Trident National Team will be following the phased approach developed by our Governing Body, USA Triathlon, as we look to build out our training sessions. This phased approach was developed for the safety of athletes and the multisport community, and it will also help to protect our athlete’s families and all of our neighbors in the Fort Hunt and Alexandria communities. Knowing that we all want to be able to return to training and competition, we value your safety as our primary concern!
TNT will host practices consistent with Federal, State, and Local government regulations and guidelines. We are also relying on data, resources and guidance from medical experts, including the WHO, CDC, and OSHA that have been developed to guide USAT’s phased approach.
The following Policies and Procedures have been developed specifically with regard to COVID-19.
Coronavirus/COVID-19 protective measures will be in effect during all TNT practices and events.
Athletes and coaches will maintain 10 feet of physical distancing. Masks will be worn during arrival and departure and at all times when on the pool deck. Masks are not required for athletes during physical activity or for coaches when 10 feet physical distance can be effectively maintained.
By participating with TNT you increase the risk of exposure to Coronavirus/COVID-19.
Anyone attending any TNT event or practice must abide by the following:
Anyone experiencing any symptoms of illness such as cough, shortness of breath or difficulty breathing, fever, chills, muscle pain, headache, sore throat, or new loss of taste or smell may NOT attend.
Anyone having traveled internationally within the last 14 days may not attend.
Anyone having traveled to a highly impacted area within the US in the last 14 days may not attend.
Anyone believed to have been exposed to someone with a suspected and/or confirmed case of the Coronavirus/COVID-19 in the past 14 days may not attend.
Anyone having been diagnosed with Coronavirus/Covid-19 must be cleared to participate by a physician before attending.
Temperature checks will be conducted at all practices. Any athlete with a fever of 100.3 degrees or more Fahrenheit will not be admitted.
Athletes attending swim practice at GW or MV Rec are required to have a bin to hold all personal items and swim gear on the pool deck.
ReCenter restrooms will be available for emergencies only. Showers and changing facilities are NOT available. Athletes should come to practice changed and ready. Be sure to use the restroom at home prior to attending. FCPA requires that coaches clean the restrooms after use by any athlete, thereby removing the coach from the deck and requiring a temporary halt to practice.
Due to the necessary check-in requirements during the ongoing pandemic, athletes arriving more than 5 minutes late will not be admitted.
Initially during the Fall of 2020, entrance to ReCenters may be via a side door and parents may not be permitted on deck.
TNT will update policies and procedures regularly as the current situation demands.
No credits or refunds will be given for any missed practices due to the above policies. Credit may be given in the event that facilities close due to the pandemic.
Stay Safe, Stay Healthy!
