Junior Huskies Swim Clinic

Fall 2020 October 17 - November 14 (REVISED)

Due to the fluidity of the situation, we will be issuing refunds closer to the session start date.

Junior Huskies Swim Clinic provides additional attention and competitive guidance to proficient swimmers ages 6-17 who are looking to improve their swimming skills and fitness levels. Participants must be able to swim unassisted for at least 25 yards, tread water for at least 1 minute and have swimming knowledge and ability equivalent to Level 5 of the American Red Cross Learn-to-Swim program or higher.

The COVID-19 Visitor Symptom Tracking Form is required to be completed by all participants and guardians before every class session. Participants are asked to arrive at the pool already changed into their bathing suits. Locker rooms will only be available after class sessions. Masks are required on the pool deck but not permitted in the water while swimming. Masks are also required in the locker room except for showering. Space will be provided for personal items on the pool deck. Class size is limited and based on social distancing.

Location

SDC Pool

The Student Development Complex lap pool and dive tank are licensed by the State of Michigan and inspected by the Western U.P. District Health Department. Accordingly, the water is analyzed and the temperature is taken daily. The temperature fluctuates between 81-87 degrees and this will depend on the pool usage, outside temperature and water flow rate. The water is replenished automatically due to water lost through splash, backwashing of sand filters and evaporation. This new cool water intake will not be 81 degrees until it is well mixed into the existing pool water.

Special Requirements

All students must have appropriate swimwear (no cutoffs or street clothes) and a towel. Students should bring goggles. Due to fluctuating water temperatures day to day, we advise parents to dress children in warm swim layers. Rash guard swim shirts for the upper body and fitted spandex or knit leggings for the lower body are good examples of clothing that keep the body warm but do not create excessive weight or retain water. A parent or legal guardian is required to sign a waiver of liability and concussion awareness form for all youth classes.
