Swimming Canada unveils plan for return to pool in wake of COVID-19
Phased approach with guidance from all levels of government
Swimming Canada has unveiled its plan for the return of aquatic sports as restrictions due to the COVID-19 pandemic begin to relax.
The first phase would focus on a small group of top athletes, such as those training at Swimming Canada high performance centres and Olympic and Paralympic Games hopefuls.
Future phases will include expanding and adding groups of athletes, leading to a full return to training and eventually competition.
Municipal, provincial and national health guidelines and restrictions would be observed throughout all phases.
Swimming has created a 15-person workgroup to oversee the plan.
