Social Distancing & Sanitation Plan

  • All DASH Practice protocols will be followed - distancing, laundry baskets, facemasks, post-practice sanitation (www.teamdash.org).

  • Swimmers, coaches, officials & volunteers will remove their street shoes when entering the pool area, so have a 2nd “clean” pair to wear on deck OR spray with disinfectant upon entry to deck.

  • Laundry baskets will be provided for the swimmers to keep all of their clothes, towels, swim bag, etc… in while on the pool deck.

  • Swimmers will be required to wear masks when not approaching the pool to warm-up or race or in the actual pool.

  • Swimmers will be required to remain on the pool deck during the ENTIRE session. They may not move to and from the pool area to the spectator area. Once they leave the pool area, they WILL NOT be allowed back into the pool area.

  • Swimmers will have access to ONLY the pool deck, including the stairwells to and from the pool deck. NO other areas of the school will be accessible.

  • Spectators are not allowed on the pool deck.

  • Concessions WILL NOT be available.

  • The spectator area will be available, but masks are required at all times when inside the Aquatic Center and social distancing will be encouraged and expected. Due to a recent increase in local cases of COVID, SPECTATORS WILL NOT be allowed into the Aquatic Center.

  • This meet will be live-streamed on the DASH website. A password needed for log-in will be sent to each competing team by 6:00 Friday evening, November 20, 2020.

  • One timer per lane, operating a stopwatch and back-up button. Following each session the button, stopwatches, chairs, clipboards, etc... will be sanitized. 

  • Prior to any 50 yd. or longer race, swimmers will wait by the blue tape on the wall behind the block, arriving ONLY once the prior heat has started, and stepping forward when called by the Referee’s four short whistles.

  • Each swimmer will do a 25 yd. EZ following their race and exit the water at the bulkhead.

  • For 8 & Under 25 yd. races, swimmers will wait at their basket / blue tape spot on the wall until called by a coach to move onto the bulkhead and to their assigned lane. Following the race (finish fast!!),  they will swim back (EZ!) to the bulkhead, exit the water, move off the bulkhead and return to their “spot”.

  • Officials will wear facemasks, except for the starter when giving start commands, at all times.

  • The announcer will maintain a socially distant location OR wear a facemask.

  • At the official table, the timing system operator and readout board operator will maintain a 6’ separation and wear a facemask at all times, unless from the same household.
