Summer All-Star Team/COVID-19

Tuesday, April 7, 2020

Dear Team SCS,

RE:  2020 SCS Western Zone All-Star Team/COVID-19
 
With the stay at home order and the COVID-19 pandemic we are uncertain at this time regarding the status of our 2020 SCS All-Star team trip to Mt Hood,Oregon.  Currently, we have more questions than we do answers, but we are in discussions and making plans.   
 
There are several challenges
1) The pandemic due to COVID-19 itself
2)  So far... no long course competitions/no long course qualifying period
3)  JAG Champs and a deadline are fast approaching
4) Will the meet be canceled by the host?
5) Teams are not currently training in pools
6) Will it be safe to travel in early August?
 
Information will be updated on the SCS website as soon as it is available.  https://www.socalswim.org/
 
We will continue to monitor the situation and wait for more direction from our governing body. We ask for your understanding and patience.  Your child's safety is our top priority.  We will work diligently to plan opportunities to help your child grow as an athlete.  There are several future events planned to serve the Age Group Program as part of Southern California Swimming. 
Thank you and stay safe.
