I apologize for the length of time between my emails. The current circumstances require careful navigation as we head back to normal. As we begin outdoor practices, I want you to know that safety is our top concern. We will be using guidlines developed by the CDC, USA Swimming, the PA Department of Education and myself. With that in mind, all swimmers will be asked to cooperate with these procedures.
Athletes who are ill, have a temperature, or have been in contact with someone who has tested positive for COVID-19 recently, should not be sent to practice. They will be asked about their health prior to practice. Swimmers are encouraged to bring their own equipment and water bottles with them to practice. Equipment we provide will be sanitized. There will be no sharing of equipment allowed. We will be maintaining social distancing at all times. Athletes will be encouraged to shower at home after practice.
Penn Trafford School District is developing a plan for resuming athletics at the schools. I will be a part of that process and will keep our membership informed as this unfolds. I am excited to see you all again soon!
