Phase 3 guidelines for outdoor pools can be found beginning on page 20 at this site:

https://www.governor.virginia.gov/media/governorvirginiagov/governor-of-virginia/pdf/Virginia-Forward-Phase-Three-Guidelines.pdf

Free swim will be allowed during phase 3 and while we are allowed to have 100 people inside the fenced area, in order to comply with State distancing recommendations, we can have no more than 45 people in the pool water at any given time.  

The sign-up genius will no longer be used at this time because of this increase in allowed numbers and guest passes will be allowed at the pool beginning July 1st.  Please be considerate of other members and not use more than 2 or 3 at a time during peak hours.     

Life rafts and other pool items may be used but please bring your own and take them home with you.  All Edgehill water equipment (kickboards, noodles, etc.) will still not be made available during this phase.

The diving area and diving board will be available at this time; however, the splash (baby) pool will still be off-limits.  Please practice social distancing when using the diving board.    

The pool deck will be set up in a way that encourages separation between families.  Please use best judgement when choosing your seating.  There will also be cleaners available to members who wish to clean deck furniture before and after using.  

Thank you for your continued patience as we work through this time.  The aim of the association is to open the pool completely as soon as possible in a manner that allows us all to feel as safe as possible.  Adjustments to these guidelines will be implemented immediately as State guidelines change.

Swimteam and Swimmers


Parents of swimmers,

The Edgehill Association is currently monitoring the State of Virginia’s COVID response directives and will open the pool as soon as we are able. While swim team practices happen during the hours before the pool opens, the team must also abide by the same State response directives. Our pool is ready to go and we look forward to opening soon.

Steve Fisher - EHA president

Parents,

The Virginia Peninsula Swim Union (VPSU) is continuing to work on guidelines and structures for safe meets this summer.  Right now, the tentative schedule has a shortened season with a four-meet schedule, the first being July 6th. More specific details will follow as information becomes clearer and more available. Practices will start sometime in June depending on State, local, and community directives. The Edgehill Eel swim board is working closely with the Edgehill Association and the VPSU to get this season underway.

We need to turn in an approximate list of the numbers of swimmers by age group to the VPSU by June 1st for insurance purposes. We would like everyone to please fill out the survey ASAP at the following link: https://docs.google.com/forms/d/e/1FAIpQLScxHk1FajQhZSLDuMKM4YIaEaALAJW59B1jh4hYu099UVtRhA/viewform?usp=sf_link
