PTAC Gator 2020 Season

Dear Gators, 

We hope this message finds you and your family well.  We regret to inform you that the Greater Columbus Swim League, with a unanimous decision, determined to suspend the 2020 competition season.  While the Governor announced that pools could open on May 26th, please understand pools can apply social distancing measures, while swim teams realistically cannot.  Additionally, fifty percent (50%) of the league pools had planned opening dates of July 1st, or not at all.  Greater Columbus Swim League felt the logistics, limitations and safety ultimately could not be achieved this season.  The GCSL and PTAC Board will continue to meet and plan for next season.  We will also plan activities for this summer!! Even though our swimming season won't be the same, YOU ARE STILL A GATOR, and we hope you will join us to celebrate many things, most importantly, our seniors!  More information will be forthcoming regarding Gator(socially distanced) activities in the near future!!  


- Registration Fees: We will communicate information regarding registration fee refunds early next week (after we are able to confer with swimtopia on the best route for reimbursement.)  

- Pool Membership Fees: As of right now, the pool is working out opening logistics.  Our last communication with the township indicated the pool was planning to open July 1st, with limitations.  If you would like a pool pass refund, please e-mail your request to Bonnie Reife at breife@plaintownship.org.  She will complete the reimbursement form and submit the same to the Trustees for approval.  You should expect to receive a refund in approximately 6-8 weeks.  If you have any questions regarding this process, please let us know and we will do all we can to assist.  PLEASE NOTE, we have no control over pool pass refunds. 

We know it is not the e-mail and announcement any of us wanted to hear.  Summer swimming/diving is such a big part of our typical summer.  However, swimmer/coach/volunteer/spectator safety is, and always will be, our first priority.   

Thank you all, most sincerely, for your continued support of our summer swim team.  As always, please reach out to us with any questions.  

Very truly yours, 

PTAC Board
