**Please note that swimmers must be comfortable in deep water and able to swim one lap of the pool without assistance in order to participate. No artistic swimming experience is required.


HEALTH AND SAFETY

• Campers cannot attend with any cold or flu like symptoms. Killarney will be following the latest covid protocols at the time of our camp. Due to the ever-changing circumstances surrounding covid we will send an update closer to the camp start date on any specific information.


DROP OFF INFORMATION

• All athletes in our 13-15, 16-20 or Junior camps should meet on deck each morning ready to swim at the camp start time. Swimmers will be jumping in the water at the camp start time so please arrive on deck around 7:50AM.

• Parents of U10’s and 11-12’s must exit their vehicles and check their athletes in with our coaches. Check in will be at 8:40AM each morning for these age groups near the daycare slide on the west side of the building. There is generally street and short-term parking available in that area for easy drop off – you should be looking along 45th Street. U10’s will be heading downstairs with a coach at 8:50AM each morning. 11-12’s will do this on the first morning and after the first day are able to check in and then head down to the pool deck on their own. If the weather is rainy, we will wait just inside the door area nearest to the slide.


• Athletes who are participating in childcare will meet at this area too. Please bring a quiet activity to do while you wait. If the weather is nice we will be staying outside. If the weather is rainy we will meet by the security desk

• Athletes that arrive late for check in will need their parents to walk them down to the pool deck to sign in. PICK


UP INFORMATION

• U10 and 11-12 athletes will be walked to the drop off location and must be picked up by a parent or guardian. They can also be released with an older sibling. A coach will wait until all athletes are picked up. Please note that any athletes not picked up promptly will be charged a childcare fee.

• Athletes in the 13-15 and older categories will be dismissed from their last dryland session. You can choose a meet up location for your athlete or meet them by the security desk each day. No supervision will be provided after the last dryland session each day. WHAT TO BRING/WEAR • Come ready to swim. Wear your bathing suit under your dryland clothes so you are ready to get in the pool right away each morning. Full piece swimsuits are recommended.

• Towel and clothes to keep warm during pool breaks, a large hoodie is nice

• Goggles

• Swim Cap

• Noseclip (if you are new and don’t have one then we can lend you one)

• U10 athletes can wear shorty wetsuits if preferred

• All swim items are available for purchase at Team Aquatic Supplies - https://team-aquatic.com/. They have an store location East of Chinook Centre and are experts in working with aquatic sports

• Yoga Mat to use for our outside dryland sessions and yoga inside sessions

• Full Water bottle

• Snacks and a Lunch

• Clothing to wear for dryland sessions. Leggings or bike shorts and a t-shirt or tank. Clean running shoes. Clothing should be tight fitting so that coaches can see body alignment for sessions like flexibility and dance

• Hat and sunscreen for outdoor sessions, we will also be eating lunch outside if the weather is nice

• Hair will need to be tied back for dryland sessions

WHAT TO EXPECT

• Pool time in the morning with breaks throughout. We will do some stroke improvement, learn artistic swimming skills and have some fun too!

• One hour supervised lunch break (Athletes will not have time to purchase any food). Athletes will have 1 hour to get changed and eat lunch each day. We plan to eat outside as often as possible.

• Various dryland sessions in the afternoon

• Mini watershow on Friday at 11AM where athletes perform for each other

• Competitive athletes will build skills throughout the week they will need heading into the September season

• Special fun events throughout the week


BUSSING

• We are tentatively planning to offer bussing this year which will depart from Market Mall and head to Seton each morning and then return to Market Mall at the end of each day. Bussing is not available for National Stream swimmers.

• We need enough swimmers to be interested in the bus in order for the bus to run. We will let you know by mid June if we are able to offer bussing and bussing fees will apply at that time

• Please note that camp fees are not refundable in the case that we do not have enough swimmers to ride the bus

• We do plan to have a coach ride the bus with the athletes in both directions to provide supervision. The coach will remain with the bus until all swimmers are picked up.

• Bus will depart Market Mall at 8:00AM and return around 4:40PM. Parents should be waiting for the bus to arrive or an additional childcare fee may apply


OTHER THINGS TO NOTE

• We want the participants to enjoy their day together. Phones, if athletes choose to bring them, should stay in their bags until the end of the day

• Athletes are expected to be respectful to all coaches, dryland staff, Y staff and the facility itself. We are very lucky to have our camp at Seton this year and we need to treat it well. Athletes must be able to follow coach direction and stay with the group at all times.
