The day we have been waiting for is upon us, it is time to get back in the water. The following information is critical for each family to read and understand as we resume training. Our new procedures for health screening, safety precautions, practice protocols, and training schedules are all in place in order to allow us to be back in the water, but also ensure we keep our TEAM safe.
All RBAC Swim Team members (swimmers, parents, coaches) are expected to adhere to the guidelines included herein to stay safe and healthy. These procedures were developed in consultation with CDC, California, LA County, and Pasadena Health Guidelines, as well as USA Swimming recommendations on reopening procedures. We have taken additional steps in communicating with top programs around the country in order to gather best practices from facilities that have already opened.
Any questions should be addressed with your group coach first, and then directed to Head Coach Jeff Julian.
Generally, RBAC will endeavor to follow CDC guidelines for staying safe and healthy inside and outside of the pool.
Personal Swimmer Conduct: To minimize the risk of transmission and help promote safety, the following personal swimmer conduct is expected. Failure to adhere to these principles will be asked to leave training for the day. If violations continue, further action will be taken up to and including suspension.
There will be an area at the end of the access road (at the south end of the parking lot), that we are calling the waiting area, but we ask each family to only utilize this area in emergencies. We will not have space to take care of swimmers consistently in this area.
This area will be utilized in the following circumstances:
All swimmers that fall into one of the above categories will be required to sit in a chair, mask on; until their group is starting or their rides are there to pick them up.
