Most of us are settling into new fall routines for back to school – and back to the pool – so we want to provide a facility update for all TAC patrons and TITANS families.
TAC has maintained its strict cleaning protocols throughout the facility, and we have monitored all reported cases of COVID exposures since our TAC COVID Protocol took effect. These efforts will continue unchanged. Please review the protocol with your swimmers this week, and make sure you notify Elisa at [email protected] if you have something to report.
As we start our new season, we want to remind everyone to keep your swimmers home if they are experiencing any symptoms of illness, regardless of whether the symptoms are related to COVID. This is the best way for us to keep all of our TAC swimmers and staff healthy and to keep our training on track.
The biggest change this year is that we can welcome spectators back to our events. TAC staff and volunteer meet marshals will continue to provide friendly reminders at all events. Please be sure to bring your own mask.
Virtual is Still a Reality
We’ve gotten great feedback about our live-streaming service and made significant investments in upgrading technology and improving the experience. We believe many of our TITANS families will continue to enjoy the opportunity to watch meets from the comfort of home. Those with annual subscription plans have recently been automatically renewed. If you are unsure of your subscription status, please click here.
We’ve seen significant improvements in our swimmer drop-off and pick-up traffic patterns, and we thank you for your help keeping everyone safe. Please continue to
watch for signs directing you down the hill to the drop-off line along the side of our facility. Turn into the lot in front of the building to get in line for pick-up after practice.
PLEASE NOTE that there is no drop-off or pick-up allowed along the curbs adjacent to either parking lot. As daylight starts to shorten and early morning swim practices begin, we must continue to be mindful of safety.
Last but Not Least: A New Outdoor Pool!
We anticipate the start of construction on a beautiful outdoor 50-meter pool later this fall, and we’ll provide more details as we are able. As with recent additions, this work will temporarily increase construction traffic around the facility, but our drop-off and pick-up patterns are not expected to change.
As always, we appreciate the support of all our patrons. Your commitment to TAC has given our swimmers greater consistency than many other places could provide, and we are not yet back to “normal.” At a time when so much was lost to the pandemic, we are very excited to start a new season of safe, healthy, and fast swimming at TAC.
