Team News: 

TIBU Mask Protocol: TIBU Coaches and swimmers are required to wear masks at all times while not in the water at indoor facilities. We have had several instances where swimmers are arriving to practices without masks. We cannot continue to allow this so please be sure to have extra masks in vehicles and swim bags at all times. We will also try to have ziploc bags available but swimmers should be arriving with their own bags.

Swimmer Equipment: Please be sure to label your swimmers equipment. Fins, snorkels, kick boards and hand paddles all look alike. So please label them with your swimmer's name. 

TIBU Meet Participation:  Meet participation is optional to all swimmers in the High School Prep & Jr. Developmental group(s). Fees associated with meet participation (USA-S registration, meet fees & swimmer surcharges) are not included in the program dues and will be billed separately.

Practice Schedule Update:

 The following groups practice schedules have been updated.

Practice Attendance reminder: 

While our non-competitive groups have maximum practice allowances, our competition groups have minimum practice requirements. We encourage swimmers in the competition groups to exceed these minimums in order to see the progress they expect. For additional information about practice expectations please contact your athletes coach.

Facility News:  

Quince Orchard Swim & Tennis Club

  • Quince Orchard Inclement Weather policy:  As the bubble is a non-permanent structure, safety guidelines require that the bubble close for thunder/lightning and for high winds.  The guidelines for thunder closures are the same as those for your summer pool:  the pool remains closed for 30 minutes following the last audible thunderclap. If this should happen during a practice, coaches will supervise the children in evacuating the bubble and waiting out the closure in an indoor room.  If the weather forecast calls for high winds, Quince Orchard is likely to close as a precautionary measure.
