Start times for groups will shift weekly from 3:30 to 4:00 pm on a rotating basis. Be sure to check the list for your assigned start time.

The swim center and outdoor training in Contra Costa County remain open. We will continue programming with slight modifications to ensure that there is less traffic during transition times between training groups. It is important to review the guidelines below and adhere to all policies and procedures completely. Any swimmers failing to comply with policies will not be allowed to participate.

 

Guidelines from the City of Walnut Creek

 

·        Face coverings must be worn while entering and exiting the facility. To be removed prior to entering the water and replaced once face is dry after swimming.

·        Swimmers arrive no more than 5 minutes before scheduled swim time, and line up 6 feet apart, at the gate nearest the diving well.

·        Swimmers arrive in their swimsuits, prepared to swim - no locker room use, showers, or deck-changing.

·        Locker rooms shall be closed to the public, except for use as a restroom only.

·        Swimmers enter the gate, immediately walk to their assigned lane and put their belongings at the end of their lane. For example the even hour swimmers will place equipment and personal items in front of their assigned lane on the east end of the facility and odd hour swimmers will place items on the west end of the facility. They will enter and exit the pool from their assigned end of the facility.

·        Swimmers enter the pool and swim in the center of their lane (YOUTH: maintaining 8 feet between swimmers at all times during the swim session).
