COVID-19 Safety Plan
The Aquatic Center has bleacher seating for more than 1,000. Our 100 athlete meet size per session will be under state requirements. Face coverings are also required by the facility. Only athletes, coaches, volunteers, staff and officials will be allowed in the facility – no spectators. The locker rooms and facility are cleaned overnight. The bleachers, chairs and door handles are also cleaned after every session is finished for a meet. All attendees will enter from the front door. Temperature checks will be taken and the Covid-19 screening form collected as they arrive.

Current COVID Screening Form

Coaches, officials, facility staff and volunteers must have face coverings on at all times while in the facility. Athletes must have face coverings on at all times in the stands, behind the blocks, in the locker rooms, etc. while not competing or warming up/down in the pool. Any individual that refuses to have a face covering will be asked to leave the facility.

The competition pool has 20 lanes for warm-up. There are an extra 8 x 25 yard lanes in the therapy pool that will be utilized at certain times during the meet. Teams will be assigned specific warm-up times and lanes before the start of the meet. The facility recommends a maximum of 4 people in a lane at one time. A minimum of 10 lanes will be available for warm-down during the meet.

The main concession area will be closed. Participants should bring their own snacks and drinks.

There are 4 main bleacher sections that seat 250 each. Teams will be assigned a section. No more than 50 athletes will be assigned in each section. We also have 3 row bleachers on the opposite side of the pool. There are multiple rooms available off the deck for officials, coaches and timers meetings. There is plenty of space around the facility for those that would like to sit outside weather permitting.

Movement around the pool will be in one direction (counter clockwise). Only one additional heat for individual events will be allowed to congregate behind the blocks. Relays will be seeded every other lane. The entire relay heat will leave the starting area before the next heat can line-up.

No team or high point awards will be given. No ribbons/time stickers will be given. The meet is limited to the South Carolina LMSC in order to discourage travel from other areas. Official split requests will only be accepted for the 1000 of the 1650 free to cut down on the amount of paper being handled at the meet and to cut down on the required interactions with participants. These requests must be made on the USMS split request form and must be submitted prior to the conclusion of the meet.

In the event that an attendee tests positive for COVID-19 after the meet, our seating charts, warm-up lane assignments and relays will be kept in the office for 90 days. Depending on the specific details of the situation that arises, the coach of record for the club that may have individuals impacted will be notified. Unattached individuals will be contacted individually if they were assigned a warm-up lane or seating area with a Covid-19 case that arises within 2 weeks following the meet.
