Drop Off Procedures


Drop Off Procedure:

  • Swimmer are to arrive no earlier than 5 minutes before their scheduled clinic time (so 2:55 for the 3:00 clinics, 4:00 for the 4:05 clinics, and 5:05 for the 5:10 clinics).
  • Swimmers will enter the building through the normal front door and will be asked several questions that all of us will be asked at any number of different places going forward. Additionally, their temperatures will be checked. Temps over 100.4 will not be allowed past the front desk. 
  • Swimmers who are demonstrating symptoms of ANY kind of illness should not come to practice. Please keep them home until symptoms have abated. 
  • Swimmers will enter the Y wearing their bathing suits (and any other clothes on top) AND a mask. There will be no changing into suits at the Y for swimmers of any age. Swimmers who wear caps and require assistance in putting them on should come to the Y wearing their caps. Neither coaches nor other swimmers will be permitted to provide assistance. Masks will be able to be removed once on deck (however, coaches will be wearing their mask for the duration of practice).
  • For our swimmers under age 12, Coach Laine will meet you in the lobby. Coach Seth will be on the pool deck to guide swimmers there. Swimmers 12+ can be dropped off at the front door and enter on their own. Parents will not be allowed to escort their children onto the swim deck -- no exceptions.
  • Parents will not be permitted to watch practice from the stands because that area will remain closed. Due to public areas in the Y being closed, it is strongly recommended that parents simply not wait for swimmers in the Y unless working out in the fitness room. For parents with swimmers under 12 years old, we do ask that you stay on Y property in case any issues arise (it will be best for you to workout or stay in your car). And please make sure that your phone number is up to date in TeamUnify.
