Winter Maintenance Swim Practices start Monday, October 5th, 2020

Posted by Graham Gale on Oct 04 2020 at 01:38PM PDT

Winter Maintenance swimming practices start tomorrow, Monday October 5th. Yeah! All parents/caregivers must read our “Return to Swimming” document before attending. The document is attached to this announcement, or you can see the paper version posted at the Aquatic Centre.

On Monday, Jamie and Graham will be near the Library side front entrance, to welcome swimmers, collect volunteer cheques ($75, payable to the Revelstoke Aquaducks) and to have parents sign the BCSSA Waiver if this has not yet been done.

Please have your swimmer in their suit and ready to swim when they arrive at the Aquatic Centre and ensure that they have brought their membership card from a previous session. Cards will be prepared for new swimmers. Contact Graham (aquaduckstreasurer@gmail.com) if you cannot find your card from a previous session.

Anna Pfeiffer is our Head Coach, and Kayln, Maddy &, Tye will be assisting her. Our coaches will be showing the swimmers the routine for arrival: Rub hands with sanitizer, scan your card through the plexiglass screen at the counter, enter the pool through the double doors, remove your shoes, walk barefoot to the tables by the windows, place your items in an empty basket (provided by Aquatic Centre), gather by your coach. Easy. Like at school, social distancing and proper cough/sneezing etiquette are required. Sorry, as per our “Return to Swimming document”, parents are not allowed on deck to watch.

At the end of practice, swimmers will gather their gear from their basket, and go to the changerooms where they can rinse off, dry off, and change. The Aquatic Centre is encouraging our athletes to shower properly at home, and to limit their time in the changerooms. There are maximum numbers allowed in the changerooms so the coaches may stagger leaving times by a few minutes among the swimmers.

Its not like our usual routine, but we are grateful to be back swimming after a long absence and the new routines will not last forever. Thanks for your patience, and we welcome feedback, which can be emailed to aquaduckspresident@gmail.com. As we are inventing a new system from scratch, there will likely be some changes coming up, please review emails from the club regularly

Kind regards,

Aquaducks Board of Directors
