COVID-19 Safe Start Policy

Klahanie Swim Team COVID-19 Safe Start Policy


  • Only returning Klahanie Swim Team (KST) members will be eligible to participate for the 2020 season.
  • Those KST members who choose to skip the 2020 season are eligible to return for the 2021 season.
  • During Phase 2 – all practices will be limited to 12 swimmers per practice per pool
  • Swim at one pool – Your swimmer will swim at only one pool for this season. We won’t switch between pools to help with maintaining safe and healthy protocols.
  • Healthy Swimmers – no swimmer should practice if he/she is sick or if they have been exposed to anyone who is known to have COVID-19.
  • Come in your swimsuit – ready to practice. There are no dry land workouts this season and locker rooms will be closed except for emergency bathroom breaks.
  • Drop Off and Pick Up – Swimmers will enter through one entrance and exit through another entrance. Please do not enter the pool deck until signaled by a coach at the appropriate time
  • No late arrivers or late pick up. Coaches will be working with one practice group at a time and won’t have the ability to supervise swimmers from the previous practice session until a parent arrives.
  • All swimmers and parents must honor distancing requirements at all times at the pool facilities. Coaches will make every effort to help swimmers understand distancing requirements during practices but it is up to each swimmer and family member to take responsibility for their own safety.
  • Parents will not be allowed on deck during practices.
  • Phase 3 – If King County moves to this phase during July, we will make appropriate modifications and add longer practices with bigger groups.
  • The KST will be following the facility cleaning protocols established by the Klahanie Home Owners Associations which manages the Klahanie Pools.
  • CDC Note – According to the CDC, COVID-19 transmission is not likely through contact with properly disinfected water. Specifically – “There is no evidence that the virus that causes COVID-19 can be spread to people through the water in pools, hot tubs, or water playgrounds.
