As we are moving forward through this pandemic we had to restructure some of our groups to offer an even safer and more personalized environment for all participants. Pools open June 22nd. For availability please Contact Us.

With this new set up we are looking for two swimmers per lane on the opposite side of each wall and with a coach on each side. All swimmers will practice in the same lanes in every practice until we move to the second phase. As you understand this set up requires more lane space and extra coaching staff. As our expenses arising under this new normal and working on assisting all families and swimmers, we will not transfer the cost or increase dues at that time. We want to offer the opportunity no matter what to bring your children back in the pool to help not only their physical but also their mental health. Working in that direction please consider that the new groups that you will sign up will be for specific days and times and there would be no makeup practices in any case. Every spot is secured and designated specifically to your swimmer and therefore please consider before accepting that we won’t be able to make any changes or offer any refund or credit for days or remaining of each month that you won’t be able to follow.
Space will be limited and will maintain a waiting list.

Below you will find all info on what ElitSwim will do during that time. We have developed a four-phase progression while we monitor info from USA swimming, CDC, and County to start our practices. Depends how the pandemic is developing will move forward and open slots for more swimmers to take part in our programs till we reach the point on the last phase that we are back on our regular groups and programs.
Some changes to the schedule and guidelines might occur without notification as we constantly receive updates in regards to the current situation and our effort is to keep you and our coaching staff safe at all times.

1) In the first phase, we will open up with two swimmers only per lane, each one on the opposite wall. The diagram below shows swimmers set up in the pool.
2) In the second phase will start adding swimmers(one extra swimmer per wall) from our waiting list. So it will look like the diagram below. All swimmers from the first phase will be moved in the same lanes precautionary while the added new swimmers will be placed all in the space that will open up.
3) The third phase is to still work on the opposite side of the wall but start going back partially little by little on our regular group programs
4) The fourth phase is we are completely out of this pandemic and back on our regular programs.

Important note for the First Phase:
a) Each sibling will count as one spot as we do have limitations for two swimmers per lane. Later on, easing and up guidelines we can count it as one spot but with no more than three swimmers total per lane*.


FACILITY DIAGRAM
We will have one coach per side to train our swimmers limiting our group number to one swimmer per lane/side
and up to six swimmers per group.

SECOND PHASE


 

GUIDELINES SWIMMING SAFELY
Please read carefully

 

PREPARING TO SWIM - Protect against infections:

  • Please make sure you arrive dressed in your swimming attire. Please also check from home to have their equipment ready(a pair of goggles and swim caps) as the locker rooms and showers will be closed in accordance with County requirements. There will be limited restrooms available.
  • We recommend leaving your swimmers to come on their own inside the pool or escort them by the gate if they are younger and avoid entering the pool. They need to be ready with their swimsuits on to get in the water.
  • Swimmers will be required by the pool rules to wear a face mask before and after practice.
  • Parents can stay in the car and if swimmers are very young and need assistance to come in the pool then you can escort them. Guidelines for parents in the pool please read below. Also, City will soon post some info too.
  • Arrive as close as possible to when activity begins considering the time that your swimmer needs to pass the check-up point in each pool.
  • Do not share equipment.
  • Bring a full water bottle to avoid touching a tap or water fountain handle.
  • Wash your hands with a disinfectant soap and water (for 20 seconds or longer) or use a hand sanitizer if soap and water are not readily available, before going to the pool
  • If you need to sneeze or cough, do so into a tissue or upper sleeve/arm area.
  • Avoid touching gates, fences, benches, etc.
  • Swimmers should be encouraged and empowered to avoid practice if they are feeling ill or a member of your household does not feel well. 
  • If a swimmer feels or expresses being ill, coughing or sneezing profusely, or has a fever they should stay home or will be sent home immediately. 
  • If a swimmer or coach is sent home or misses practice due to illness they are required to receive a Doctor’s clearance before returning to practice. 
  • The coaching staff will wear masks on deck and keep 6 feet distance at all times.

 

WHEN SWIMMING

  • Follow directions for spacing and stay at least six feet apart from others.
  • Remind your child to go in the same lane every time.
  • Swimmers to utilize the center of the lane and into the wall or lane line in the pool

  • Avoid touching your face.
  • Avoid sharing drinks.
  • Maintain appropriate social distancing from other athletes when taking a break.
  • Wear your suit to and from practice.
     

AFTER SWIMMING(Leaving Practice)

  • Swimmers should dry off, dawn masks upon exiting the pool. USA Swimming recommends they arrive and leave in swimsuits, avoid using the bathrooms, and shower at home. 
  • Leave the facility as soon as reasonably possible after practice.
  • Wash your hands thoroughly or use a hand sanitizer after leaving the pool.
  • Do not use the locker room or changing area. > Shower at home, wear your suit to and from practice
  • No extra-curricular or social activity should take place. > No congregation after swimming.
  • Any and all equipment utilized during the practice should be cleaned and disinfected before the next use. 
  • If restrooms or showers are needed or utilized, please refer back to the facility guidelines for cleaning and disinfection. 

 

EXPECTATIONS FOR TRAINING

  • Social distancing will need to be accounted for in practice planning.
  • We limit group sizes with no more than two swimmers per lane and staggered sessions.
  • Increase activities by 10% each week when we return.
  • The focus is on a healthy environment, quality experience, progressive training, and safety. 

 

If Parents are allowed to remain at practice they are required to follow the same guidelines. Parents should: 

  • Wear face coverings/masks. 
  • Have the same screening process as swimmers before entering the facility. 
  • Maintain 6ft or greater of social distancing. This can be achieved by designating observational
    places throughout your facility. 
  • Avoid using restrooms and drinking fountains. 
  • Sanitize hands upon entering and exiting your facility. 
  • Any deck furnishings, benches, chairs, etc. used will need to be cleaned and disinfected before
    the next use.

The below response act applies to our staff as well and will determine your participation in our programs:

Coronavirus Response Act.

° Have you been ill with fever, chills, cough, or body aches in the past 14 days?

° Has anyone in your household had these symptoms in the past 14 days?

° Have you or anyone in your household traveled internationally in the last 14 days?

° Have you or anyone in your household traveled to a location in the United States where an increased incidence of COVID–19 has been reported in the last 14 days?

° Have you been told by a healthcare provider that you should self-quarantine due to a potential COVID–19 exposure or are you suspected of having COVID–19?

° If your answer to any of these questions is yes, consider seeking medical advice and self-quarantine. Notify your supervisor that you will not be able to work.

° The reason behind this set of questions is being able to pre-screen people coming into the aquatics facilities. If we can eliminate those who are openingly symptomatic or may have been exposed then we dramatically lessen the risk of infection in our programs. This will lead to a better sense of safety for those inside the pool. It will cut down on those who could carry the virus. It is not absolute. It is a further layer of protection.


 

This new normal will take a little bit of time to adjust for the City and for all of us. It is important to follow these guidelines to keep us all safe at all times.
Please be patient and we are looking forward to seeing you all back again in the pool.
