Georgetown Country Club
Family. Friends. Fun!
Our goal is to continue to make swimming and diving fun. Given most clubs are not hosting swim teams this year we will be splitting our team into two parts for split squad competitions & maintaining safety and social distancing. There may be opportunities for virtual swim meets. But as for now we will only have inner-squad competitions.
We will offer 3 sessions:
The sessions will be grouped by age. Our age group categories are 8 and under, 9 & 10, & 11 and up.
We will be running 8 lanes at the first two sessions and 6 lanes at the third session to accommodate another group that must use the pool. Due to the lower number of lanes in the third session, we will determine which age groups will swim each session once enrollment is mostly completed. Once numbers are in, we will place the age group with fewer swimmers in the third session. This will be determined by June 19th.
We also must have a certain level of enrollment to run the swim and dive programs this year (60 aquatic participants). At the same time, we are capping our programs this year. We are only allowing 18 divers and 26 swimmers per session for a total of 54 divers and 76 swimmers in an effort to maintain social distancing.
Practices will be Monday through Thursday for 5 weeks starting June 22nd and ending July 23rd. We will continue to have a focus stroke each week as we do during regular season: Back, Breast, Butterfly, Free Style, IM.
We will follow Washtenaw County's Health Department stipulation that there will be no passing within a lane. This will help with distancing the swimmers.

Due to some logistics related to swimming we will determine which age groups will dive each session once enrollment is mostly completed. Once numbers are in, we will place the age group with fewer swimmers in the third session. This will be determined by June 19th.
Practices will be Monday through Thursday for 5 weeks starting June 22 and ending July 23. We will continue to have a focus stroke each week as we do during regular season: Back, Breast, Butterfly, Free Style, IM.
Social Distancing will be enforced with markings on the pool deck.
For adult lap swimmers (18 & Up) the pool will open early and lifeguards will be on duty from 7:15 AM - 8:45 AM, Monday - Friday. To promote social distancing and to allow more people access to the pool, the session has been broken up into two 45 minute sessions. Swimmers will sign-up for a 45 minute session using Sign-Up Genius. The credentials to sign-up for a lane will be given once the invoice is paid. Lanes 1 through 5 are for swimmers that are comfortable splitting a lane with someone. Lanes 6 through 8 are for people that are uncomfortable sharing a lane due to COVID and will be for only one participant.
Cost is $25.00 for each two week session for members and $40 for non members. Priority registration given to members. Registration is open to non-members on July 3rd at midnight(which is really July 4th).

The GTCC Swim Across is Back!
Fight Childhood Cancer with The ChadTough Foundation
Support GTCC Facilities & Equipment
The GTCC Swim Across fundraiser is back with a few changes for 2020 to help maintain social distancing! Get ready to swim to raise money for two great causes—The ChadTough Foundation and GTCC (50/50)!
This free event is open to adult and child swimmers of all ages. Kick-boards and other swim aids are welcome for those who need them. Participating swimmers set a goal for the number of laps (25m) to swim in a 1hr time limit, find lap sponsors, and have fun on the morning of the Swim Across!
The twist in 2020 is that your Swim Across will be TIME-LIMITED! To maximize lane access, swimmers are challenged to count the number of laps they can swim in 1 hour as their goal for this year's Swim Across! There will be 3 x 1hr windows for swimming, and registered swimmers will sign-up for a 1hr swim time. Families may share a lane, but non-household members must use separate lanes. With these conditions, the Swim Across will be limited to 24 total families this year for the morning of Aug 1. Additional families may be added by appointment if demand requires.
This year, GTCC is targeting the purchase of a movie screen and sound equipment using the GTCC portion of money raised from the Swim Across.
An opportunity to support two great causes:
