VJO Now Approved to Increase Swimmers Per Lane - Effective Monday April 12th
April 5, 2021
Dear VJO Families,
We are excited to announce that the Cunningham Aquatic Complex has now been approved to allow swim teams and water polo teams to practice with 4 swimmers per lane (still social distanced). We understand this is a big difference from the 1-2 swimmers per lane that we have been practicing with.
Effective April 12th our team will start swimming 2 swimmers per lane with our Hammerhead Groups and 3 swimmers per lane with all other groups. Hammerheads swimmers will be assigned one athlete per lane per side of the pool. The second Hammerhead athlete in the lane will enter from the other side of the pool. See practice layout diagrams below.
When space allows, swimmers will continue to be spread out to 1-2 per lane as much as possible and will continue to enter from opposite ends of the pool. When possible we will have siblings/family members share lanes with each other as well. At this time there will be no changes to any groups practice times.
2 PER LANE SOCIAL DISTANCING PRACTICE LAYOUT:
Hammerheads 1 & Hammerheads 2 Groups (H1, H2 & H3)
3 PER LANE SOCIAL DISTANCING PRACTICE LAYOUT:
Leopard Shark, Mako Shark, Junior, Pre-Senior, Senior and Masters Groups
Thank you all for your continued support,
Head Swim Coach
Vallejo Aquatic Club
