We are very excited to start our dryland practices and to get our kids together as a TEAM! We strive to create a safe environment for our swimmers and families, so here are some guideless for the upcoming dryland practices…
PREPARING FOR DRYLAND
- Swimmers should wash their hands with disinfectant soap and water (20 secs or longer) prior to arriving to dryland.
- Do not share equipment (jump ropes, towels, etc)
- Bring a full water bottle to avoid touching or tapping water fountains
- If your swimmer needs to sneeze or cough, do so into a tissue/towel or upper sleeve area
- Arrive early for coaches to set up dryland locations/placements.
- Avoid touching gates, fences, benches, etc when you can.
- Upon arrival, please have your swimmers refrain from coming into contact with their teammates! Communicate to them the importance of staying 6’ apart at all times. (this will be tough considering they may have not seen their swim families in a long time! Please respect your teammates during this time)
- DO NOT ATTEND PRACTICE IF YOU, OR A MEMBER OF YOUR HOUSEHOLD DOES NOT FEEL WELL.
- Follow directions from coaches for spacing and stay at least 6’ apart from others
- Do not make physical contact with others, such as shaking hands or giving high fives.
- Avoid touching your face.
- Avoid sharing food, drinks or towels.
- Maintain appropriate social distancing from other athletes when taking a break.
- Athletes (and coaches) who begin to cough/sneeze for any reason, must move away from others until coughing/sneezing dissipates.
- Leave the park as soon as reasonably possible after practice.
- Wash your hands thoroughly or use hand sanitizer after practice is over.
- No extra-curricular or social active should take place. (No congregation after dryland).
- Maintain social distance after practice and while waiting for parent pick-up.
- Athletes should change clothes and shower once at home.
Please communicate the above to your swimmers prior to each practice. Our coaches will be strict in enforcing these guidelines. We also expect there to be quite a bit of excitement seeing your friends again, but it is vitally important that we maintain safe practices so everyone can safely enjoy being a team again!
Please let me know if you have any questions.
