September Swim Practice Schedule and a sneak peek at plans for the fall!!

Happy Labor Weekend, Stingray Nation!

I’m sure that everyone has heard the FANTASTIC news that we will be able to return to indoor pools soon! There were lots of happy tears in our home when that announcement was made!

Many of you are wondering what our season will look like, and we are excited to share that with you as soon as we have our plans a little more concrete. But, we WILL be returning to indoor swimming, and this will likely be occurring at the end of September. Some things that we DO know and that you can plan on right now:

  • We will be returning to the more traditional five workout groups (Senior/Gold/Silver/Bronze/Miniray), and we will be swimming indoors at the YMCA.
  • We will have an evaluation week before we begin the next session. Placement in proper groups will be very important for us to be able to keep practices running smoothly.
  • We will be continuing the safe distance practice protocol (station-to-station swimming) that we introduced this summer. As a result, we will be limited on how many swimmers we have in each practice group. The good news is that we are working on a great schedule that should allow us to have even more swimmers participate!
  • Much like the outdoor swim sessions, we will NOT be using locker rooms at the YMCA to change (at least for now). Swimmers will need to arrive and depart in their suit. As the weather gets chilly, you will want to consider investment in a plushy bath robe or swim parka that kids can throw on after practice so they don’t get cold.

I know this is super vague (but c’mon…super vague communication is the new normal…), so I know there will be questions, and I know when I tell you “we’re working on it and when I know, you’ll know,” you’re legitimately going to believe me. Because when have I EVER been shy about communications? laugh
