March 2021: Community Update
I hope that everyone is doing well and was able to enjoy some of the nice weather outside this past weekend!
Over the last few weeks, our staff has been working diligently to prepare for the 2021 water season. We are continuing to closely monitor the evolving COVID-19 pandemic and the return to sport guidelines and are updating our T.R.A.P. 2021 plan accordingly. As of right now, we are aiming to begin on-water programming on Monday, March 15th...conditions permitting!
Over the next few days, we will be sharing the full details of the T.R.A.P. 2021 protocols and procedures along with the 2021 registration links for membership and team programming. Some of the updates in the T.R.A.P. 2021 protocols and procedures include:
Enhanced daily screening protocols.
Masked, non-household team boat rowing in 4+/x’s or 6-people per Dragon Boat.
Podded programming structure with a maximum of 9-athletes per pod.
Social distancing and strict cleaning procedures will continue
Indoor training (ergs, body circuits, stretching, etc.), indoor weightlifting, and use of the showers will remain prohibited as we begin the season.
I know that everyone is looking forward to returning to the water and we cannot wait to see everyone safely returning to our campuses. It is critical to keep in mind that COVID-19 is still a threat to our community and our operations. Everyone must continue to approach every trip to a TRRA Campus with a safety-first mindset and a commitment to ensuring the overall wellness of our community. The light at the end of the COVID-19 tunnel is visible and we all must remain patient and diligent to ensure we reach that light.
Be on the lookout for more details and information in the next few days and dust off the cold weather rowing and paddling gear...Spring is coming!
