2020 Swim Season

Christy Manning

Due to the recent events with COVID-19 some are wondering what the effect will be for our 2020 swim season. The short answer is we do not know what is going to happen but we are continuing to prepare for the season until we have a definitive answer.  The Tri-state swim organization is continuing to monitor CDC and state guidelines, the actions of USA swimming and the advice of each team’s local community.  Tri-state will meet again on Saturday, May 16th to discuss the 2020 swim season outlook.

The Carthage Aquatic Team’s board has developed a plan to conduct registration in two phases.  Phase 1 will consist of signing up swimmers and collecting contact information.  No fees will be charged at this time.  Phase 2 will take place when we know the swim season will proceed and the timeframe it will encompass.  At that time, an email will go out to all registered families with instructions regarding swim fees.  We believe this process will allow our board to prepare for the season while not complicating a potential shortened or cancelled season with full or partial refunds.
