Emergency Action Plan (in case of injury)

Emergency Action Plan (EAP)

  • The primary lifeguard or head coach (if certified in lifeguarding) recognizes that someone needs immediate help and blows one long whistle indicating they are performing a rescue.
  • If further assistance is required, the primary lifeguard or coach will raise one fist in the air and yell for assistance. Coach or Captain will blow three long whistle blasts and inform the front desk guard who will then, activate the Emergency Action Plan and immediately assist the primary lifeguard/head coach.
  • Remaining coaches, captains, or pool personal will assist in clearing the pool of swimmers. Swimmers should walk to the benches and sit down, out of the way unless asked to assist. They are to remain on the benches until emergency has passed.
  • Coach or Captain will inform front desk to call 911 and assist in clearing pathways designated for EMS use. If the front desk guard is assisting in rescue, Coach/Captain is to call 911. If there no coaches, captains, or guards are available, have an able-bodied patron/swimmer perform this duty and immediately report back to the primary lifeguard or head coach that they have done so.
  • The coach, primary, and secondary lifeguards will follow the General Rescue Procedures, outlined by the Red Cross, and continue to administer care until EMS has arrived.
  • If team is at an away meet, follow the EAP procedures per that location.

Once EMS has arrived and taken over the situation (Coach responsibilities):

  • Notify a manager and Athletic Director (if not already done)
  • Fill out an Incident Report and a Medical Emergency Report
  • Get witnesses to fill out a witness statement.
  • DO NOT speak to the media under any circumstances!
  • Conduct a school debriefing about the incident, inform swim parents immediately.
General Rules & Safety Precautions

GENERAL RULES - In addition to the Swim & Dive Safety Guidelines, WIAA Eligibility, School Rules, and Coaches Expectations:

  • COVID-19 Warning! You may not attend practice if you have been recently in contact with someone with a confirmed case of COVID-19, if you are experiencing a new symptom of shortness of breath, sore throat, dry cough, chills, fever within the last 48 hours, diarrhea, excessive flatulence, or vomiting in the last 24 hours. You may not return to practice until approved by our Athletic Department.
  • When missing practice, an athlete must notify the coach in writing. Any unexcused absence may disqualify an athlete from lettering.
  • If using an inhaler, inhaler should be located on the pool deck, and coaches as well as another athlete should be notified of the location.
  • Never dive or jump into a lane during warm-ups. This could cause a serious injury! Step-in entries only during warm-ups.
  • If an athlete gets cut and bleeds or has a nosebleed, the swimmer should stay in one location and wait for assistance by the lifeguard. (Each spot of blood must be sanitized; even for a stubbed toe)
  • Water bottles should not be shared.
  • Valuables should not be kept in the locker room or left in cars.
  • Thursday practices are considered mandatory. (Meets will be discussed on these days)
  • If injured at practice, the lifeguard must fill out an injury report and the coach will notify the swimmer’s guardian.
  • If an athlete is sick the day before a swim meet, it will be assumed she will not be able to attend the swim meet and may be removed from previously discussed events.
  • An athlete experiencing fever, diarrhea, or any other contagious illness, may not attend practice.
  • Swearing or negative talk will not be tolerated.
  • No sitting or pulling on the lane ropes.
  • Swimmers must shower before entering pool and must not walk the deck with outside shoes
  • Backpack with valuables should not be left on the ground to avoid damage from other items being dropped on them.
  • Do not walk on the pool deck with swim flippers on.
  • Honesty is always the best policy. Athletes caught lying may be asked to leave the team.
  • Please, do not share aspirin, Ibuprofen or other such pain relievers with other athletes.
  • The coach decides what an athlete will swim or dive in a meet based on skill, individual goals, and team goals. A player should register for desired events but it is ultimately up to the coach.
