It was an interesting week for youth sports in Illinois. Governor Pritzker released his plan for youth sports which will take effect on August 15 - click here. Additionally, the IHSA is moving ahead with 4 sports for the fall, one of which is girls swimming and diving. Unfortunately, UIC has pushed their reopen date back to September 7. We will continue to work with them in the hopes of getting back in at that time as well as starting back at EP as well.
We will continue our Sat / Sun practice times at the Oak Lawn Central pool through the end of August. Next week we will offer practices at Brother Rice High school from 8:30 AM - 1 PM during the week and sign up for that will be sent out tomorrow morning at 9 AM. There will be no CWAC practices from August 10-14. Starting August 17, we will offer weekday practices from 2:30-7 PM at the Oak Lawn pool through September 4. That should hopefully get us through to being back at UIC.
A reminder of the Chicago Emergency Travel Order and ask families to quarantine if they are returning from these 22 states.
