Swim Team Protocol During Covid

We ALL have a vital role to play in maintaining a healthy environment in our youth swim team program. Please review these guidelines carefully and share with your child.

 

Covid Policy at PRACTICE:

Due to Covid, we have the following request for swimmers and parents in order to reduce the risk of spreading the virus.

 

Drop Off and Pick Up - Parents are encouraged to drop off and pick up their swimmers curbside unless they are coming in to watch practice.  

 

When you enter the YMCA facility, you will have your temperature checked using a no-touch forehead thermometer. 

Note:If you have a fever and or are having symptoms of covid OR you do not feel well, please do not come to our facility till you are feeling better. 

 

Swimmers and parents/guardians will use hand sanitizer provided at the front desk after all temperatures have been taken.

 

There will be at most 4 swimmers in each lane. There will be lane assignments during the season that the coaches will make at the beginning of the season. 

Note: Coaches can move swimmers at discretion. 

 

We are asking that swimmers come swim ready. This means that swim suits are on, goggles are adjusted prior to practice, and if needed, swim caps are on. 

 

All equipment will be sanitized after each practice session. Swimmers are asked to use the same equipment for the entire practice (do NOT switch fins with a friend, etc) 

Note: If you would like to purchase your own equipment, visit our team store through the team website. 

 

Parents please help us practice/demonstrate social distancing. If you come watch your swimmer during practice, please limit who is with you, have 1 family per bench, and if you wish to talk to other families, wear a mask. 

 

 

 

Swim Layout:

Please read each session prior to practice to help with any confusion. We ask that swimmers/parents come no earlier than 5min to the session coming to. If you come earlier, please go to MPR B and wait for a coach/parent. The room will be sanitized after each session leaves the room. Swimmers and parents, please wear a mask in the MPR B room and in pool area.
