We are in a hiring freeze still
Sandra - West Virginia University
My pool of potential staff got cut in half as Emory is online and only allowing first years on campus
At this time we don’t need to hire for the Fall semester, we have cut our hours for the pool for budget reasons, so we don’t need to hire new staff- Towson University
Bob Gough William & Mary, in Virginia
I'm probably on the same page with Morgan Munoz. Budget cuts and money going to athletics instead of rec sports (boo) with hours being cut and less people into the pool during the fall. Less guards needed on shift. We also have to reduce hours I believe as well
00:38:33Taylor Roby - UTSA
thank you for that energy
We don't have a target "open date" yet but hoping late September/Oct. We have a healthy number of returning staff but will begin zoom interviews in August and in person try-outs (physically distant set-up) to hire 12-15 more guards as subs.
@Richelle - those are expensive lifeguards for the university....but we've also thought of that too
if your looking for programs to get people who don't know how ot swim as adults our high school here does a swimming as a life sport class. We work with the high school and take about 20 kids per semester who don't know how to swim at all and they are swimming and learning water aerobics by the end. Most are aferican american from below provery lines that have never had swim lessons and some that have never been in a pool

We have offered free swim lessons for students. But I've still struggled to get students to want to participate
I am working to set up a program for our grad students meet service learning hours by reaching out to our local community and teach about water safety. Hopefully this will then grow into being able to expand swim lessons for those students.
We offer an event once a semester called Ladies Night. In undergrad we did special friends day
00:46:42Bob Gough W&M
We target market our adult learn to swim program to our international student organizations and our facility management staff.
Last year, we held a Women in Water event with our Muslim Student Association. So we closed the pool just for the program and blocked out all windows so women could come swim. We also had female guards.
We have a robust 3rd Grade swim program for our local school district (8 schools). We have support with busing from the school district, scholarship grants to pay UCSB student swim Instructors and provide swimsuit/trunks, cap goggles and carry bag for the 3rd graders. Most participants are low income and/or Hispanic/LatinX and don't have access to pools or lessons.
Lap swimming and hopefully RC Boat racing
00:48:31Taylor Roby - UTSA
I’m super interested in this topic. I’m at a loss for ideas 😓
lap swimming, private swim lessons (instructor with face shield), deep water aerobics
We are building out Aquatics Fitness offerings with classes that are blend of land then water workouts.
We are sticking to drop-in swimming mostly and we have guidelines for the small club swim team. We won't be offering swim lessons but we are going to work with marketing to offer swim tips each week as well as weekly workouts. I will also be working with our outdoor coordinator to offer some more creative collaborative programs such as paddleboard the pool that can be done safely with social distance measures.

We will be offering lap swim + family swim hours (Saturday & Sunday only). We will offer Children's swim lessons for Y1 & under- with parents required in the water. Private lessons & semi-private swim lessons are permitted- but only semi-private lessons for members of the same household. Swim club will be allowed to practice after our pool closes for open rec, but before the full facility closes.
We are using IM leagues for reserving lane space
We are using Microsoft bookings
00:52:41Brad Wilson- LSU
We are using EMS as a means to register for pool lanes.
Is anyone using EMS - FUSION is very cumbersome on the back end.
calendly...but I have to verify memberships daily
Has anyone taught a lg class yet? And how did it go? Any tips or lessons learned?
We are doing a 20 Mile Club for Summer 2020 so I've created 22 workouts over 9 weeks that if you complete, you will swim 20 miles.
We are also collaborating with Fitness and doing a weekly Aquatic Fitness videos of dryland exercises and how it relates to swimmig
CPR/AED certification classes but no LG classes
00:56:55Taylor Roby - UTSA
we will only be offering an in house class ONLY if we need it.
LG class and inservice
00:57:08Taylor Roby - UTSA
we’re looking more towards spring to host
Someone mentioned Clear Gear - can you use it on multiple service and/or fabric?
We are looking to use Lysol disinfectant spray for our fanny packs to sanitize.
We are not cleaning our deck (outdoor concrete). That was our state guidance.
01:18:22Brad Wilson- LSU
we are not cleaning our outdoor deck either
Ditto on Michael & Frances.
our guard room will only be 1 person allowed
We are not allowing anyone to use their locker rentals including the TU CR staff
We are going to set up a large tent outside our first aid/guard office while the weather is nice.
We designated entrance and exit doors for almost all rooms within the facility including our staff rooms.
guard room is one at a time
Our guard room will only be 1 person allowed and the expectation is that they only go in there for a few minutes to get an AC break as they should be cleaning and disinfecting
Haven't figured out how to manage physical distancing for staff when weather gets cold, windy and/or rainy. Our "office" space is pretty small and won't be able to accommodate more than 2 staff not on tower.
For those with toilets only - do you have an outdoor shower available?
We have a shower on deck. Only one person at a time. (we are indoor)
