Practice Rules / COVID-19


Based on the current guidelines, practice rules are are as follows:

1) If you have COVID-19, have symptoms of COVID-19, or have been around someone diagnosed with COVID-19, you will not be allowed to participate.
  • Some symptoms include fever and/or cough, please consult the CDC website for a comprehensive list (all employees will also be screened each day).

2) Locker rooms will be closed, except as needed for restroom use only.

  • Swimmers should arrive and leave in their suits.
  • Maximum 3 swimmer occupancy at a time.
  • No showering or changing.

3) Parents are not allowed on the pool deck/within the fence.

  • Parents are allowed to observe from outside of the fence.
  • If you need to speak with a coach, please make an appointment by emailing [email protected]

4) Parents should not leave the location during practice.

  • Swimmers will be required to leave the gate immediately at the conclusion of practice, and will then be assumed to be under their parent's supervision.
We appreciate your cooperation and patience as we continue to develop a gradual return to normal. We hope to create an environment where everyone feels comfortable, while having fun practicing with their teammates. If you have any questions, please feel free to ask.

A Note from the Coach:

Due to the various restrictions and subsequent restraints imposed by COVID-19, all groups are still on slightly reduced practice durations. We hope this won't continue indefinitely, but in the meantime, we want to encourage all swimmers to continue to supplement their in-water training with age-appropriate strength training at home. For a majority of our swimmers, the most beneficial training will be core exercises and body weight exercises such as pushups, pullups, lunges, burpees, etc, all in addition to hamstring and hip flexor stretching. If you have any questions about this, please feel free to email me at [email protected]
