Hope everybody enjoyed the workouts for the S&C Challenge with Water! Wow, it is already the second week of school!! Hope you were able to get some exercise in last week with all of the rain.
We are continuing to work hard with workouts for S&C and water. I am going to ask that you complete as many as you can to stay in shape. We will be back in the water, hopefully, soon. I am updating our bulletin board at the pool. Please send me any pictures you would like me to post about what you did while on covid-19 break on the team bulletin board. (With parent’s permission of course.)
The swim center pool is open for reservation lap swim for resident and non-resident team members.
For non-resident team members: Circle C is now going to allow lap swim reservations to be made by registered Select participants during Phase 1 of our reopening. Participants will need to register for the team and pay the annual registration fee before they will have access to lane reservations. More information for non-resident team members may be found in the email sent on September 4, 2020 or on the Team Unify team website.
Reservations for resident and non-resident team members are as follows:
Weekday slots are available at 7am, 8am, 9am, 4pm, 5pm and 6pm.
Saturday and Sunday slots are available at 10am, 11am, 12pm, 1pm, 3pm, 4pm, 5pm and 6pm.
It is important to know that reservations are for Ages 10 and up. Ages 10-12 will need to have a parent there with you. They may sit at the end of your lane but cannot swim in your lane. The pool policy is one swimmer per lane.
Please remember that registration will have to be completed by all swimmers when the team returns to the water. The HOA is moving forward and has a plan for our return. I shared the plan during the team zoom calls last week, there is not a date assigned as of yet. They want all swimmers, coaches and staff to safe when we return. As of now the team is in Phase 2 of the pool re-opening plan. This uses the Public Health Department data; effectively maintain 7-Day Moving Average of new hospitalization below 10 for the previous 14 days. When this occurs we will begin placing our plan in motion to return to the pool. I am excited to have this plan and look forward to seeing everybody in the water soon! Until then I will continue to send out 3 swim workouts on Monday included with the S&C Challenge for those who have access to a swimming pool. If you have any questions send me a text or email. I am looking forward to learning of the date for swim team safely return to the pool I will let everybody know.
Our weekly hangout on zoom is on Wednesday. These are at the beginning time of the group workout practice now that school has officially began for all swimmers. Please use the links provided in the email sent out on Tuesday, September 1, 2020. If you are missing your teammates and coaches, join us to catch up and visit. Each group has an assigned time to dial in and we can all visit. We will have team Zoom calls every Wednesday until we have team practice.

This week will challenging but I encourage you to hang in there as I know you can do all of the workouts. Be sure and hydrate throughout your workout. This week will have a variety of temperatures. Be sure and stay safe. If you have any questions about an exercise read the definition page send me a text. I will answer as soon as I see it. Do not worry if you do not have mini dumbbells or weights at your house. Everything will be able to be done with things you have at home. So, lace up those running shoes, grab that water bottle, air up that exercise ball and get prepared for a week of great fun! : )
