Lopatcong Swim Team - Action Required

    Good afternoon everyone,

    PARTICIPANT INTEREST SURVEY - Previously registered swimmers MUST fill this out too. 

    The Lopatcong Swim Team will be offering practices this season. However, we need to get a realistic gauge on how many swimmers are willing to participate under the conditions listed below. If you previously registered, please know that for this season it was only to get on our email list and does not guarantee a spot for a training session. 

    • Location: Belvidere Municipal Pool
    • Dates: July 1st - August 7th
    • Times: 8:00 pm - 10:00 pm, Monday - Friday. Practice sessions will be an hour long, and your swimmer will be assigned either 8:00-9:00 pm or 9:00-10:00 pm, 10/U swimmers will be assigned the 8:00 pm slot first. 
    • Cost: $200 per swimmer (this covers pool rental, swimmer insurance, and coaching salaries) 
    • Adhere to all NJ Executive Orders and Covid-19 safety guidelines while in practice and on the premises.

    Please fill out this PARTICIPANT INTEREST SURVEY, so we can make a realistic assessment of interested swimmers, program viability, and estimated costs. 

    Please do so ASAP, by this Friday, 6/26. We'd like to have swim evals on July 1st, and need to have all admin items finalized before that date. 

    Since there is a limited # of spots open this season, and since social distancing is necessary, we can only accept swimmers who are proficient at all strokes for their age group. Normally we can accommodate up to 150 swimmers from all ability levels (novice to highly proficient college bound swimmers), but this year we will need to limit that to 48 swimmers, with ability level as one of the criteria we use for selection. The program is designed for swimmers looking to get some training days in, not as our normal entry level gateway to competitive swimming. As a coach that's a very tough thing for me to say, but it's a realistic starting point for reopening pools and competitive swimming at this point. Hopefully, we'll be able to build upon that as we go into the Fall season too.

    AGAIN, please fill out this survey ASAP:  PARTICIPANT INTEREST SURVEY

    Hope to see you soon, :)
