COVID-19 Swim Practice Requirements


CHECK IN/DROP-OFF:

  • Swimmers should arrive in their swimsuits. Changing rooms will be closed at this time.
  • Swimmers and coaches will be screened prior to entry, which will include a touchless temperature check. If any of these apply to your swimmer, they will not be permitted to enter the facility for 14 days:
    • A fever of 100.4 or higher, has had a respiratory infection, cough, shortness of breath, OR
    • Had any contact in the previous 14 days with someone who has a confirmed diagnosis of COVID-19 or is under investigation for COVID-19 or is ill with a respiratory illness, OR
    • Has traveled in the previous 14 days on a cruise or internationally to countries with widespread, sustained community transmission.
  • Swimmers cannot enter the facility more than 5 minutes before the start of practice. Please don’t be late, as we have to keep practices moving and won’t be able to restart or adjust for late arrivals.
  • Swimmers should arrive in sandals/shoes that are easy to remove. Footwear will be removed when they enter the pool area.
  • Swimmers should check-in with a coach and go directly to their assigned lane and assigned end to avoid congregating on the pool deck.
  • Parents will not be allowed to sit in the pool area during practice. COMING SOON: SpotTV, Sun Country’s online streaming video app! This will be a way for all parents to view their child’s practice online!
  • Masks/facial coverings will be required for all coaches.

DURING PRACTICE:

  • Swimmers should bring a full water bottle. Water fountains will be closed at this time.
  • There will be no shared equipment to borrow at this time. Make sure your swimmer brings all of his/her equipment to practice.
  • Swimmers must be able to put on their own caps as teammates and coaches will not be able to help. Girls whose suits have ties need to be able to re-tie them themselves if they become loose during practice.
  • Swimmers should put their bags, towels, etc., 6-feet apart along the fence at their assigned end of the pool, and take just their training equipment and water bottle to the pool edge.
  • Avoid bathroom breaks unless really necessary.

PICK-UP:

  • Swimmers will need to “wrap and go” in their towels at the end of practice as changing rooms will be closed at this time.
  • All items must be taken home at the end of each class. No items can be left at the facility.
  • Swimmers must be picked up within 5 minutes of their scheduled practice end time.
