Returning Waiver, Sign Up Genius

We're BACK!! 

Starting Monday, June 15 we will get back to running organized Plantation Swim Team practices. We will be offering workouts for all groups during morning/mid-day hours. For us to organize our team safely, we will need to break our groups into smaller (9 athletes each, one swimmer per lane) subgroups.

To help facilitate this, we need you to do two things:

1) Fill out this City Waiver and return it by email to Coach Terrell Woods (terrellwpst@aim.com). (Directions to fill out waiver - 1. Download the form. 2. Open with a PDF reader. 3. Fill it out. 4. Save. 5. Attach the filled out form in an email.)

2) Fill out your swimmer(s) name on this Sign Up Genius.

We will need both of these steps done by Friday, June 12. On Saturday, June 13 we will email you your swimmers subgroup workout time.

Please go over the bullet points below with your athlete.

 

Staying physically active is one of the best ways to keep the mind and body healthy. In many areas, people can visit parks, trails, and open spaces as a way to relieve stress, get some fresh air and vitamin D, stay active, and safely connect with others. We believe swimming, like walking, hiking, running, and cycling is a critical healthy activity within our community. Swimming does not require direct contact between teammates or coaches and social distancing can be maintained throughout practice. As with all exercise and activity at this time, swimming must comply with standards for social distancing and safety within the aquatic facilities. With the collaboration between Piranhas coaches and facility operators, we can create safe plans for using the aquatic facilities in order to promote physical and mental health opportunities in compliance with public health directives.

 

THE CDC (Centers for Disease Control and Prevention)

Thus far, the CDC has indicated that there is no evidence that the virus can spread through treated water. Proper operation and maintenance (including disinfection with chlorine and bromine) of these facilities should inactivate the virus in the water.

 

IMPORTANT INFORMATION FOR COACHES, SWIMMERS AND PARENTS

• Please stay home if you or someone in your household feels ill in any way, specifically with COVID-19 symptoms identified by the CDC (such as mild to severe respiratory illness with fever, cough and difficulty breathing).

• For athletes who have been diagnosed or have been in contact with someone who has tested positive for COVID-19, they must see a physician and be cleared for training prior to joining practice sessions.

• Athletes and families who travel outside the State of Florida will need to self-isolate for 14 days upon their arrival, before returning to practice.

• There will be no penalty for athletes missing practice sessions due to related COVID-19 issues or other illnesses.
