Hello Sandpiper Families!

We are so excited to announce that Crystal Springs is allowing us access to the pool for the evenings from 5:30-7:30, M-F for swim team practices! The pool will be closing daily at 5:00 PM so we will have the entire lap pool to ourselves at that time. There will be two 1-hour practices, the first one from 5:30-6:30 PM and the second from 6:30-7:30 PM. The practice groups will be determined based on enrollment, age groups and ability of the swimmers. There will be no more than 5 swimmers per lane, spacing will be clearly marked by cones and they will also be using the deck space as needed. There will be no chairs at Crystal Springs and parents will not be allowed in the facility during practices allowing greater use of the deck space. There will be new entry and exit procedures. All swimmers will be screened upon entry for every practice. Masks will be worn by the swimmers and coaches upon entry into the facility and at times where social distancing is not possible. Competitions will be in-house only, with the possibility of competing with other teams as they swim in their own pools.

Having said all of this, we understand that there are potential risks to any of our "new normal" activities. We understand that some may choose not to be on the team this year, but for those that choose to do so, we are going to make it as fun as possible!

We are looking forward to seeing you soon!!
