COVID-19 Safe Start Policy

Klahanie Swim Team COVID-19 Safe Start Policy



  • No one will be permitted in the swim facility if they have been diagnosed with COVID-19 (have not recovered or are still in the 14-day quarantine period), had symptoms of COVID-19 or been exposed to someone who has been diagnosed with COVID-19 or suspected to have COVID-19 in the last 14 days. If your swimmer is showing any of these symptoms and they are related to an existing condition that is not COVID-19, please provide a doctor's note.
  • There will be a Covid-19 Attestation Questionnaire emailed out to all team families and must be completed prior to pool access.
  • All swimmers and parents must always honor distancing requirements at the pool facilities.  Pool area will be limited to swimmers, coaches, and active volunteers only.  When not in the pool, all participants will be required to follow all current Covid social distance & prevention guidelines.
  • Parents will not be allowed on deck during practices.
  • Temperature checks will occur prior to swimmers entering the pool area.
  • Swimmers should come in proper attire ready to practice.


  • Swim Training
    • There is a maximum of five people per lane.
    • The coach will have a diagram of safe lane configurations that demonstrates how swimmers will be able to maintain six feet of distancing, except when swimmers briefly pass each other.
    • No two swimmers shall remain within six feet of each other during resting periods.
    • Practice must be supervised by a certified coach 


  • All Klahanie Swim Team families, coaches, or staff congregating outside the pool areas are expected to follow the current Covid safety guidelines.
  • 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.
  • Covid procedures will continue to evolve as new public health announcements are made.  If King County modifies phase 3 during the season, we will make appropriate changes to practices and meets.
