Summer Maintenance Program

 

Unlike previous years, Gators will not offer general developmental swim clinics to the public this Summer 2020. Gators will only be offering Summer Maintenance Programs for current club-swimmers only. This is to help current club-swimmers restart/maintain their swimming due to the Covid-19 shortened 2019-2020 season, and to help them prepare for the coming 2020-2021 swim season.

 

Maintenance sessions will most likely be targeted towards LMR-qualified club-swimmers. Each maintenance session will be specific towards particular swim group(s). Club-swimmers should only register for the group session(s) they are CURRENTLY in, otherwise they will be cancelled by the program administrator. There will be limited slots for each maintenance session due to SwimBC physical distancing guidelines.

 

Unless otherwise noted, most dryland practices will be conducted remotely via Zoom meetings.

Swim practices will be conducted at the pool indicated in the session registration.

The cost of the sessions reflect the cost of the private pool rental.


PLEASE NOTE THAT THERE ARE NO REFUNDS/CANCELLATIONS.

 

Club-swimmers that wish to participate must read and complete the following documents before the start of their maintenance sessions:

Dear Gators members:

 

As British Columbia public health authorities develop guidelines to lift some restrictions on gathering in a responsible way, we  have been working with Swim BC to understand the recommendations our Chief Provincial Health Officer and how they best apply within our sport and club environment.

The attached  “Safe Return to Swimming Plan”  has been developed for our club in order to ensure that:

  • health and safety of all individuals is a priority;

  • activities are in alignment with provincial health recommendations;

  • modifications to activities are in place in order to reduce the risks to each or our swimmers;

  • our sport is united and aligned on a plan to reopen throughout the province.

While we do hope things will return to normal in the not too distant future, currently this  “Safe Return to Swimming Plan”  will be the new normal until we are advised otherwise by public health authorities.

If you choose to participate, you must follow these rules:

  • If you don’t feel well or are displaying symptoms of COVID-19, you must stay home;

  • If you have traveled outside of Canada, you are not permitted at a practice until you have self- isolated for a minimum of 14 days;

  • If you live in a household with someone who has COVID-19 or is showing symptoms of COVID- 19, you must stay home;

  • Wear your suit to practice (no changing at the pool);

  • Wash your hands before participating;

  • Bring your own equipment, water bottle and hand sanitizer;

  • Comply with physical distancing measures at all time;

  • Avoid physical contact with others, including shaking hands, high fives, etc.;

  • Leave the facility as quickly as possible after you finish the practice.

Our  “Safe Return to Swimming Plan”  is based on current public health guidance. While we are all doing our best to minimize the risk of exposure to COVID-19, while the virus circulates in our communities it is impossible to completely eliminate the risk. Each participant must make their own decision as to whether it is in their best interest to resume participation at this time. You must take into account your own circumstances and make the decision that is right for you. 

Should you choose to join us, we require your full cooperation with our  Safe Return to Swimming Plan” .

Sincerely,

 

Club President
