The Columbia Swim League Board met last week to discuss the 2020 season. Several issues, including DHEC guidelines that recommend 4 swimmers per lane, basic social distancing protocol that would be impossible on a crowded pool deck, and the fact that specific procedures could not be created because almost all of the CSL host pools are different configurations, led to a vote to cancel the 2020 CSL season. The consensus during the meeting was that each club would field a swim team based on their specific options and procedures.
We all know you Can’t Sink a Shark, and Murraywood would still like to have a swim team! Our summer season will begin on Monday, June 1 and our season will now extend through July. Online registration will begin on Monday, May 18th. This year registration will be all online in order to practice social distancing and cut down on paperwork swapping. Please sign up as soon as possible to ensure a spot for your swimmer(s). PLEASE NOTE THAT DUE TO SOCIAL DISTANCING GUIDELINES, OUR COACHES CANNOT BE IN THE WATER WITH YOUNG SWIMMERS. Although we have traditionally placed emphasis on the development of our youngest swimmers, this year, we are limiting enrollment to swimmers 7 years of age or older who can ALREADY swim a length of the pool.
We are so excited that you have chosen us as your summer swim family! Once you have signed up with us, you will be placed on an email list. Additional info will be sent out to that list frequently regarding practices schedules, meet info, parent meetings, equipment purchases, etc.
If you have any further questions, please forward them to firstname.lastname@example.org
See you at the pool!
