QVST Summer Swim Season

Our swim season will run from Monday, June 1 through Sunday, July 12.

We practice Monday through Friday. Friday is typically considered "Fun Friday" so be on the lookout for more information on that coming soon.

We are planning to host our own city meet style competition on the weekend of July 11 and 12. More TBD.

Drop-Off and Pick-Up Procedures

When dropping off:
  1. Drive through the loop by the clubhouse and drop your swimmer off at the gate. Do not get out of your car or you will block the way for others dropping off and/or picking up.
  2. Park and walk up to the main pool area.

When picking up:

  1. Drive through the loop and pick your swimmer up. Please be mindful of other cars trying to drop off and/or picking up. Do not park the car and get out.
  2. Park and walk up to the main pool area.

The address for the clubhouse is 1336 Country Squire Dr.

The address for the parking lot is 254 Hunters Blind Dr.

PARENTS AND OTHER CHILDREN/SWIMMERS MAY STAY ON DECK DURING PRACTICE. Please distance yourself from others as you see fit. We all know the recommendations, but monitoring that will be up to what works best for you and your family.

Practice Procedures

During practice:

  • Bring your own chair (parents) and water bottle (parents and swimmers).
  • Pack extra goggles as sharing will be discouraged unless the swimmer sharing the goggles is a family member.
  • Bring your own towel (or two on a cool day).

After practice:

  • The use of the showers is discouraged at this time.
  • Swimmers who need to stay back after their practice to wait on a sibling/friend are asked to stay inside the pool area and social distance from one another as best as possible

Team Shirts -- Orders Due by June 5

Quail Valley Swim Team would like to commemorate this unique season with a t-shirt that has a design that is a little different (not our normal) design than in years past. Nothing too crazy ... hopefully, just something that stands out and helps us remember this memorable time.

In an effort to support a local business impacted by the virus, Frenzy, Inc. is designing and printing our team shirts this year. While a sample of the shirt is not available yet, we trust they will do a great job and will share the design as soon as it is available.

Here's how to order your memorable 2020 Team Shirt:

  • Complete the 2020 Swim Team T-Shirt Order Form (Google Form) linked here.
  • Questions? Please email the Swim Team Coordinator.

*All t-shirt orders must be received no later than Friday, June 5th at 12 noon.

**All t-shirts are $15 if placed with the initial order. Payment MUST be received ahead of time and is due to Jennifer Barkevich no later than June 5th. (Leave your money with a coach if I am not at practice.)

***A small number of shirts may be available for sale after the initial order and will cost $20.

Swim Pictures -- Save the Date for Friday, June 12

Due to COVID-19, we will not be taking a large team photo as we have done in years past. However, we want to provide parents an opportunity to have their swimmers picture taken to remember the season. We are once again supporting a local business, Brandi Blake Photography, who will be taking pictures on Friday, June 12th during normal practice times.

Brandi has asked me to share the following information with you:

  • Pictures with small groups of family, friends, and coaches (if they feel comfortable) are allowed.
  • Please complete the Release and Waiver of Liability During COVID-19 linked here.

The following will be sent via email from Active:

  • Quail Valley Ordering Instructions
  • Quail Valley Rec League Order Form 2020
