VPSC COVID-19 Procedures

Please read below for a reminder about check-in protocols:

1) Swimmers MUST arrive at least 10-15 minutes before the start of practice. 

2) Upon arrival, swimmers will be wearing a mask and will check-in with the Coach at the drop off area and be asked the pre-screening questions.

IMPORTANT: Parents should not leave until a swimmer has completed their check-in with the coach. Swimmers should arrive to practice "swim ready" as no changerooms will be made available.

3) Swimmers will be asked to use the hand sanitizer provided by the facility or coach prior to the start of the session.

4) Coaches will walk the swimmers into the facility 5 minutes before practice begins. 

5) If a swimmer develops symptoms for COVID-19 after a training session, you can contact the VPSC COVID-19 Officer at covid19officer@vancouverpacificswimclub.com


VPSC Return to Swimming Policies and Procedures
June 29th, 2020

We are happy to distribute our VPSC COVID-19 Return To Swimming Policies. With these policies approved by the board, we will be able to conduct in-person training sessions for our members, such as our VPSC Summer Camps. However, it is very important to note that at this point in time, none of our usual pool facilities have finalized their guidelines and regulations for users (such as VPSC) to use their facility.  As a user group, we will be beholden to the guidelines that our facilities put in place once they have been published.  We will update our own policies to ensure that we are in line with our facilities guidelines once they are available to us.
