Swim Team

Coaches Moe, Win and Kyaw will start ISY Swim Team practices from 10am-4pm several days/week.  A sign-up sheet based on age/ability has been shared with the swim team so that ISY can provide adequate training while permitting only 5 swimmers at a time in the pool. 

Parents will be required to use the social distancing guidelines outlined during swim team practice.  The locker rooms will be available for swim team members but social distancing guidelines must be followed at all times.  Lifeguards/swim coaches will help limit the number of children in the locker room at one time.
