News from the Pool- Week of September 13
CROSSGATES (XG) SCHEDULE
PINEHURST (PINE) SCHEDULE
AIR QUALITY: Thank you for your patience as we navigated the unsafe air quality over the past week. The health and safety of our swimmers and coaches is our priority. We are thankful for the opportunity to continue to work with the swimmers via Zoom. Since we are still offering practice, paying our zoom coaches and do not get prorated pool rent for days the pools are closed, we do not offer refunds for the days we are not in the water. We are looking to extend the current session’s end date, at no charge to you, if the poor air quality continues.
If we do continue to have poor air quality, we will continue with Zoom classes Monday through Thursday at 3:00, 4:00, 5:00 and 6:00. We will use meeting code 750 879 6072 with the password “team”. Look for the cancellation email before you head to the pool each day.
BAY is a small family run business that is operating at a loss every month. We have planned for this loss for the next 12 months, as the county health regulations restrict us from having the quantity of swimmers we need to break even. This does not account for refunds due to air quality pool closures. I appreciate your support of our program and look forward to “regular” days at the pool soon!
LAST CALL FOR TEAM PINS: For all those that were on last year’s team, don’t forget to pick up a commemorative team pin from the pool attendant when you check in.
SWIM CAPS: Race Team swimmers- if you haven’t picked up your blue or yellow cap from the pool attendant last week, be sure to get one. Here is a tutorial on how to put on your own cap (and for parents to write the name on the front and back of the cap.)
EQUIPMENT: If you are unsure of what your swimmer needs to bring to practice, please email email@example.com.
ZOOM ON DECK: Since we must limit the number of people on deck during practices and lap swim, we encourage you to watch practice on Zoom. To observe practice from your mobile device, please log into www.zoom.us:
Crossgates’ meeting code is 225 668 6688 with the password “team”
Pinehurst’s meeting code is 750 879 6072 with the password “team”
