Probably won’t be opening until August. Just lap swim initially. Using one person every other lane or every two lanes.
Lafayette College (PA) Still shelter in place in PA. We have several versions of what re-opening will look like...locker/bathrooms are a big concern. Where, what, and when to clean them and who is cleaning those locations...
yes we are!
What protocols are folks putting into place to prepare their lakefront or beachfront locations to open?
What are people looking at in terms of swim lessons and the changes you are implementing?
I wonder what the demand will be for swim lessons. Will people what to bring their kids when we open.
For those that have discussed closing the locker rooms, where will you be expecting swimmers to change?
We continue to create multiple re-opening models based on everyday info...The governor makes a statement a few times a week. Once the announcements are made we adjust...
If you're a smaller school [less than 10,000 students] - and you open this summer - if you have no Student Staff (our student positions end May 9), what are your staffing plans? Small Prof Staff, as well (4 full-time, including Aquatics). Planning to have Students on campus in fall...thank goodness.
For those who are closing the locker rooms, are you planning to add more chemicals or the pools since you can’t rinse off prior to swims?
We're on a professional hiring freeze, however the university made it clear that does not apply to student employees
We'll have no students on campus when we return(presumably this summer?) but my fear is the local/HS guards(or their parents) won't feel safe working
We do not know when we can hire new students at ASU or offer lifeguard classes for that matter
Hoping we will be able to hold LG classes to get some more people to work before we open. Maybe run a LGI class/ WSI class.
our plan for training before we open is to run all student employees through a reorientation to the facility EAP and CPR/AED and First Aid skills. for lifeguards it will include a skills check
doing more water safety social media
re doing swim lessons plans
We've been doing some of those items while we've been shelter in place...
Will continue to have weekly online socials with lifeguard staff until we open
Anyone have remote plans for International Water Safety Day May 15th?
ive been teaching myself graphic design while creating water safety social media content
that is my thought too
thankfully I don't have to coordinate with athletics
yea for me at the University of Washington I do not have any swim teams. I miss it at times but not right now for sure!
USA swimming guidelines for team practices
we have been asked to design several models using specific reduced budgets...what does it look like with x% cut? What does it look like with y% cut?
was only able to pay high need students or students that could put in hours but we can no longer pay after this Friday. I have tried to hold weekly meet-ups (non mandatory) but didn't get good attendance
I have to prep for a staff meeting! thanks for the chat. stay safe!
