Safety remains our No. 1 priority. Tritons will stay in accordance with all YMCA, state, and local health guidelines. Practice capacity and duration will remain limited for all groups, and social distancing – staying six feet apart at all times – will be strictly enforced.
Coaches will wear face masks on deck except when all swimmers are in the water. Locker rooms will be off-limits, and bathrooms will be available for emergency use only, one person at a time. Drinking fountains will also be unavailable.
We expect all Triton swimmers, coaches, and parents to practice social distancing both at and away from the pool. By doing this, it shows that you respect your teammates, their families, the coaches, and the YMCA. If we feel anyone is consistently not adhering to social distancing guidelines (staying six feet away from others, avoiding large gatherings), that swimmer may be temporarily suspended from Triton practices. The Triton coaching staff and the YMCA also reserves the right to discontinue practices at any time should we feel safety expectations are not being met.
ARRIVAL to PRACTICE
All swimmers should arrive at the pool in their swimsuit with a full water bottle and an empty bladder. Scan your membership card when you arrive and when you leave.
Do not bring any items other than those necessary for practice and should not arrive more than ten (10) minutes before the start of their scheduled practice time. If a swimmer (with or without parents) arrives more than 10 minutes before their scheduled practice time, they must wait in their cars until it is time to be admitted. Social gatherings in the parking lots before or after practice is prohibited.
