Return to Practice Reminders!

Welcome Back DC Wave!

Below are a few reminders and helpful information about registration and practices beginning this week. 

  • While practices begin on Monday, please double check your registration so you are clear about which day/time your swimmer’s pod is practicing. Some groups do not start until Tuesday, Wednesday or Friday of this week.

  • Swimmers should have their swimsuit already on underneath their clothing when they arrive at the pool. The locker rooms and showers will be closed. 

  • Swimmers are reminded to bring their own equipment with them to practice. There will not be any equipment available to borrow. Equipment must be taken home with them after each workout (please see equipment guide for training groups if you don't remember what equipment your swimmer is supposed to have). It's ok if your swimmer doesn't have all of these items on the first day, as we will mostly be working on basic skills to begin with, but you do want to start taking an inventory of what they are missing and making plans to purchase those items for later in the season. 

  • Anyone not registered for a program or lap lane reservation will not be allowed inside the facility. Parents will not be allowed inside to watch practices.

  • Parents please plan to pick your swimmer up in the parking lot at the end of  practice. When waiting to pick up your swimmer please stay in your vehicle or maintain 6 feet of physical distance between yourself and others if waiting outside your vehicle. 

  • Swimmers must enter through the front of the Aquatic Center, and exit out the side doors leading to the parking lot.

DPR Registration Link

(Registration Opens Wednesday, October 14)

Practices will begin, Monday, September 19. Per DPR policy, swimmers must be registered prior to attending practices. Individuals not registered for a program or for a lap swim time slot will not be permitted inside the facility. Training groups are divided into pods so as to adhere to DOH guidance on lane space capacity. Each pod has a different practice day and/or time, so please pay close attention to which pod you are registering your swimmer for. For contact tracing purposes swimmers will only be allowed to attend practices of the pod they are registered for (no hopping around, sorry). A copy of our new practice schedule is also attached.
