COVID-19 Information & Policies

Due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, our team, in conjunction with Florida Swimming, has developed guidelines as to how to respond to the possible occurrence of an athlete in our organization testing positive for the virus.  On this page are these guidelines which we will follow if an athlete does test positive for COVID-19 to ensure that our environment is safe and limits the potential spread of coronavirus.  On this page are also the additional facility rules that we have in place at this time.

During this time, we all must be taking additional steps to ensure not just our own personal safety, but the safety of those around us and their families. Even as some restrictions are being lifted, we must be taking care to ensure that we can continue practicing safely and healthily.  Much of this responsibility falls to our swimmers. The following are team policies that will be in place until further notice:

  • Athletes are required to continue following all social distancing and safety guidelines currently in place during practice.
  • Athletes are encouraged to socially distance outside of practice, and to refrain from interacting in groups or going to crowded areas/events.
  • Athletes MUST inform the club staff if:
    • They believe that they have been exposed to COVID-19, or Have exhibited any symptoms of illness related to COVID-19.
  • If an individual has confirmed or suspected exposure to COVID-19, they MUST follow the directions of the “Contact Tracing Protocol” and “Return To Practice Protocol” completely.  Athletes should also inform everyone that they have been in close contact with of a possible exposure in a respectful and thoughtful manner.
  • These policies are in place to keep us and our families SAFE, and to ensure that we can continue practicing.  Violations will be enforced accordingly.

Thank you for doing your part to help us keep you and our community safe during COVID-19.  We all have to do our part to make our state’s reopening safe and healthy, and our policies exist to limit the possibility of COVID-19 spreading through our team if exposure occurs.
