Aquatics Update


Dear Parents,

We are very excited to see everyone tomorrow! A few things to keep in mind:

We have done our best to group swimmers according to parent wishes, but it was not possible to meet everyone’s first choice. Between social distancing requirements and keeping the groups as similar as possible in age and ability-wise, these are the breakdowns we have come up with. Please reach out with any questions regarding your children’s group placement!

Pool / Practice Guidelines

  • Locker rooms will be closed so children need to come prepared for the pool – they will need a towel, shammies (for divers), goggles, water bottle, and to have bathing suits on prior to arriving at the club. Restrooms will be open and cleaned routinely.

  • Sharing of personal equipment, such as goggles, swim caps, and water bottles is not allowed.

  • To maintain one-way foot traffic, children and parents should enter through the gate between the parking lot and the pool (across from the paddle courts) and then exit through the gate on the opposite of the pool and go up and across the walkway past the snack bar area to the parking lot.

Swimmers should arrive no more than 5 minutes before their practice time starts and be picked up no more than 5 minutes after their practice time ends. For reference, swimming and water polo practice times are as follows:

Swim Group 1: 8:15 – 9:15

Swim Group 2: 9:30 – 10:15

Swim Group 3: 10:30 – 11:15

Water Polo Yellow / Blue / Green Group: 11:30 – 12:00

Water Polo Red Group: 12:15 – 1:00

Go Bandits!!!!
