HVNA Swim Team Training Schedule and Covid Protocols

The First Day of Swim Team
Need-to-Know Items for Swim Practice

The following are some reminders for you and your swimmer to help make the first day(s) a success!

Safety First!

• No diving in the shallow end
• Walk on the deck
• No Horseplay: Keep your hands to yourself
• Stay out of the Baby Pool: No one should be in the Baby Pool during practice hours.
• No Glass in the pool area
• Parents – Help supervise children that are not under the coaches supervision

Procedures / Expectations

• Arrive on time with needed equipment
• Be Ready to listen and learn. The Pool and surrounding area is our classroom – We’re here to LEARN and have Fun!
• Come to practice with a goal in mind. Something that you want to improve on. Focus on this goal often.
• When the coaches are giving instruction:
• Face the coach and stop talking
• Keep head above water and a hand on the wall
• If waiting for your practice, socialize/play with teammates away from the pool, behind the ramadas. No ball over the volleyball net
• 8-U: After each length, climb out, line up and wait for instructions
• Parents – socialize with other parents away from the pool deck. The coaches and swimmers need their attention on becoming faster.

Equipment needs:

• Competitive suit – no rec suits, boardshorts etc.
• 9-18: We always like to train in two competitive suits.
• Competitive Goggles. Avoid store brand goggles. You get what you pay for.
• Cap for all swimmers with hair below hairline
• Towel and sunscreen
• 9-18 need short-blade fin by the start of the 2nd week

Try Outs

We use age-grouping as a “starting point” for placing each swimmer in an appropriate training group. So, the first two days of practice (Try-Outs) will help us evaluate your swimmer’s current abilities to determine appropriate placement. The vast majority of swimmers will remain in their age group. If a move is needed, the parent will be contacted ASAP to inform them of the decision.

We are looking forward to another Great Season at!

COVID restrictions are loosening, but we will still observe the following protocols for the first two weeks. We’ll then reassess as needed.

6 swimmers per lane maximum occupancy

Facility / Operational

1. Signage posting of public health advisories encouraging social distancing and prohibiting symptomatic individuals from entering.

2. Entrance / Exit procedures: 

If your swimmer or anyone in your home is or has been ill STAY HOME!
Only swimmers and session volunteer will be allowed to enter. (A Parent or Adult Guardian could enter IF masked and or separated by 6 ft in their own lawn chair)
Supervised entrance through south gate. 
Foot traffic will flow along the west side of the pool to the volleyball court and await direction from coaches.
At the conclusion of the training session, swimmers will exit to the east side of the pool to be escorted through the gate for pickup.

3. Limited occupancy

Establish appropriate social distancing markings under east ramada. 
Social distancing will be enforced while in the facility
Sanitization of surface areas will be addressed by session volunteer. 
Masks are optional

4. Limited pool occupancy

This year Pima County Health, the CDC and USA Swimming have not recommended a specific number of swimmers per lane. Each facility is implementing the protocols that they feel are reasonable.
We’ve decided that a maximum number of 6 swimmers per lane with 3 at each end with appropriate spacing should be sufficient to safely run swim practice.

5. No Drinking Fountain.

Bring your own water bottles. No sharing water bottles or training equipment. Bathrooms are open as needed. As much as possible, wear your swimsuit to and from practice.

Hopefully, we’ve turned the corner with COVID, but we think it’s best if we continue to be vigilant. The expectations below are what we expect for at least the first two weeks of practice.

Coach Expectations

• Perform self-wellness check prior to practice
• Do not attend practice if ill or family member are ill.
• Use safe sanitation procedures on entrance/exit to facility
• Vaccinated Coaches may conduct their duties without a mask. Unvaccinated Coaches will wear masks when social distancing of 6 feet or more cannot be maintained.
• Appropriate sanitation between sessions

Swimmer Expectations

• Adhere to entrance and exit procedures.
• Maintain social distancing on deck and in pool.
• Wash hands prior to practice
• Do not share equipment
• Do not share food, drinks or towels.
• Cover sneeze or cough with elbow.
• Arrive as close to practice time, exit facility as soon as possible
• Consider 14 day self-quarantine after out of town travel
• Do not attend practice if swimmer or family member are ill.

Family Expectations

• Review these expectations with your swimmer(s)
• Have your swimmer ready for training at designated time
• Pick up your swimmer(s) at designated time
• Ensure hand washing before and after practice 
• Do not send your child to practice if he/she are ill or a family member is ill.
• Be adoptive to unforeseen changes in response to CDC and PCHD guideline changes.

• ***The volunteer expectation of this season will be proctoring entrance and exit of your child’s training session, performing temperature check of that session’s swimmers, address any sanitization of surface areas and most importantly, ensure social distancing of swimmers while on deck.  This will be coordinated through SignupGenius and PPE will be provided.


In-Person meets will take place in the 2nd half of June. The COVID protocols will be dictated by the host team / facility. We will be developing protocols for two Home Meets over the next several days
