Entries are due April 01 by noon.

Please make sure to review site addendum and warm-up times. Swimmers should arrive 15min before warm-up times.
It’s a long way to travel and show up late or unprepared!

In order to keep our swimmers safe we will …
1. Continue to check athlete temperatures before practice begins.
2. Do our best to keep consistent lane assignments
3. Do our best to keep swimmers wearing a mask on deck and distanced 6ft apart at all times.
4. Continue to only allow parents on deck with children 8under or for specific medical or behavioral reason.
5. Limit locker room use as much as possible (come dressed with suits).
This is a team effort, please continue to stress the importance of COVID guidelines to your children.

Looking forward to another successful swim session at Great Mills.
