Schedule Updates

Dear WMST Swimmers,

Thank you all for your patience as we have navigated this shut down due to COVID-19.  Your WMST Board of Directors has been working hard at formulating a plan for our return to the water with a great deal of help from our friends, and fellow WMST Coaches Ross & Laura Davis, at Swim Streamline at Northampton (SSAN).  This plan will only be successful if each and every member adheres to the rules we have set forth.

               3 documents are linked here: WMST Account Credits & Billing for COVID-19, WMST Practice Time Slots & Sign-Up Genius, and WMST Re-Opening Plan & Guidelines.  I ask that all members please thoroughly read through and familiarize yourself with these documents as we begin our phased entry to the water.

               The CISD Natatorium has emailed stating that there are no plans for it to reopen until at least the middle of June.  As such, we will begin our practices at Northampton as facility availability allows.  This will be very different from how we have operated previously, and careful attention will need to be paid to the social distancing rules that are outline in the documents.  If you find that you are unable or unwilling to adhere to the attached documents, then please do not sign up for a practice time slot. 

Practice Time Slots

  • We will begin hosting practice on Monday, May 18, 2020 at the Northampton Pool located at 6012 Root Rd, Spring, TX 77389.
  • We will start with 5:30am practice Monday through Friday, and 6:15pm practice Monday through Thursday for the first week.
    • Note that the practice schedule/times/slots that are offered will likely be changing from week to week as a function of pool availability
  • We will begin workouts by limiting the number of swimmers to one person per lane, this means at Northampton, we will have a maximum of 6 swimmers per practice.
  • You will be signing up for one of six lanes per practice, and your coach will direct you to which lane would be most appropriate so that you are surrounded by swimmers of similar speed and ability.
  • We are aware that most swimmers have been out of the water for at least seven weeks, as such we will be starting back to practice slowly.
    • Drills, technique, regaining a feel for the water
