We hope you and those you hold close are staying safe and healthy. Fortunately, we’ve been able to continue with our swim program while following health rules, ordinances, and guidelines. We thank you for your collaboration and everyone who has made sacrifices in their daily lives to keep their loved ones and those around them healthy. These times have been emotionally challenging for all of us, including all our swimmers and coaches.
I wanted to give you an update and overview of the planning we are doing for the 2021 season.
Our entire coaching team at WWS is working hard behind the scenes to ensure a safe start to the swim season. We continue, day-to-day, to evaluate information from the CDC, state and county health officials, and national experts to help us be as thoughtful as possible in developing appropriate policies and protocols. We are also staying updated on news about the vaccines. We are doing everything we can to return, as much as possible, to a normal swim season, and have requested the necessary permits for our swims.
For our dedicated and healthy swimmers who have been training with us, we are planning to add swims that will continue to advance your swimming and prepare you for future swims, especially when we are given the green light to operate normally in the Bay of San Francisco and other parts of the world.
Even with all our efforts, we must recognize a note of caution in this fast changing environment and that there are still uncertainties that may negatively impact our swim schedule, dates, and events.
In the meantime, we will continue following the already established health precautions for all our swim sessions.
1. Appropriate physical distancing at all times, both in and out of the water. This requires awareness and patience from all our swimmers.
2. Online pre-registration for all swims. Each swim session has a limited number of swimmers. Drop-ins are allowed, but must pay the full session fee by credit card.
3. Masks must be worn at all times outside of the water and immediately after your swim. This will be enforced for the safety and respect of all participants in our open water swim program, and as a necessity for WWS to operate as a small business during these times.
4. Hand disinfectant is available at each swim session. We also have a few extra masks, just in case.
Our mission is to provide you with the opportunity and a safe environment to enjoy swimming with a fun and welcoming community, stay active outdoors in the fresh air, and support you as you train for your future swims and competitions.
One thing we do know for certain is that we remain, above all, committed to the health and safety of all our swimmers, coaches, swim program participants, and visitors from around the world.
As we learn more about our future and most immediate season plans, we will keep you updated with the latest information.
Best regards and wishes,
Coach Pedro and the WWS team
