For Simply Swimming Suit Try on
Before we get together we wanted to go over a few protocols that will take place this year for our fittings. First things first we want to make sure we are doing our part to ensure everyone’s safety as well as follow recommended CDC guidelines.
We will have a hand sanitization station for all swimmers to use before AND after they try on the team suit.
Anyone present at the fitting must be wearing a mask.
To limit the amount of people trying on goggles, we are asking that you bring or have knowledge of your swimmers current goggle. We are more than happy to fit you for new goggles if needed and are prepared to take the proper steps to clean the goggles in between each fitting. We will have our sample fit goggles with us however we are just asking to eliminate as much contact as possible.
Please have your swimmer wear their practice suit to the fitting or bring it with so we can see what size they are currently wearing to give us a more accurate idea at what suit size we should be fitting them in.
Please come at your scheduled fitting time to eliminate large rushes or crowds. We will have enough staff to accommodate the amount of people who have signed up so in order to ensure timely fittings and proper safety we ask that you are there for your scheduled time.
Again, we are very excited to see everyone and happy to help everyone with their swim team needs. Any and all help or guidance is appreciated. We look forward to the 24 th and hope we can all work together to make this a successful and safe fitting!
