2021 Swim Team Update
It is with a heavy heart that the 2020 season has been cancelled for the Streaks. This is not a decision that was taken lightly. The decision was made after guidelines, rules, expectations & means to run a summer league team were reviewed by our swim team leadership and the leadership of our sister pools in the Sandy Springs community.
Our swim program's main purpose has been & will always be to provide your children with a summer they will never forget! A summer filled with the best memories of friendship, sportsmanship, team spirit and growth. If we were to meet all the new expectations 100% of the time, our program would be unrecognizable.
As we mourn the loss of this this season (yes, the coaches are devastated), we cannot wait to be back in the pool with you in 2021!!
Additional Swim Options for this Summer
Other Teams beyond Sandy Springs: If you are determined to have your child swim on a team this summer, some teams in the metro Atlanta area may still try to hold their season under the strict guidelines. As of now, no teams have officially confirmed. When/if a list of those teams comes out, they will be available to you on the Atlanta Swimming Association website.
Swim Clinics: We are exploring the possibility of holding some swim clinics for very small groups in July (assuming it is safe for us to gather for instruction). Details on this opportunity will not be released until the last week of June! We plan to wait as long as possible before sending out sign ups to ensure the program is safe & feasible for all parties involved.
Private Lessons: This TBD! As pools open up, we encourage you to stay safe & vigilant as one on one instruction is offered at other pools. Our number one goal is to ensure the safety of your swimmers. And unfortunately, touching them & being in the water with them is not safe at this time. Therefore, parents with young swimmers who need hands on instruction will most likely not have the opportunity for private lessons at our pool this season. However, kids looking for specific technique improvement may be able to receive one one one instruction come July in a social distancing setting.
Refunds for Swim Team Fees
We have contacted ASA to start the process of having their fees refunded, and we are working with Swimtopia to figure out the easiest way to issue refunds for the team dues.
Refunds for Swim Suits
We have contacted our swim suit provider, and they will process refunds for all suits. Please contact Kirsten Martter – firstname.lastname@example.org - if you have any questions.
