Woodstream Swim Team Registration OPEN!
Hello Woodstream Families!
It is with great excitement that this announcement is being made! We are opening registration for the 2020 Swim Team season. I am sure you all have many questions and I hope this email will provide answers. With so much information to provide, I am going to do this in bullet form. Coach Brianna will be back this year as your coach.
Practices for Swim Team are going to follow strict rules this year to safely accommodate all our athletes in compliance with COVID-19 requirements. Our coaches are working on the logistics of how each practice will be run and more of this information will be sent later this week and will also be posted on our website once we have a better idea on the number of athletes we have registered for the Team.
Swimmer drop off, no spectators
- 12 swimmers per practice (2 per lane starting at opposite ends).
- The number of practices per week will be finalized once registration numbers are final.
All practices will be in the AM before the opening of the pool
Unfortunately, this year there will be no afternoon/evening swim practice options
Traditional A & B meets have been canceled
All Championship meets have been canceled
Burlington County teams have joined together to consider a handful of dual meets for our swimmers if the opportunity presents itself.
All team social activities such as pep rallies, buddies and end of season banquet are postponed until the 2021 season.
We will be celebrating our Senior Swimmers this year details to follow
Mini Cuda’s, Learn to Swim Program
At this time, we will not be able to offer our beginner (Kick Boarder’s) or learn to swim programs. As you might be aware, we are permitted to have non-contact outdoor sports and while swimming is certainly non-contact, social distancing must be achieved, and hands-on swim instruction does not quite fit within COVID-19 permissible non-contact activity. However, if your swimmer has the strength and skill to pass the evaluation (requirements listed below), then they would be able to participate with the standard program this summer. Attempting to have evaluations conducted during the first week of practice. Time slots will be available for sign up or by emailing me and the coaches.
Please only sign up if you feel your athlete can successfully complete the requirements and please sign up for only one time slot. We do apologize but please know both programs are very important to the future of our Team and will return next season.
Evaluation Requirements -
Our normal season runs for 10 weeks. This season will run for 7 weeks approximately (June 23 - August 7). As a result, we have prorated Team registration as follows:
$65 - First Swimmer
5% discount for each additional swimmer (2 swimmers = $123.50 total, 3 Swimmers = $185.25 total, 4 Swimmers =$247 total)
$20 Coaches’ gifts (optional)
Registration is open
Registration is now open - please register as soon as possible, preferably by Friday, June 26th. Age group practice times will be solidified once team registrations are final and we have a total number of athletes so that we can appropriately stagger athletes to comply with COVID-19 requirements. It is envisioned that younger swimmers who completed a successful evaluation will need to register after June 19th, but no later than June 28th. After June 28th, we will be unable to add any new athletes into the team.
Coach Brianna and all our coaches are looking forward to seeing all our athletes next week!
We look forward to having you be part of our incredible swim team. Just click on the “Swim Team Registration” link and you will be redirected to the registration page on our team’s website: 2020 Swim Team Registration
