To start off, thank you for donating your time to read this. I do hope you sign.

Swimming is an integral part of many athletes' lives. Club swimming helps put swimmers into a position to get college scholarships, and to improve their overall well-being.

Throughout the Covid-19 Pandemic, LIE has been very uncooperative with its swimmers, consistently cutting hours, changing locations (with long drives for some swimmers), and shifting the schedule. This has prevented many swimmers from swimming. 

The most egregious act happened just recently when Freeport Recreation Center turned out NOT to have the required permits, resulting in a schedule change early in the morning for some swim groups. By early, we mean from 6:00-7:30 am on schooldays. This normally would not be a problem, however, because part of the afternoon schedule is still maintained, this drastically reduces the amount of sleep between sessions. More than that, students whose classes start between 7:30-8:00 cannot attend the full practices due to school. 

The cost of these clubs is incredibly high, thus the quality must be high as well. However, though this pandemic, the club has been unclear. They have manipulated the schedule to a point where the total number of time swimming has been reduced by HOURS.

 

Please sign this petition to help bring justice for these swimmers.

Thank you.
