Return to AGUA Update
At this point in time, we are still waiting for guidelines about pool openings and procedures from our local government. While we await further guidance, we ask that all swimmers and families familiarize themselves with the following document:

We understand that questions will develop regarding our Return to Pool Plan. Please keep in mind that this is our overall plan as we begin with our senior groups. More information, including details for Battery Park City, will be made available in the coming weeks. 

We kindly ask that you reserve your questions for our upcoming mandatory Zoom meetings. These meetings will be held in the coming weeks to review the procedures outlined in this document. Attendance is required in order for athletes to return to Asphalt Green and AGUA practice. 

We appreciate your continued support through these unprecedented times and hope to see you soon.
