TYDE RETURNS TO THE POOL - WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW

TYDE RETURNS TO THE POOL - WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW

We’re back in the pool! We’re keeping it safe with new practice procedures including physical-distancing and new practice protocols.  

If you do not plan to participate in TYDE practices at this time, please notify Lisa Greene lisa@swimtyde.org or Bob Jennings Coachbob@swimtyde.org

TYDE account drafts will resume in June for all who are participating.

To reactivate a 2019-20 season TYDE account, click HERE to complete and submit a TYDE Registration Reactivation Form.  Please note that practices are being held at limited locations and with limited time slots available. 

CLICK HERE to view Zoom session recordings regarding specific processes and protocols for practice groups/locations.

All swimmers must complete a TYDE Covid-19 Waiver Agreement before attending a practice.  See Agreement copy below and click HERE to submit an electronic acknowledgement/signature.  TYDE reserves the right to turn away any swimmer from a practice if they have not completed a waiver and, or if, a swimmer has a temperature over 100 degrees Fahrenheit.

Please email lisa@swimtyde.org with any questions.

 

HOW TO SIGN UP FOR A PRACTICE SLOT:

  • A Sign-Up Genius link to reserve lane/time slots for the upcoming week’s practices will be emailed around noon on Sundays. 

  • Swimmers must select practice lane/time slots for each week.   Swimmers will be allowed to select their time and lane once the Sign-Up Genius link is sent out.  

  • To accommodate individual schedules, swimmers may sign up for different times on different days or sign up for the same time for the entire week.   

  • Swimmers should be prepared to choose a different slot if the time their preferred option is not available.

  • Any swimmer who does not show up for a slot they have signed up for will result in a missed future practice. 

  • When choosing a time slot please enter the swimmer’s name. 

  • Time slot swaps can be requested between swimmers directly from Sign Up Genius. 

  • A chosen time slot can be removed by logging in to your Sign Up Genius account. 

  • Please make every attempt to remove your name 24 hours prior to a practice if you can no longer attend.

To edit/delete a swimmer from a time/lane slot:

  1. You must have a Sign Up Genius account to edit, swap, or delete a practice lane/time slot.

  2. Log in to Sign up Genius with the same email address used for TYDE practice reservations (at the top right of the page on the Sign Up Genius website). 

  3. If you don't have a sign up Genius account with that email address, create one using the same email address being used for the TYDE practice reservations.

  4. Once logged in, click the tab "Invited to" then scroll down though your sign up invitations until you reach this current week of TYDE lane sign ups and select the current week.  Alternatively, you can go to calendar or list view and scroll to the time/lane slot you need to edit/delete.

  5. Scroll down to your swimmer's name, each place you have signed up you should see your swimmer’s name and three options:

  • Edit - to change name and possibly email

  • Swap - to request a change with someone else if all slots you want are full (best to coordinate with that someone else first)

  • Delete - to take your swimmer off that particular time slot

 

PRACTICE PROTOCOLS:

In keeping with NC and YMCA guidelines, TYDE has adopted new practice processes to ensure athlete, coach, and lifeguard safety.  These steps are based on available facilities, coaches, and local, state, federal, Y-USA and USA Swimming guidelines.

  • Prior to participating in a practice, a TYDE Covid-19 Waiver Agreement must be completed for each swimmer (see below).

  • Swimmers must wear a mask upon arrival to and departure from the pool.  Swimmers must come dressed in a swimsuit, wearing flip flops and cover-ups and bring a filled water bottle, towel, goggles, and swim cap.  Small drawstring bags will be permitted.  Do not bring swim back packs or swim equipment/bags.  There will be no locker room or shower access.

  • Arrive 10 minutes prior to the start of your practice time.  Wait in the car until signaled to line up.  Swimmers will line up at their assigned practice lane number outside the building.  Temperature will be checked prior to being permitted entry to the pool deck.  Swimmers must sanitize their hands with provided hand sanitizer once entry is permitted.

  • 6’ physical distancing in and out of the water will be observed at all times.  Once entry to pool deck is granted, each swimmer will proceed to pre-assigned lanes and follow the instruction of the on-deck coach.  All personal items will be placed in bins at the end of each lane.  Please watch Coach Bob’s  TYDE Talk: Return to the Pool plan for additional instructions and guidelines.
