The FPST Board has been closely following all the updates and recommendations from the National government, local government and CDC. As we began to anticipate the upcoming season, we never would have thought of needing a contingency plan for quarantine times. The global outbreak of COVID-19 has changed so much in our lives and in the world of sports. After receiving feedback from you on our survey, having discussions as a board, and factoring in the timeline and guidelines that have been given, we have, with heavy hearts, decided to cancel our swim season for 2020.
Our main concern is the health and safety of all involved in our organization. Logistically, maintaining social distancing and safe health practices would be challenging. As much as we want to provide a fun environment of exercise for the swimmers this summer, the restrictions placed on group gatherings greatly limit the level of activity we can participate in. It is our sincerest hope that all of our Pirate Families will come back ready to swim in 2021!
