After the Governor's order Wednesday night, we, along with our facilities, have been working hard on a plan for us to return to the pool. Guess what... it's almost time to dive back in! Well, only if you're in the deep end. We are fired up to be getting back to practice! The Ambler Pool at the Asheville School will be opening to us beginning Tuesday, May 26th with practices beginning at 8:00 am, and the Waynesville Rec Center will open on Monday June 1st at 11 am. IT'S. TIME. TO. SWIM!.


All athletes must read all documents, re-register, fill out, and sign all waivers. There are quite a few things that will be different as we un-fog our goggles and turn our sights back the pool. You MUST read, follow, and abide by all instructions of SMAC's Return to Practice Protocol. 

  • Step One Read SMAC's Return to Practice Protocol
  • Step Two: Fill out the Registration form with your athlete(s) here. If you have more than one athlete, you must fill out the form for each athlete. Parents and their athletes should fill this form out together. (A Waynesville video will be uploaded in the coming days).
  • Step Three: We will activate your account during normal business hours. From there, you can log in, view your invoice, and get ready to rock!  
  • Step Four: Athlete Zoom Meeting. Monday 5/25 @ 11am. At this meeting, we will go over all rules and new protocols in regards to returning to practice. Invites will be sent as athletes sign up. 
  • We will send detailed athlete workout schedules as soon as we know our sign-up numbers.  So - sign up quickly! The deadline to sign up is May 28th. 
    • Due to space and time restrictions, there may be a need to limit the total number of sign-ups. Registration will be on a first-come, first-serve basis. So get signed up quickly. 


If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to reach out or call either SMAC coach.
