All team buses will drop athletes off and will directed to a designated parking lot. Athletes once inside the school will not be permitted to leave until the conclusion of the meet. All teams will be directed to a designated area inside the gymnasium. All coaches are reminded to present a completed PIAA Postseason Covid Form each day. All coaches and athletes must wear a face covering from time of arrival until departure with the only exception being while on the pool deck.

Locker rooms will be available. In an effort to limit the number of individuals in the locker area all athletes should arrive dressed in swimming uniform. Locker rooms should be utilized for toilet and hand washing purposes only. Following competition athletes will be allowed restricted locker room access in order to change out of wet uniforms and clothing. All athletes should change out of uniform immediately following their final event of the day in order to minimize the number of swimmers in the locker room facility.

There will be no concessions sold. Each team is permitted to bring into the facility no more than 2 full sized coolers. Coolers are not permitted on the pool deck. We ask all garbage is collected and put in the proper receptacles.

In an effort to limit the number of individuals on the pool deck teams will be scheduled a specific time and a specific lane to warm up. Teams will not be permitted in the pool or on the deck except in their designated time slot.

Once the meet begins no coaches will have access to the pool deck. Coaches will be directed to an observation level deck that runs the entire length of the pool 3 feet above the pool deck. We are asking each school to limit the number of coaches to 4. We are also requesting that at least one coach remain with the team in the gymnasium seating area at all times.

Once the meet begins no swimmers will be allowed on the deck other than those competing in the current event. There will be a staging area for the swimmers in the next upcoming event. They will remain in the staging area until directed by an official to enter onto the pool deck. At the completion of an event all athletes must vacate the pool deck and return to the designated team area in the gymnasium.

All media are welcomed to cover the meet. No media other than credentialed press photographers/videographers will be allowed on the deck. Reporters will be accommodated in a designated media area. Each school will be responsible for decisions on permitting interviews of coaches and athletes with respect to that school’s specific policies. Those permitting interviews must adhere to PIAA district two social distancing considerations.

No spectators will be permitted to attend the meet. The competition will be live streamed. The link will be forwarded to you and will be posted on the PIAA District 2 webpage.

There will be no medal presentations during the meet. There will be no awards ceremony at the conclusion of the meet. All medals and awards will be given to each respective school for distribution at a time and manner of their choosing. Due to the absence of medal presentations there will be two 5 minute breaks scheduled within each session.
