Hello OSM swimmers,
Thank you for your patience – there have been several changes over the past few weeks! Our session dates have been pushed back a week to line up with camp opening in the outdoor pool. It looks like the week of July 13th. Registration will be opening as soon as next week – here is a list of what to expect.
· Very limited number of spots (this can be reviewed only as the restrictions ease). We are following City and Provincial restriction guidelines
· Sign-ups for sessions only (no drop-in as years previous). Registration will be thru Eventbrite for specific time and day
· 4 swimmers per double lane – there will be 3 (double) lanes total in the pool. Swimmers will have to maintain 2m social distance while swimming and at the walls
· Signed waivers on deck
· Ensuring the health of everyone with specific entry and exit protocols that will be strictly enforced
· Change rooms are not available: swimmers are to arrive and depart in their suits or do a deck change
· Swimmers must bring their own equipment (kick boards, pull buoys, fins, hand paddles)
· No refunds will be issued in the event of session cancellation
· If you are experiencing any flu-like symptoms and/or have a fever, you must stay home from practice.
The sessions to choose from are (Note: sessions will begin at 5:45am to ensure final practice concludes before camp kids arrive at 9am). We welcome Emily A back as the primary coach on deck this summer!
Mon/Wed mornings (includes every other Friday same time slot)
Tue/Thur evenings (one hour, 2x per week)
Tue/Thu (includes every other Friday same time slot)
I will send out one more update giving you advance notice of impending registration. My recommendation is to sign up as soon as the registration link is sent out to secure a spot.
Please keep this message confidential; please direct people to the website or to me if they are interested in summer swimming!
If you would like to get in touch with me, please do NOT reply to this email, but rather send a separate one.
