Pool Closure, March Clinic Canceled, New start date 4/13/20

Here is an update since yesterday’s communication on our current situation given the dynamic circumstances surrounding COVID-19.

Today, the San Juan School District canceled our permit for use of their pool at Bella Vista. They have canceled all permits for their facilities through April 12th. With considerations beyond this date being decided during Spring break (4-6-4/10).

On behalf of the FOD Board, I regret to inform you that the remainder of March Clinic (3/16-3/27) has been cancelled. We will be issuing $50 refund for each swimmer registered.

Our new swimmer swim assessment on 3/21/20 has also been canceled.  Our coaches will be assessing new swimmers during the first week of practice.

Our start date for the season has been pushed back from April 6th to April 13th. If you are a past teammate and were planning to register for this 2020 season, please submit your registration online at this time. If you have not paid yet, you do not need to until the season officially starts in April. We need to know how many swimmers we are going to have on our team to plan for an adequate coaching staff for the number of swimmers.

Again, this is a highly fluid situation and I will update any changes as they are made known. We appreciate your patience and understanding. I know my two girls are disappointed with this outcome but we look forward to getting back in the water in about 4 weeks. I will keep you posted.

Thank you!

Melissa Serafini

FOD Board Secretary
