To all clubs, 5.22.2020:

Greetings, SCS Coaches and Club Contacts!
 
As opportunities begin to present themselves during this COVID-19 Emergency Crisis to be able to re-open swimming facilities and approach the process of living with the Coronavirus until there is a vaccine, Southern California Swimming’s Board of Directors has, in a collaborative effort, approved a set of guidelines to help our Teams/Clubs through the process. Attached is a document that serves to help all Teams/Clubs.
 
To begin the process, first and foremost, Southern California Swimming is unconditionally aligned with USA Swimming as stated by them accordingly:
 
All steps taken by Teams/Clubs within this progressive strategy require comprehensive compliance with local, state, and federal public health agencies, policies, procedures and guidelines.

Southern California Swimming 3-Step Return to Practice Guidelines document is attached below, and under the FORMS tab: https://www.socalswim.org/Forms/Files/SCS%203%20Step%20RTP%20Guidelines.pdf
 
 
The following guidelines of the SCS Board of Directors suggest that each Team/Club should:
 
Plan & Prepare – Comply & Confirm – Proactively Practice
 
For many reasons lead by the health, safety and welfare of all of our Stakeholders a “Comprehensive Compliance” should measure all planning and actions taken as Teams/Clubs are offered the opportunity to “Return To Practice”.
 
We are going to get through this together.
