Please find below the mandatory steps required to swim at Parkwood pool this summer. Be sure to read and adhere to all rules or your child will not be allowed to swim. Sign in procedure with temperature check is required for contact tracing.
There will be NO discussions with coaches at the pool or in the parking-lot as we need to clear the facility before regular members enter. Questions for coaches may be emailed to QueensAquaticClub@gmail.com or text to 929-445-7443. If you need a more formal discussion use either method to request a teleconference meeting with coaches.
As a club, our main priority this summer is keeping our members safe and helping to ensure swimming will be possible in the Fall and beyond. If we relax now, next season could be lost.
We are very excited to be one of, if not the fist, nyc club back to practice, so we need to do it correctly. Please be patient with us this first week, as we get more comfortable with the protocol it will become second nature.
