Known "NO PRACTICE DAYS":

Friday, April 2

Monday, May 31

 

The start times listed are when we want the swimmers entering the building, there’s no need to be any earlier. With COVID-19 still an issue, they will still use hand sanitizer, grab a laundry basket for their gear and maintain 6' distance when at all possible. Masks will be worn at all times, except when moving to the water, in-water and during water time, and moving back to laundry basket following water time.

ENTRY & EXIT Locations

- for each group & time, see below.

(Currently NOT being used for any groups) REAR Door - go past Main Entrance to pool, around the corner of the building, there will be a canopy set up at the door and a coach waiting. There ARE NOT "social distancing" marks here, so parents/swimmers please keep your distance when waiting for entry screening. (This entry will be re-evaluated as the weather gets colder. Arrangements may be made to move all entry to the MAIN.)
