York Swim Club - Team Updates

York Families,

Please see updates and reminders below:

Practice Reminder: There will be no practices on Monday, October 11th 2021 due to the holiday.

Covid Protocol Reminder

We set out to be an example in keeping your children safe during the pandemic and we very confidently stand by that, however we need this to be a SHARED RESPONSIBILITY! Please take the next few moments to make sure you understand our protocols for future incidents.  

York Swim Club Health Agreement - Before your children were permitted to attend their first practice you agreed to our terms for the year - they are as follows:

  • To check your child before each York practice and you will not bring them if any of the following symptoms exist: Fever (100.4 or greater) in the past 24 hours|Fever Symptoms associated with COVID19 such as chills, sweats, felt "feverish," or had a temperature that is elevated for them /100.4F or greater. * Additional symptoms include: cough, shortness of breath, chest tightness, sore throat, new congestion/runny nose, body aches, loss of taste and/or smell, diarrhea, nausea and/or vomiting, fever/chills/sweats
  • Not to bring your child if they had any close contact in the last 14 days with someone with a diagnosis of COVID-19?
  • Not to bring your child if they have been deemed exposed and quarantined by their school.

If your child has been exposed and/or tests positive for Covid you need to let us know AS SOON AS YOU KNOW - Please do not wait - the sooner we have the information we can determine if others have been exposed to REDUCE THE RISK OF SPREADING THE DISEASE.

If you have any further questions about our protocols please feel free to reach out to Coach Mat Campet our Covid Protocol point of contact - [email protected] 

Renaissance Parking Reminder

It has come to our attention that York families have been parking in the spots at the Renaissance that belong to and are paid for by the residents.  Please remember that if you are staying or even there for a brief time to pick up your child that the only place to park is past the bubble all the way down to the right.  There are signs with our York sticker on it.  Please only park there!  If we continue to park in the resident’s spaces we risk losing the use of the Renaissance - please help us by following the rules.

Team Caps and Magnets

Team caps and magnets are being passed out at practice, please ask your coach at practice if you have not received them yet.  Please plan to wear the team cap if you are participating in a meet this weekend.


Team T-Shirts

Will arrive shortly and be distributed at practices in the next two weeks.
