USA Swim, City of Griffin, Parks & Rec Updates

In an effort to keep you all updated, we are sharing information as we receive it.

  • USA Swimming released a detailed document on how to follow COVID-19 response protocols with social distancing during swim practice. It is possible, but would be a tremendous challenge for us as a recreational team.
  • The City of Griffin Commissioners met on Tuesday night, and they have not hired a pool manager.
  • The Spalding County Parks & Recreation Board met on Thursday night, and voted to suspend all recreational sports until June 12th. This includes our Griffin Swim Team, so we will not be able to begin practice on June 1st as we had hoped.
  • The GRPA District and State competitions have been canceled for 2020. With this news, we believe there will not be any other official swim meets this summer.
  • We have a Board Meeting scheduled next Friday, May 22nd, to discuss our options at this point. We appreciate your patience and understanding as we all wait.
