BLA Practice update, guidelines, test groups and practice groups

 

BLA update regarding starting practice! This email is long but you need to read all of it. It has our back to practice plan along with the practice groups and times.

First, we hope everyone is doing well and you are looking forward to swimming again! We are now in phase 3 of the Minnesota Grand Opening! STA pool will open for all groups on Monday, June 15th. We can use the pool from 6:30 to 2pm each day. ISD 196 has not set a date yet for when we can start using the district pools. We have groups set up for STA. It started at 1 per lane 1 week ago and now has changed to 4 per lane. We have back to practice plans that MUST be followed by all swimmers.

We will need volunteers for each group to help monitor the athletes.

Blackline Back on Deck Plan for Saint Thomas Academy

  • Signed USA swimming waiver required.
  • All swimmers will wear a mask into the building and continue to wear the mask until instructed to move to the water for practice.
  • All swimmers will enter through the upper doors by the circle drive and leave through doors at the deep end of the pool and then leave the building through the Flynn Hall doors
  • Swimmers will arrive and stand 6 feet apart outside in marked spots.
  • Temperature will be taken of swimmers as they arrive, and health questions will be asked. 
  • If a participant has a temperature, the participant will be sent home and not allowed to return until symptom free for 7 days.
  • We will document each swimmer and temperature on a clipboard and assign them a lane and position in that lane. 
  • 4 swimmers per lane or less, maintaining the social distance guidelines at all times. There will be one at each side of the pool and two starting at each set of flags.
  • They will be instructed not to touch anything.
  • A coach and/or volunteer for each time slot will be stationed at the entrance to check swimmers in and keep parents and swimmers not assigned to that time slot out.
  • Coach and volunteer will wear masks.
  • Coaches wearing masks are the only other people on deck.
  • Parents must stay in the parking lot if they stay for practice
  • No locker rooms. Kids should come ready to swim with suits on and no equipment bags.
  • Restrooms will ONLY be used in an emergency. Sanitized immediately after by volunteer/coach.  Please instruct swimmers to use restrooms before arriving to practice.
  • Sanitizing will happen after each group.
  • No group discussions/meetings.
  • No equipment will be used.
  • If a participant becomes ill while on site, the participant will be placed in quarantine in a classroom until a parent arrives to pick up. A coach or volunteer will stay with the participant and the room will be sanitized after the use.
  • Transition to bigger groups might happen later in the summer depending on guidelines.
