As Toronto enters into Stage 2 of Ontario’s restart phase today (June 24, 2020), the Shadow Water Polo Board of Directors are carefully considering the process of how the coaches and athletes return to water polo. In developing the plan, we are reviewing information provided by the City of Toronto, Water Polo Canada and the Toronto Pan Am Sports Complex (our main training facility). Of utmost concern to us is the wellbeing of our coaches, athletes and parents. For that reason, we believe that the return to the pool will be gradual to ensure that all guidelines are adhered to.
At this time, we have outlined the following plan. Please note that this is a plan only and subject to change.
1. July: Zoom dryland training 2x/week
2. August: Return to TPASC 2x/week (evenings) + Zoom dryland training 2x/week
3. September: 2020-2021 season starts (details to be determined)
As guidelines change we will review and continue to evaluate our program to ensure that we keep everyone safe and that we get back in the pool soon!
