Summer 2021 - Practice Schedule:
Swim Practice Gear: Swimmers need to have these items at practice: goggles, a towel, a water bottle, a swim cap (highly recommended for long hair), and a snug-fitting suit (no two-piece suits for girls) for practices. Swimsuits should be comfortable for racing. We suggest that your swimmer have their own personal kickboard they bring to each practice.
Practice Protocol: Please be advised that only Blue Fins are allowed to be in the Barrington Pool during morning practices. For the afternoon practices before school ends, we will be sharing the pool with our Barrington neighbors. There are no private swim lessons during either of these times.
For safety and liability reasons, we do not allow anyone who is not a Blue Fin to be in the Main Pool or the Junior Pool during morning practices. If you are watching on the pool deck, please try to not sit right by the pool deck as that will distract the swimmers. The Junior Pool is closed, so if you have little ones with you, please understand that we can't allow them to splash and play in the water. The lifeguard coverage is for the swimmers on the Blue Fins, and that is why we can't allow anyone else to sit by the water's edge. Thank you for your understanding.
Please know that our coaches need the full attention of our Blue Fins' swimmers who are in the water practicing. When swimmers finish practice they need to return home so that the next practice group has the full attention of the coaches. The Barrington Pool officially opens to the community at 11am once school is out.
Also, please understand if we have to modify the practice schedules. We are still in the midst of a pandemic that necessitates flexibility!
