COVID-19 Information

As we prepare for an unprecedented summer, we are committed to creating a safe and healthy environment for all staff, members, and our entire Swim Club at Park community. We are working with federal, state, and local agencies, as well as the Park School, to form the best practices regarding COVID-19. As the summer gets closer and we gain a clearer understanding of what is (or isn’t) possible at the pool, we continue to learn about our ever changing environment, and state and local regulations are updated, we will adjust our plan accordingly.

We can not do this alone. We will need the cooperation of every Swim Club at Park family to make this summer the best summer yet!
