COVID-19 Update - March 1, 2021
DCAC has secured a pool for Sunday practices beginning February 21, 2021. Check your weekly email for the registration link. We will be capped at 30 swimmers for each practice. It is only open for DCAC members.
All other DCAC practices remain closed due to COVID-19.
DPR opened indoor pools on a modified schedule with social distancing guidelines and enhanced safety measures in place on Tuesday October 13. Registration begins on October 1 and participants must reserve a space online at DPR Programs.
Wilson, Takoma, Marie Reed, Turkey Thicket, Rumsey and Barry Farm will open for reservations of 45 minutes with one reservation per day and a four-reservation maximum within a seven-day period. Reservations are currently for individual swimmers only; group access will not be permitted.
The pools will open Monday - Friday from 6:00 a.m. - 8:00 p.m. (closed 12:00 p.m.- 4:00 p.m.), Saturday 10:00 a.m. - 4:00 p.m. and will be closed on Sunday. Individual swimming is not sponsored by DCAC and is not sanctioned by USMS.
The Board is working with DPR to arrange team practices as well and will follow up with a schedule, and likely a reservation system, as soon as we can arrange pool time. We are also seeking to work with pools outside the city for group swim times and will keep you posted.
Feel free to splash around our website and check out what we're all about.
