It is with a heavy heart that we announce the Grand Lakes Swim Team Board has voted to cancel the 2020 swim season. First and foremost, we value the safety of our swimmers and families and with all the uncertainty surrounding Covid-19 we don't want to take any risk hosting practices or potentially large swim meets in the coming weeks.
We hope you all understand how much we love this team, and how much we wanted this season to go ahead. Our promise is to make 2021 extra special!
All families, including new swimmers that registered for the 2020 season are already part of the Grand Lakes Swim Team and as such, will be considered returning families next year and will be eligible to register early, before we open registration to new swimmers.
The Board has also voted to change our refund policy for the 2020 season and give 100% refunds to all of our families. We will be working with WePay (online payment company) to facilitate these transactions. We will send a confirmation email to advise on when you should have received your refund.
We hope everyone is keeping well and we will miss our time on the pool deck with you all. We look forward to a better 2021 season.
Grand Lakes Swim Team Board
As we began planning the season several months ago, none of us imagined the circumstance that we are currently facing. The COVID-19 outbreak has prompted unprecedented changes in the world and in the world of sports.There are new recommendations every day. The fluidity of the situation surely adds to the confusion and concern.
The Grand Lakes Gators Board is following closely the situation and recommendations from the CDC and the White House. We are keenly aware, as most of us are actively involved at the team level with our own teams, of the challenges that the COVID-19 outbreak will present for the teams and our league.
We would like to assure you that as we are learning to navigate these uncertain times, and we're working on the season moving forward in this new climate and making contingency plans for several different scenarios. While we are currently in a watch and wait position, we are evaluating all options. We have time and we will be ready with our action plan.
We know that this time will end. And when it does, we will all need activities for our children and our families to join in. We have time. More importantly, we need to have hope. Our families need to have hope. We still have lots of options and although the season may not end up looking normal, we have a strong chance to still do what we all love…swim!
