COVID-19 Update - October 16, 2020

Individual Swimming

DPR will open 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.

Group Swimming

A group of swimmers have been training 4 days a week in a river in Annapolis in a coached setting since the beginning of May. The swims are not sponsored by DCAC and are not sanctioned by USMS. Tuesdays and Thursdays at 6 pm and Saturdays and Sundays at 10 am. Please contact treasurer@swimdcac.org for more information.

Feel free to splash around our website and check out what we're all about.
