May 21 Updates

Hi Goodman Families – Last night we had our board meeting where we discussed practices, socials, dual meets and All City.  As we’ve all learned this past year, it is difficult to make specific plans regarding COVID-19 and expect them to remain unchanged for any period of time. Here are some of the updates.

Summer Season 2021
  • Practices
    • Practice for swim & dive begins Monday, June 14.
    • Dive practice ends Friday, July 23.
    • Swim practice ends Tuesday, July 27
  • Practice Schedule 
    • Swim : We have made some changes to our Swim practice schedule in order to even out our age groups. We had an overwhelming number of 13 and ups register and sign up on our waitlist. We decided that in the best interest of the swimmers, we needed to give this age group more space. We know that this might be disappointing to some but we couldn't justify having such a large group given the numbers in our other groups. Please check out the age groups and times. 
    • Dive : We very happy to share that we were able to add 15 mins onto our  dive practice
  • Socials 
    • We are looking into the  possibility of having some of our social events (ie, team photos, tie-dye, and potlucks). If you have any ideas, please email us! 
  • Dual Meets
    • At this time, we do not have any updates from our last email, however, we anticipate more details to come out in early June.
  • All-City Championship Meets Tentative Schedule
    • As we mentioned in our last email, the All City Championships meets are happening, however, they will be spread out between various pools in an effort to mitigate the spread of Covid-19. The schedules below are the current plans for All City Swim & Dive. Volunteers are likely to be required at various meets. More info coming!
