UIC CWAC Families,
It has definitely been a challenging and unprecedented spring / summer swimming season. We have been fortunate to find some pool time and it’s been a great opportunity for the kids to swim outdoors. With the fall now upon us our outdoor pools will be closing down soon.
UIC is well aware of our situation. Currently they are working through the start back of their school and the safety protocols for their athletic teams. They are going to make sure they have everything on track on their end before they start allowing rentals into the facility. As I mentioned last week their swim team is back in the water on a limited basis which is definitely a step in the right direction, but get a sense they are treading carefully with things. We have a tentative meeting scheduled for next Wednesday with their athletic director to discuss things so hopefully should have some additional information by the end of next week.
I know this has been a frustrating situation and thank everyone for their support and patience. I know it is challenging to try and plan without knowing what the plan is. There are many teams around the state that are in similar situations. Hopefully we can get some clarity on things next week which will allow us to try and make some decisions on how to proceed moving forward. As soon as we have a game plan and information will relay that on to our membership.
If you have any questions please do not hesitate to reach out.
