What to Expect as LCSC Continues to Practice
1. Please continue to stay safe and stay home if you have any Covid-19 symptoms. 
LCSC is following the recommendations of Wayne County’s “Return to School Roadmap”:
2. Wear your mask and social distance at all times when in the Rec Center.  This includes dry land training, waiting behind the blocks to enter the pool, and using the restrooms.  
3. Maintaining safe distance in the water, while resting and/or receiving instruction.  

Please be aware of social distancing while the water while resting and receiving instructions.  
4. Direct instruction and practice time to correctly perform basic and advanced racing skills.  In swimming, the combination of excellent instruction and time to fine-tune those skills is the path to success.  Coho coaches are well prepared daily to offer excellent instruction, and our Board of Directors have been tenacious in providing pool time so that our young swimmers have the best opportunities to be successful Coho swimmers.
Thank you for keeping all Cohoes safe!
