dedication to TWST!
