  2. TEMPERATURES - Coaches will take the temperature of each swimmer before each practice. 

  3. PAPERWORK - Each swimmer just bring the completed form for each practice. The form must be signed and initialed by a parent or guardian.

  4. NO PARENTS - Parents/Guardians are not allowed in the buildings. 

  5. ARRIVAL - Swimmers must arrive to practice 10-15 minutes early. The coaches will go inside FIVE (5) minutes before the start of practice. If you are late, the swimmer CANNOT enter the building, and will miss practice. 

  6. LOCKER ROOMS - Locker rooms are off-limits and not to be used by any swimmers. Bathrooms are only available for emergencies only. Your swimmer should arrive to practice with their suit already on.
