|Sage YMCA Piranhas|
|Sage Swim Team - Fall|
Dear Sage Piranha Families,
Thank you for your patience over the past several months. The COVID-19 pandemic has had drastic effects on all our lives, including the shutdown of our facilities and the cancellation of our participation in the State and National meets, two events for which I know many of our swimmers had worked extremely hard.
Many of you have reached out regarding the status of the Sage Piranha Swim team as we move forward with reopening. The Y is committed to running safe programs for all who participate and this focus has not faltered during the on-going pandemic. We have opened up our Day Camp, Fitness Center, Group Exercise classes, and Lap Swimming slowly and with significant precautionary measures in place. We will take the same approach when opening up other programs including Swim Team. We rely on the guidance of local and state health officials and will at times be even more conservative in our approach as we have many groups utilizing our building at any given time. Keeping staff and participants safe will always be our top priority. With this in mind, we will be offering the following Piranha workouts for the Fall:
Piranhas modified Swim Team/ Practice Aug – Nov. 2020
Dates: August 25th, 2020 – Nov 24, 2020
Days: Tuesdays and Thursdays or Wednesdays and Fridays
Time: First group 7:00pm – 8:00pm, Second group 8:15pm – 9:15pm

All swimmers must have previously been on the Piranhas and training groups will be broken down by age.

13 and over will swim 8-9pm 2x a week
I understand this announcement will be met with mixed emotions and it may not fully answer long-term questions you have in regards to the Swim Team. Like most decisions being made during the pandemic, things have to remain fluid as we receive the most up- to-date information. Please know we are being prudent in all planning and decisions that we make to best serve our Community and Members.
