Practices will begin June 1:

  • Only 1 child per lane will be allowed during initial practices. A Signup Genius will be posted at registration dates or online.

  • More information on these practices will be posted once we have a better idea of the registered children’s ages and abilities. 


Meets: The first meet would be during the week of July 6th and would continue every Monday and Thursday afterwards through the end of July. Meets may be in different formats to limit the amount of kids/people on deck. Parent spectators would need to be reduced to only one per family.  There are a couple of ideas for running meets. One would be to set up a meet similar to year round swimming.  We would break up the age groups into different sessions.  Or, we could run virtual meets. Our team would have a meet at our pool and the other team would do the same at their pool. We would then compile the results electronically. Nothing has been decided, but wanted to fill you in on some initial plans.

City Meet update: There will not be a large City Meet as we have done in the past due to the amount of people and access to the base.  The thought is to possibly do a separate divisional champs meet in the white, red, and blue divisions… but all that is up in the air for now.  
 

Inexperienced Swimmers: JUST FOR THE 2020 season, we will only be able to open registration to swimmers that are able to swim a full 25 unassisted. Please understand that this is not by our choice.  Due to the COVID 19 social distancing requirements, coaches will not be able to have close contact with swimmers as required by swim lesson type practices in the shallow end.  I know this is a disappointment and something we as a team have always enjoyed!  Our goal is the return to “normal” next year and begin to open regular registrations again. Of course, this could all change if social distancing requirements change.

Parent Duties

Our swim meets are run exclusively by parent volunteers. 

 

AS THE PARENT OF A MANTA RAY, YOU WILL BE REQUIRED TO FULFILL DUTIES THAT ARE VITAL TO THE OPERATION OF SWIMMING EVENTS.

 

Some of these duties include:

  • Concession sales

  • Time keeping

  • Score keeping

  • Stroke and turn judge

  • Setup and take down

 

The opportunity to choose your volunteer jobs and the dates you perform them will be offered through Sign-Up Genius after registration.
