COVID-19 Swim Team Club Guidelines

The goal of the Summer Swim Club is to provide an opportunity for swimmers to remain connected with the sport and to gain valuable coaching time in a small group setting.   Our current plans include the following to align with the COVID-19 Guidelines and the Chesapeake Golf Course Pool Rules. As new or updated guidelines are released, we will adjust our policies as needed. 

  • Practices will be 50 minutes each. 
  • Swimmers may not be on deck before or after their scheduled practice.
  • Swimmers will only be permitted to participate in the specific AM/PM time period they are registered for unless prior approval is obtained from Coach Eric.
  • Cleaning of deck items will be performed during the 10 minutes between each practice.  
  • Only swimmers will be permitted on deck.  Parents must wait outside the gated area. 
  • Swimmers are required to swim unattended for the full length of the pool.  New swimmers under the age of 10 will be required to pass an eligibility test with one of our coaches.
  • Swimmers will be required to arrive on deck in their bathing suits ready to swim.  Locker rooms will not be available for changing before or after practices.  
  • Swimmers are encouraged to bring a minimal amount of personal gear to include:  towel, swim equipment and personal water bottle.
  • There will be limited restroom availability as the bathroom needs to be wiped down and disinfected after each use.   
  • Swimmers will be required to bring their own kick board and/or other personal equipment.
  • We plan to compete in meets with other teams in our league however meets will be conducted much differently than in the past.  There will be no relay events.  There will not be an all-star meet but there could be potential for a championship meet at the end of the season.  There will be only one timer per lane.  Due to capacity restrictions, on deck spectators will be limited and meets will likely be split into two sessions by age groups.   All specatators and volunteers will need to wear a mask and distance themsleves 10 feet apart from anyone not living int he same household.  Each team hosting will determine logistics for their pool.  Some away meets could potentially take place on a weekday/evening.
