The team will be implementing procedures for athlete and coach health safety for the 2021-2022 season. These procedures will follow ISD 197 school district policies as well as recommendations from the Minnesota State High School League (see here).
We will discuss our team procedures with the athletes the first day of practice. In particular:
- Athletes meet outside of the Aquatic Center no more than 10 minutes before practice. Coaches will bring everyone into the building.
- Suits should be worn to practices, along with masks. Locker rooms will be unavailable again for changing or showering, but will be accessible for individual bathroom use.
- Masks will be required in the building until swimmers and divers are going into the pool to start practice. They do not need to wear them between dives or waiting at the ends of lanes.
- Swim lanes will be arranged to keep athletes at safe distances as much as possible.
