Tsunami Swimming is back this September!

For the 2022-2023 season, we'll be at St. Michael's pool in Spotsylvania 6 days a week and King George YMCA pool 4 days a week.

Swim & Stay Fit and Lessons will be held at St. Michael's. Registration will open August 1st.

Make sure you're signed up for our email list to be the first to hear when team registration opens!

While we are always sad to lose team members, we're proud to announce the graduation of two of our outstanding seniors.

With that said, congratulations to Mattie Baine and Izzie Crampton!

Summer is almost here, and Tsunami Swimming is pleased to announce a special summer session of Learn to Swim! Join us outdoors this summer in South Stafford.

Thanks to growing demand, Tsunami Swimming is adding an additional hour to the Session 5 Sunday Swim & Stay Fit class, set to begin on April 3, 2022.

  1. If your swimmer is placed in quarantine related to contact with a close friend/family member, their school or another activity, they are NOT allowed to attend practice/meet/program with TSU until that quarantine has ended.  Please notify Coach Pete so a return to practice date can be set based on personal/individual circumstances as there are many potential scenarios.
  2. Please notify Coach Pete of any positive test results so we can determine any risk of exposure to the rest of our team or staff.  They are tracking attendance so we can best determine individual risk on any particular date.
  3. Please notify Coach Pete if you have any questions regarding exposure, travel, testing or a return to practice question/concern.     
  4. If your swimmer has a pending COVID/flu/strep/RSV test they are NOT to attend practice/meet/program.  As symptoms overlap among illnesses, we want to ensure we are all doing our best to keep our team healthy.  Please contact Coach Pete for the process to return.  
  5. Masking policy - 
    1. King George YMCA-masking is required for ALL unvaccinated/partially vaccinated individuals who are indoors and not actively exercising.  This includes swimmers who are entering/exiting practice AND parents in seated/waiting indoors.  
    2. Saint Michaels-all individuals are to be masked unless actively swimming as this is a school facility and falls under the state masking guidelines for schools.

As an additional reminder: should your swimmer(s) become ill, please do not hesitate to have your swimmer(s) medically evaluated for any of the following symptoms: fever, chills, body aches, cough, fatigue, shortness of breath, sore throat, headache, abdominal pain/nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, loss of taste/smell.  These are ALL symptoms of COVID-19 and can occur in vaccinated individuals (however, typically, to a much lesser extent).  We have teammates/coaches/families with immunocompromised/medically at-risk members of their families, please be respectful of their added risk and DO NOT attend practice/meet/program with any of the above symptoms.  

Return to practice guidelines:

Based on current guidelines that are subject to change, our return to practice/coaching post illness policy is as follows: swimmers/staff/family members must be fever free without taking any fever reducing medications for at least 24 hours and also free of diarrhea/vomiting for at least 24 hours, even with a negative test or resolution of symptoms.  *(This is the policy regardless of illness diagnosis)​.  If your swimmer tests positive for COVID they must be out at least ten days from symptom onset/positive test whichever is longer and any symptoms they have must be improving (ie - cough) in addition to above guidelines.​ If flu positive, then seven days following same guidelines/or when finished Tamiflu course.  Coach Pete must be notified if a swimmer has a pending/positive test for COVID.
If you have questions about COVID-19 or your swimmer's personal health situation, please call his/her doctor. This email serves as notification of our current practices/guidelines.  We will send out updates if needed/as guidelines change.  Our club is here to support all of our members and we appreciate your understanding during this challenging time. Please contact Coach Pete with any questions/concerns.
