2021 COVID Safety Plan
Hidden Forest Piranhas
2021 COVID 19 Safety Plan
Parents/Guardians and Swimmers
The Hidden Forest Piranha swim team will make every attempt to follow the safety and health guidance recommended by the state of Texas and CDC. Swimmers will be asked to practice social distancing to the greatest extent possible, taking into consideration that we will have young children together in a pool. We have developed the following rules to help us towards this effort:
- Parent/Guardian is responsible for monitoring and screening their swimmer each day before arriving to practice.
- Parent/Guardian is responsible for reporting suspected symptoms of illness to team coordinators as soon as possible.
- Swimmers will be highly encouraged to bring and wear a mask before and after practice.
- Swimmers will be encouraged to not gather before or after practice. Each group will be let in 5 minutes before their scheduled time and will have 5 minutes to gather their things and leave once their practice session ends.
- The coaches will limit physical contact with the swimmers, but we make no guarantees that your swimmer will not have physical contact with a coach or another swimmer.
There will be 4 virtual swim meets this season. The only people at our pool will be those on the Hidden Forest Piranhas swim team and family members. Swimmers will sit with their families while they wait for their events.
We ask that you practice common sense and respect for others by not sending your swimmer to practice or to a meet if they have any symptoms of illness.
We reserve the right to ask any swimmer to leave if they appear to have any symptoms of illness.
We also reserve the right to ask swimmers to leave if they repeatedly violate the rules described above. We recognize that this season will look and feel different because of the health and safety concerns, so we are making every attempt to allow the swimmers to have a positive experience while keeping everyone as safe as possible.
