A very specific process is in place to ensure we follow social distancing rules. Please refer to the map which will illustrate this format.
Swims will include two 1 hour 30 minute sessions of 50 swimmers and up to 4 staff. We will require participants to pre-register online which will allow a non-contact check in process. The check in line will be staged with more than 6 feet of separation. As participants check in they will line up in the order of arrival. The check in spot in line will correspond to their staging area on the grass (check in spot #1 goes to staging spot #1, etc.). Staging spots on the grass will be 16 feet apart to allow for gear to spread out. Participants will remain in the check in line until their staging cone becomes available. Once cleared, participants will advance to their staging cone and get ready for their swim. Social distancing will be the participant’s responsibility while moving about on land and while walking in and out of the water. While on the swim course participants will navigate around a 225 meter loop (75 meters each leg) and can distance themselves as they feel comfortable. Once the time limit is reached all swimmers must exit promptly, walk to their staging cone, gather their belongings and promptly exit the grass to their car to allow the next set of participants to advance.
Schedule: Check In, Staging, Swim
Practice Swim Session 1: Check In: 8:00am-8:15am, Staging: 8:15am- 8:30am, Swim: 8:30am-10:00am
Practice Swim Session 2: Check In: 9:45am-10:00am, Staging: 10:00am-10:15am, Swim: 10:15am-11:45m
For each practice session time there will be a pre-swim briefing. The briefing will begin once all 50 swimmers are in staging. Entry into the water will be permitted once the briefing concludes and the water is cleared from the previous session.
