Hi Waverunners! Can you believe it...Swim Team Practice begins one week from today!! Yay!!! :)

*Please see below for lots of important information about the upcoming swim season.

*As always, please email pcwaverunners@gmail.com with any questions or concerns that you have.

*Looking forward to seeing the swimmers on the pool deck next Monday! -Kari

  • Practice Times: Please see the attached PC Waverunners Info Sheet for all practice times. We had to alter a few of the times to balance the number of registered swimmers we have in each age group. Please review the schedule carefully!
  • Summer Evening Practices (June 1 - June 23): If your child needs to attend an evening practice there will be signups on the bulletin board located on the pool deck. Look for those signups to be posted the week of May 17th.
  • COVID Protocols & Procedures for Practices: As you can imagine, our practices will look differently this year than in past years. We are required by GCSL (Gwinnett County Swim League) to comply with all CDC and USA Swimming Guidelines in order to be covered by their insurance. Please see the attached protocols and procedures for practices this summer.
  • Saturday Stroke Clinics: Look for more information shared about these clinics in next week's email!
  • Remind App: For quick updates during the season (like lightning delays, practice/meet reminders, etc) this is how I will communicate with you. To join, click HERE or on your cell text 81010 and text this message: @pcwaveru
  • Inclement Weather: If practices are canceled or meets are delayed I will quickly communicate this info through the Remind App. Please make sure that you are registered!
  • Swimsuits: To purchase a swimsuit from All American Swim Supply click HERE and choose “Team Login”. The username is peachtree and the password is corners9. Not sure about sizing? See the attached sizing chart to help you choose the right suit for your child.

Covid 19 Rules for 2021

Due to Covid 19, our practices and meets will look a little different. 

  • Meets will be "virtual" meaning our team will swim at our pool, and the team we are swimming against will swim at their pool. This will allow for social distancing. 
  • At this time, we are planning on swimming the meets as a whole team, to allow for timing between events, however, this may change depending on our registration numbers, and meets may be split in half by age. 
  • Coaches will wear masks at meets and practices. 
  • Swimmers will be asked to wear masks as they enter and leave practice, and anytime they are out of the pool. 
  • Any parents who come to practices will be expected to social distance and wear a mask. We are lucky our pool fenced area is large, allowing for this. 
  • All meet volunteers will be asked to wear a mask. 
  • Meet spectators will be limited to one adult per swimmer. All spectators will be asked to wear a mask and social distance. 
  • The bullpen at meets will be spread out, to allow for space between swimmers, and swimmers will most likely have an assigned spot. 
  • This year we are requiring all new swimmers to be able to swim the length of the pool, and will not be able to offer a "Junior" program. Peachtree Corners Swim and Racquet will be offering swim lessons to club members for younger swimmers who aren't ready for swim team yet. 

Some of these rules could relax as the season nears, but enacting these rules will help us have a safe and complete season.

Update on Summer Swim 2021

Dear Waverunners,

Welcome back to summer swim league! Last time I emailed you it was to cancel the 2020 season so I’m excited to send this email to say that WE WILL HAVE SWIM TEAM THIS SUMMER!! (all caps because I’M SO EXCITED!) Woohoo!!! :)

This season will look differently than any of the previous swim seasons we have seen but that is to be expected in the middle of a pandemic. Gwinnett County Swim League (GCSL) is still working out many of the details but we are moving forward planning for this summer. We will be following all GCSL COVID safety regulations and are working with the Peachtree Corners Swim & Racquet Board to ensure that all precautions are in place at the pool this summer.

REGISTRATION: Registration for Swim Team should be open mid-March in SwimTopia. Look for an email from me the first week of March!

UNASSISTED SWIMMERS: To follow the CDC social distancing guidelines, GCSL has stated that for Summer 2021 swim team is only available to kids that can swim unassisted the length of the pool. Our Swim Team Board is currently working out a way that we can offer a private program (separate from GCSL) for our new and emerging swimmers. Stay tuned for details!

PRACTICES: Practices will begin Monday, May 10th.

MEETS: We will have 4 virtual meets in the month of June. We should get our meet schedule sometime in mid-April.

COUNTY MEET: July 10th - 11th. GCSL states that we will have a county meet but they are still not sure how and where to host such a large event. Details are TBD.

HEAD COACH: We are excited to welcome back Annabelle Bash as our Head Coach! Annabelle swam for the Waverunnners for 12 years and was the Assistant Head Coach for the past 3 years.

ASSISTANT COACHES & INTERNS: If you are 13 & up and are interested in being an assistant coach, junior coach or intern please apply HERE. The deadline for the application is Sunday, March 14th at 9pm. The number of coaches we hire will be based upon the number of registered swimmers our team has.

POOL MEMBERSHIP: Ready for summer already and want to join the PCSR pool? Click HERE for the new website & to join!

QUESTIONS? Reach out to the Swim Team Board!  Email us at pcwaverunners@gmail.com 

Looking forward to seeing you on the pool deck soon!

Kari Pieper, Swim Team Chair
