Weekly Update 9-4-20

Welcome back for the 2020-2021 Winter Short Course Season!!!

We certainly are glad to see all your swimmers back in the water and hoping to get a few more back from last season.  We have put into place several policies to help keep your kids safe and COVID free.  Not the least of which is requiring masks at all times unless in the water.  We have also placed markers all around the pool deck & walls to signify 6 feet apart so kids know where that would be.  We completely understand everyone’s concerns for safety and will always do our best to help you feel comfortable with entrusting your swimmers to us.  If you have any concerns with anything going on, please contact any one of the board members or coach’s with your concern.
