Specific to our site:

Entry/Exit of Practice

1. All athletes must check-in at the front desk each day and answer health screening questions. Please stagger your arrival.

2. All athletes must wear a mask. The mask can be removed once you are on the pool deck and have placed your clothes and gear in their appropriate spots, and are ready to get in the water.

3. Athletes must maintain social distancing while arriving, on deck, in practice, and when leaving. Swimmers should make sure the spot they pick to put their clothes is 6 feet from anyone else.

4. Athletes will be dismissed 1-2 lanes at a time and will need to gather their belongings, dress quickly, and exit the pool quickly.  If waiting for parents they must continue to social distance.

5. Parents need to be prepared to pick up their swimmers immediately after their practice has ended.


6. Arrive no sooner and pick up no later than a few minutes prior or after practice.

Locker Rooms:

1.   Swimmers are encouraged to wear their suits to and from the pool. Locker rooms will not be available. A changing room will be available only if absolutely necessary.  Swimmers must disinfect upon leaving the changing room. Deck changes are not allowed and anyone seen doing so will be suspended indefinitely from practice per USA Swimming rules.

On Deck: 

Parents Observation

While Outdoors: Parents may observe practice but need to keep to the tables and chairs on the side of the pool. Mask must be worn if within 6 feet of another person.

Once the bubble is up: Parents will not be permitted on deck but may observe through the glass windows.

During Practice:

Start Position:

1. Each swimmer will be assigned a lane and start position at the start of practice. 

2. Swimmers need to bring their fins to this start position and leave them on deck closest to their start position.

Social Distancing

1. Swimmers will continue social distancing during training.


1. Swimmers should bring and use their own equipment - Equipment should be disinfected before and after practice.  We will just be using fins, cap, and googles

2. Equipment should not be shared.


Use Of Bathroom  

1. Swimmers are strongly encouraged to go to the bathroom prior to coming to practice. In the event that the swimmer absolutely must use the bathroom, age-appropriate swimmer or their parent will need to wipe down all surfaces with wipes (provided) and use hand sanitizer before re-entering the pool.


1. If a swimmer becomes sick during a practice. The swimmer will be immediately separated and parents will be called to provide transportation for the ill swimmer. 

Staggered Dismissal:

With limited pool time, we will stagger the dismissal only by 1-2 min dismissing four or five swimmers at one time every two to three minutes.  We ask swimmers to quickly get their clothes and exit the deck.


Circle Swimming:

1. Swimmers need to demonstrate proper circle swimming procedure, in order for us to keep a safe training environment.

Lost and Found:

There will not be a lost and found. Club policy is that any articles left will be thrown away. 


Coaches will wear masks as swimmers enter the pool and in the event of any discussions that would take place within the 6-foot social distancing distance. Coaches may remove masks once practice begins and swimmers are in the water if they are more than 12 feet fro the closest swimmer.

Due to tight practice constraints, and coaches need for social distancing, coaches will not be able to talk to parents during practice, unless it is an emergency. Please text or email and we will get back to you as soon as possible.



Afternoon practices: If thundering or prediction of storms/ flash flooding, Coach Tay will send an email/SMS by 2:30 pm to cancel all practices for the afternoon. If it begins to storm 30 min prior to practice or during practice and the practice wasn't called - practice will be canceled and swimmers will be dismissed. Please pick up your swimmer promptly.

Inclement Weather:

If schools are canceled due to inclement weather, practice will be canceled. If inclement weather is predicted to move in within 2 hours of practice time, practice will be canceled. 


Please sign up for SMS notification and then verify your number in Team Unify. This will allow coaches a quick text communication to the group.
