Return to Practice

Hello Families,

In preparation for our return to practice on Monday, July 13, please review the below information very carefully. As excited as we are to get back in the water, it is very important you are fully aware of the policies and procedures moving forward.  

We are all doing our best to stay healthy and keep our spaces clean. For those entering the Ransom Everglades campuses, we need your help affirming that you are healthy. To do this at scale, RE is using a mobile app called LiveSave/WorkSafe that connects directly and securely with our campus medical services. You can download the app and create a profile in just a few minutes by clicking HERE from your phone or mobile device or by downloading the LiveSafe app from the App Store or Google Play Store. When getting started, select Ransom Everglades School. A flyer of the LiveSafe/WorkSafe app is attached. 

To attend practice each day, an athlete must take and pass the LiveSafe/WorkSafe health screening and record a temperature no higher than 99.9 °F before leaving home. If you are symptom free, and receive the green check mark, please save the time/date stamped confirmation and be ready to present it to a coach when entering campus. This confirmation will also be emailed to the address you recorded in the screening.

Please read the following guidelines carefully. Our protocols will be strictly enforced. No exceptions.

Pick up and drop off

When you pull into the campus please take a right-hand turn and park between the auditorium and the edge of campus. Parents will not be allowed to exit the vehicle for any reason. Please turn on your flashers until a coach has come to your vehicle and taken the temperature of your athlete and reviewed your health screening confirmation. Their temperature must register 99.9 °F or lower. Parents may not wait for their athletes on campus. They must depart campus after drop off.  

There are fifteen minutes allotted for drop off (3:40-3:55) and pick up (6:05-6:20). If you arrive before the assigned time, you should wait in your car until a coach approaches. If you arrive late to drop off, there will be a secondary drop off time (4:20-4:30).  Students may only walk to and from the pool in a socially distanced line, wearing their masks, with their coach at the designated time. There will be no exceptions, so please plan to arrive early.

To be clear, you may not go back to the pool to pick up your child, nor can the child walk through campus to meet you. If you know that you will have an issue picking up your child, please make arrangements for your child to be picked up by someone else or please do not bring them to practice that day. 

Athletes walking or biking to/from campus must communicate with their coach beforehand. They will need to wait at the front of campus, wearing a mask, until their temperature is taken and they present their health screening confirmation before being allowed on campus.  

On Deck

  • There will be no shower or locker room usage.  Please have your child ready to enter the pool.  
  • Bring TWO WATER BOTTLES ALREADY FULL. They will have limited access to the water fountain.  
  • There will be one bathroom open for boys and another for girls. They can only enter the bathroom one at a time. Bathroom use should be for emergencies only. The bathrooms will be sanitized each night.  
  • Bags will be put on an individual chair for each lane that will be sanitized after each workout.  
  • If there is lightning, the team will go underneath the grandstands and into the parking garage.  
  • There is only one entry to the pool and one exit to the pool.  
  • All athletes will travel in a group of 10 including the coach. No one is allowed through campus without a coach.  
  • The coach will bring the athletes back to the front of campus after practice to be picked up.  
  • There will only be one athlete per lane.

Participation is optional. Parents and athletes should determine what is the best interest of their family’s health and safety before participating.

Below is the link to sign up for July practices. We need an accurate count on how many kids to expect. Depending on the number of kids, we may split into 2 sessions, each 1 hour long. We will send an email out on Sunday evening with the confirmed practice time and the associated drop off and pick up times. Also, you must to have a current USAWP membership and sign the COVID-19 Return To Play Release and Waiver (when you log in, it should pop up right away, or can be found listed on the left column). Those who are not current members or haven’t signed the release and waiver will not be allowed to participate.
