INCLEMENT WEATHER PLAN
When we are on "weather watch" and IF we cancel practice we will notify everyone using our team's social media accounts. We will first Tweet it, second Facebook it, third place it on our website and lastly send an email notice to the team. Our goal time typically for making such decisions is within the 3-4pm time frame at the latest during the school year AND in June & July our time frame is 12-1pm. In the summer, if we cancel the evening Birdland Pool practices, we typically will follow the Wednesday DCHS practice schedule with Intro swimming at the Development group time.
