TNAQ Holiday 2020 – Visiting Swimmers

Welcome to Knoxville! We’re happy to have you swim with us, but we need everyone to help do their part to keep our team and community safe. That includes you! Please familiarize yourself with our team policies at the link at the bottom of this page. Most importantly, please remember:

  • Stay 6 feet apart at ALL TIMES.
  • Wear a MASK. Everyone needs to wear their mask at all points you are on campus, except while you’re in the water.
  • Take your TEMPERATURE daily.
  • Show up ON TIME (no more than 15 minutes early or 5 minutes late).
  • Wear your suit to practice. There will be NO LOCKER ROOM use for changing.
  • If you have been told to QUARENTINE by anyone, you may not come to practice.
  • Fill out the HEALTH QUESTIONAIRE each day (before practice, on the day of the practice you are about to attend). Questions below:
    • Have you been told to quarantine/self isolate by a health care provider or the Health Department?
    • Are you currently awaiting COVID-19 test results?
    • Excluding situations where students or employees of a healthcare profession have been wearing appropriate professional PPE in their patient care settings, in the last 14 days, have you had close contact (i.e. less than 6 feet of physical distance) for 10 minutes or more with someone who has or is suspected of having COVID-19?

Due to our association with the University of Tennessee, all visiting athletes between 8th and 12th grades or in college are required to pay a $5/day fee to get in the water with Tennessee Aquatics. All visiting athletes must be USA Swimming, USA Diving, or AAU Diving registered members. All payments must be cash or check and given to the coach on deck. All checks can be made out to "Tennessee Aquatics". Visiting teams will be required to pay a training fee, not an individual fee.

All visiting athletes will aslo be required to abide by our current Practice Protocols and fill out the University Self Survey.
