Swim Team Programming Set to Return July 13

Eric Demrow

We have some GREAT news. We will be able to begin swim team programming starting next week, July 13. Obviously, things will look much different and it will not be back to business as usual. I am so thankful that we are able to run some sort of programming and cannot wait to see kids back in the water.

Attached to this email and posted on the website is our return to practice plan. Please read it thoroughly and go over it with your athlete. There is NO wiggle room with any of the policies in place. We will hold ourselves to a high standard because it is what is best for our team, our Y and our community.

SPDY Return to Practice Plan

Keep in mind this is our Phase 1 plan for getting swim team back in the water. I am hopeful we can build on this as we get into late August and September. I understand there will be disappointment that this plan does not include all swimmers and would not allow for our typical summer participation. When we feel the time is right, we will add to what is being offered. For the immediate future we will be running in two week sessions (much like what swim lessons does in the summer). Swimmers will get one hour of pool time offered Monday-Friday. The schedule for the July 13-July 24 session looks like this:

Senior/Senior Elite (12 spots): 7:00-8:00 AM

Junior/Junior Elite (12 spots): 8:15-9:15 AM

Senior/Senior Elite (12 spots): 4:00-5:00 PM

Junior/Junior Elite (12 spots): 5:15-6:15 PM

Cost for each two week session is $45 per swimmer.

*With not allowing for parent spectators, we do not feel comfortable offering Developmental practices at this time.

Sign-up for each session will happen on the team website. Do NOT call the front desk to register. Registration will happen much like volunteer job sign-up for a swim meet. There are 12 available spots for each practice time. Please only commit to one spot for your swimmer. We cannot go over 12 swimmers at a time, so once a time block is full, that’s it. The program fees will be added on your TeamUnify account which gets drafted on the first of the month. If you have any questions on the registration process, please contact Coach Eric.

Registration for the July 13-July 24 session will open on the team website at 9:00 AM on Thursday, July 9.

Again, please do not call the front desk to register. Questions need to come to Coach Eric.
