Return to Swim Documents

These documents will be updated as public health measures evolve throughout the swim season. 

 

Alberta Health Daily Checklist- updated Feb 19 2021; this MUST be reviewed by swimmers prior to participating at each training session; 

***  In addition to the Checklist, KSC requests that if your swimmer or a member of your household ( including siblings) has a COVID-19 test booked or is waiting for COVID-19 test results, that your swimmer ( and their sibling(s) if they are a KSC member) not attend practice until a negative result is received. This will help us keep all of our athletes, coaches and families healthy and safe.***

If your swimmer is identified as a close contact of COVID-19, as per the Alberta Health Daily checklist, they may not attend training until 14 days from last exposure.

More questions about KSC training and COVID-19 ?  Please review the KSC COVID-19 FAQs.

Please direct any COVID-19 related training concerns to KSC COVID-19 Response Coordinators Mike Meldrum and Dr Lori Gohill by emailing [email protected] . All information will remain strictly confidential.
