As you can see from the updates on the calendar tab on the website, there are many cancelations happening at Mariner.
Here are some notes on this topic:
- We expect some closures at Mariner (typically 2/month) due to concerts, games, special events, mechanical issues, etc. Normal closures like this are built into the SRST fees. In other words, as a year-round sports team you are paying monthly for a year-round experience with some closures and schedule changes.
- Mariner is closed on all Holidays by school policy.
- We are a two pool swim team and will continue to be.
- Swimmers at either SAC or Mariner can swim at the other facility when there is a closure. On a rare occasion both pools are closed.
Given the abnormal number of closures at Mariner this season and considering some families cannot make the drive to Snohomish I am going to offer closure credits to Everett area families that request it.
Here is how the credits will work:
A) If a family comes to SAC during the Mariner closures they
cannot request a credit.
B) Families must email Coach Ben and request their credit.
C) Coach Ben will look at the total number of workouts offered M-F for the month in question. Each workout will be given an even dollar value for the monthly membership fees associated with the roster group. For all closures above 2 per month, a prorated credit will be applied. Example: There are 6 closures in a month for AG2 ($230/mo). Removing the expected/reasonable number of closures (2) leaves 4 closures. We will assume 20 available workouts in the month for this example. This gives each workout a value of $11.50. 4 closures x $11.50 would come to a total credit of $46.
D) Families are not offered credits when missing practice (when the pool is open); this is only for pool closures.
Please let me know if there are any questions.
