October 5, 2020
We are pleased to announce our opening of our Fall Training Session 2 for both swimming and diving. Our current sessions are running so smoothly and safely that both host clubs (Oreland Swim Club and Flourtown Swim Club) agreed to remain open past our initial end date of October 11th. Our Session 2 will run from October 12-31. Once again our goal is to conclude with a formal competition on Halloween.
We have looked at the progress of the swimmers/divers and the October outlook of weather and determined that we could move ahead with a second training session. Both pools are HEATED and maintained with a solar cover.
We wish that we could accomodate every one of our members, but due to lane spacing we once again have limited availability. Our Session 1 sold out in less that 24 hours so we expect the same.
Registration for non-SAC members will open on 10/7/20.
Once registration closes we will assign athletes to their training groups and site. In addition we will review our COVID operating plan for parents and athletes to follow. This will be emailed to our registrants before 10/12.
Swimming Practice 1 5:30-6:30pm and Practice 2 6:30-8pm Monday through Thursday
Saturday or Sunday (depending on your site) 9:30-11am and 11-12pm
Diving Practice - Tuesday, Thursday 5:30-7:30pm and Sundays 9:30-11:30 @ OSC
Our costs are driven by our rent/heat/operating of two outdoor pools in the month of October.
Thank you again for your support of SAC! This has been quite the journey but we are excited to continue to provide a safe and meaningful exprience for your children.
*****This is a COMPETITIVE training session. Only athletes with prior experience on a competitive team (includes summer team) should register for this session. If the athlete is not in the SAC, Suburban Aquatic, or in the USA Swimming or diving database, we will ask for proof of swimming times or diving scores.******
General Swimming Practice Information - once registration closes, athletes will be divided into two training groups. SPARTAN GROUP (OSC) and PRIDE GROUP (FSC). Both groups will train at separate facilities but at the same times. Training sessions will begin September 9th and our goal is to conclude with a virtual swim meet by 10/10.
