BUILDING ACCESS: There will be assigned practice times for practice sessions. Only swimmers and divers competing in the current session will be allowed access to the building. The building will open at 6 a.m. each day.
There will be a designated practice time from 1:45-3:45 p.m. assigned for those individuals who are not participating in the session. No other practice times will be available in the GAC.
After an individual is finished competing and cooling down in that session, the individual will exit the building. When all individuals from a team are finished competing and cooling down in that session, all travel party members should exit the building.
NCAA DECK PASSES: Each institution will be provided TWO deck passes for its swimming coaches and ONE deck pass for its diving coach (if they have divers competing). Coaches will only be allowed on the pool deck when their swimmers are competing in the competition pool. Coaches must leave the pool deck as soon as their swimmer has completed their race. Deck passes may be exchanged between an institution’s coaches based on swimmers competing in the competition pool. ONE additional coach is permitted in the training pool during competition. Institutions should determine how these deck passes will be used throughout the championship. No additional passes will be issued. If a coach is not coaching a swimmer in the competition pool or in the training pool, they should not be in the building.
MASSAGE THERAPISTS: Each institution is allowed ONE massage therapist on the GAC campus. Socially distanced stations will be provided to the massage therapists in the Special Events Center, which is adjacent to the GAC. If an institution brings more than one massage therapist, they must work from the team hotel. No additional spaces will be provided.
ATHLETIC TRAINERS: Each institution is allowed ONE athletic trainer to be present at the Aquatic Center. Athletic trainers will be seated in the grandstands with their respective teams and will not be allowed on the pool deck. They will coordinate treatment with the host athletic trainer, Jessica Klerlein.
SPORTS INFORMATION DIRECTOR. Each institution is allowed ONE SID OR Team Content Personnel on the GAC campus. That person will be provided a work-station in the Special Events Center, adjacent to the Aquatic Center. There will be no access to the competition venue or pool deck at any time. A television feed will be provided in the workroom.
LOCKER ROOMS: In an effort to keep participants socially distanced and to comply with local capacity restrictions in locker rooms, we will be utilizing all available restrooms, locker rooms and other satellite locations for changing stations. Individuals should not shower, shave or linger in these spaces in order to accommodate all participants. Lockers may not be used.
NO HOT OR COLD TUBS: There will not be any hot or cold tubs provided at the GAC for the NCAA Championships. No stretching mats will be provided. Individuals may bring their own yoga mat.
