Practice Changes

  • All practices are canceled for Monday, July 6
    • ALL PRACTICES on Monday, July 6th have been cancelled due to an individual reporting a positive COVID at the CISD Natatorium.

      At this time, details are not available.  The CISD Natatorium Coordinator will update us tomorrow with potential exposures.  Current plans are to reopen on Tuesday, July 7th – this may change and we will update you as soon as we receive further information.

General Update

Practice Time Slots

  • We will return to practice on Monday, June 15, 2020 at the CISD Natatorium located at 19133 David Memorial Dr.,Shenandoah, TX 77385.
  • The CISD Natatorium is limiting the number of swimmers to two people per lane, starting at opposite ends of the pool
    • We have been granted an increase in lanes for the summer to help accommodate this.
  • Your coach will direct you to which lane would be most appropriate so that you are surrounded by swimmers of similar speed and ability.

Sign-Up Genius

  • You will ONLY be able to sign up for a practice slot if you are an Active member of WMST with current USMS Membership, and in good standing.
  • You will have to sign-up for each practice on a weekly Sign-Up Genius link that will be emailed, posted on Facebook, and located on our website.

  • The restriction on the number of practices you can sign up for has been removed.  However, be mindful that we are a large team with a limit on the number of swimmers per practice.  Please do not overly abuse the removal of this restriction.  If you know you cannot attend a practice you previously signed up for, please remove your name from the sign-up to make it available for another swimmer.
