Keeping You Updated

Even though our Gator Swim Team is taking a break, it doesn’t mean the Gator Board hasn’t been busy.  There is still a lot happening and we want to keep you updated so that you know what the options are for your family.

State of Colorado:
Governor Polis has extended the Safer at Home order through July 31, 2020. Although there is an amendment to the order that allows outdoor pools to open, it still states that a social distance of 6 feet must be maintained and no more than 1 swimmer per lane at any given time. This doesn’t lend itself to swim team functionality.

Colorado Summer Swim Club Association:
– The State Meet has been cancelled
– The League Meet has been cancelled

Foothills Swim Association:
FSA is the swim league that our Gator team falls under. Here’s what’s going on with the other teams:
– Green Mountain:  no team, pool closed
– Stingrays: no team, pool closed
– Mount Vernon: no team, unknown on pool
– Golden Marlins:  no team, unknown on pool
– Wheatridge:  no decisions have been made
– Columbine Knolls: no decisions have been made
– Applewood Knolls: no team, possibly small swim camps only, pool open
– Applewood Athletic: no team, possibly small swim camps, pool not open yet
– 5 Parks: trying to have a team, pool open

Gator Camps??
If at some point the State orders allow more than one person per lane …..and the Green Mountain Rec Center opens it’s indoor pool …..and they allow us to rent lanes, we will try to have a couple swim camps or just start clinic early. There are A LOT of “ifs” in this statement. Just know that we are working hard behind the scenes and trying to figure out a way to get your kids in the pool and keep swimming in their hearts (and very strong bodies!)

We Miss our Swim Family!
We may attempt a team picnic or some kind of gathering this summer if more restrictions are lifted. As always, we will do our best to keep you informed.
