Lane Assignments for Week 1:
(If I have missed someone by accident, please reach out and let me know. If your child is out of town for the week, I have not included them on this week's schedule.)
Return policies and procedures:
Please take a moment to review the following procedures as well as the YMCA return procedures with your swimmer.
*Reminder swimmers need waivers to return to swimming. If you are having trouble with the waiver, please let me know and I will forward your message to Dawn so she can help you. I have not received the aquatics waiver yet, but will send it out as soon as I do.
* Parents will drop swimmers off at the main entry.
* Swimmers will come with swimsuit on, with a towel and slip on shoes. Swimmers may bring a bag with caps, goggles, labeled water bottle, which will be left on the pool deck.
* Swimmers may not share any equipment, caps, goggles, water bottles, etc. Please come prepared.
*DO NOT ARRIVE MORE THAN 10 minutes before your child's time slot. Coaches will be escoring the previous group out of the building prior to that.
*Upon entering the main entry, swimmers will be asked a series of questions, have their temperature taken, and be asked to wash their hands. They will then proceed straight to the showers to rinse off, and then wait on an X in the back hallway until their swim time begins. Swimmers will not be allowed into the pool area before their designated start time.
*Swimmers must wear masks or a bandana over their mouth and nose except when they are on the pool deck.
*Coaches will not wear masks on deck, but will remain socially distant at all times.
*Swimmers will not touch one another or each other's belongings. Swimmers will not hang on lane lines. Swimmers will remain to the right side of their lane at all times.
*There will be a zero tolerance policy for breaking rules. We understand that there is a learning curve for swimmers, and we will willingly remind swimmers of the rules. However, if a swimmer continues to break rules after being reminded once, we will ask you to pick up your swimmer. This is for the safety of everyone.
*Locker rooms will only be used for showering and bathroom emergencies.
PICK UP INSTRUCTIONS:
*Parents will pick up their swimmer at the bottom handicap door.
*Pick up will be similar to school pick up. Please line up and remin in your car.
*Pick up will be within 5 minutes of your swimmer's end time (Example: If your swimmer's practice ends at 10:45, please arrive between 10:45-10:50.
*Please do not line up early for pick up, as we do not wish to block the lower parking lot.
*Swimmers driving themselves are still asked to exit through the handicap door.
*If your child is going home with someone other than a parent or guardian we are familiar with, please notify us.
If you have any question or concerns, please feel free to reach out.
Looking forward to seeings everyone on Monday!
