Return to Wheaton College Pool

Monday, May 10

 

The following information is set up to navigate us through the end of the current Covid situation and back to normality. This will take time.  Coaches are using the summer as a transition and ask for patience as we move forward. 

 

Facilities

  • Team size capacity will increase 25% when back at Wheaton College
  • Coaches are in conversations with Wheaton Park District and a local Wheaton outdoor facility for summer use.  This additional space will allow for more swimmers.

 

Long Course Registration

  • Long Course will start May 10 and end with last championship meet in late July/early Aug
  • Swimmers currently in April/May FMC Session will have priority registration for Long Course.
  • Registration for those not currently swimming will open 3 days later.
  • All registration will be first come no exceptions as there is a maximum capacity number that we cannot exceed.

 

Meets

  • Coaches are putting together a meet schedule that will include local dual meets and larger USA swim meets across the borders where restrictions are more flexible.

 

Covid Guidelines

  • Covid is not over.  We will continue to follow all facility, State of Illinois, and USA Swimming rules on masks, number of swimmers per lane, overall pool capacity and social distancing.

 

Fall Expectations

  • The goal is to return to a normal team season which includes larger capacity numbers, practice times and regular meets.
