Back to Swim

The SMAC Board and Coaching Staff are focused on the safety of our athletes, our families, and our greater community as our main concern and priority. We have taken that position from the outset of this horrible pandemic and helped lead the greater USA Swimming member clubs in prioritizing the public health.

We have a well-considered plan based on the Washington Department of Health Sports and fitness guidance as well as input from several local school district plans and local physicians.

Understanding procedures are put in place for your safety by local governments and the CDC is critical for a successful restart.  All participating members (Swimmers, Coaches & Parents) are expected to adhere to these guidelines.
