Team Update FALL UPDATE # 8

TEAM NEWS THIS WEEK! 

As of November 1st the Y has opened the showers in the locker rooms. 

  • TEAM POLICY No Wahoo swimmers are to be using the showers!  This will prevent having too many swimmers in the showers at the same time without masks, etc. and having to worry about cleaning and sanitizing the showers.  The Y is aware of our Team Policy and please explain to your swimmers, that they do not want to be caught in the showers by members or staff using the facilities.  Thank you for cooperation in this matter.  They are still allowed to change, WITH MASKS ON!

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Thank you to everyone that helped this weekend to make our meet a success this past weekend.  Without all of you, we could not have the meet.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Swimmers did a great job with using plastic bags to store their masks when they got to the blocks.  This procedure was changed to keep masks on until they get to the block and then remove them only to race, putting them back on as soon as they get out of the water.  This was the first time we changed the procedure for the safety of the swimmers, officials and timers.  I am positive that the more we do this the better we get!
