Special Practice Notes: Beginner/Beginner Plus - Please be sure to review each weekly schedule for any potential changes in location or start times. Although these do not happen frequently, it is important to note when and where you need to be!

 

**Photography/Videotaping at the YMCA: Please note that photographing and videotaping of the athletes while at the YMCA is STRICTLY PROHIBITED. We are a USA Swimming Club that rents the facilities at each of our locations. We often share the pool with the public or other programs at the YMCA during Beginner and Beginner Practices, so please respect the rules of the facility!

 

**Locker Rooms: Parents are STRICTLY PROHIBITED from entering the locker rooms during ANY practice, at ANY of our locations. This is a direct violation of USA Swimming Safe Sport Rules. If your child needs assistance in the locker room, please have them use the single-person stalls at the YMCA. If your child needs assistance at the high school pools, you cannot enter the locker rooms.

PARENTS:

Parent Assignments & Information:

*For questions about this, please contact the SSC Board of Directors - [email protected]*

Parents who have work assignments for the SSC Fall Face Off Home Meet, this Sunday 10/16 should report to admissions upstairs at the Nassau County Aquatic Center. Please report there at the start of the General Warm Up of your session(s) for sign-in. Please plan to arrive early so that you can be on time for any relevant information and briefings.

 

Parents NOT Working this Meet:

All parents and spectators not given a work assignment for this meet are NOT ALLOWED DOWNSTAIRS for any reason short of an emergency. Parents are never permitted on the pool deck without a work assignment. Parents are NOT ALLOWED in the locker rooms ever for any reason. Please use the restrooms upstairs if needed. There are single-stall restrooms available on the first floor for meet workers. DO not enter the locker rooms during a swim meet or a practice at any location as it is a violation of USA Swimming Safe Sport Rules.

 

Meet Information for Swimmers & Parents:

How to Enter the facilities:

Please see the attached aerial view of the Nassau County Aquatic Center for information on how/where to access the facilities.

When to get to the facility:

Parents/Swimmers are responsible for arriving at the facility 15 minutes before the start of your session’s warm-up time (Listed below and included in the meet itinerary of every single meet). Swimmers must arrive early as there is only one opportunity for warm-up throughout the entire meet. We cannot guarantee that your swimmer will be unable to properly warm up if you are late. This means no starts, no stroke review/practice, and an increased risk of injury or poor performance! Warm-up is IMPORTANT and that is why we need your swimmers there on time!
