TIBU Azul practice for Friday has been changed: Practice will be from 5:15-7:00pm

Facility News: 

Quince Orchard Swim & Tennis Club:

  • Inclement Weather Policy: As an Air Dome is a non-permanent structure, safety guidelines require that the bubble close for thunder/lightning and for high winds.  The guidelines for thunder closures are the same as those for your summer pool:  the pool remains closed for 45 minutes following the last audible thunderclap. If this should happen during a practice, coaches will supervise the children in evacuating the bubble and practice will be cancelled (Pre-Covid allowed us to wait out the closure in an indoor room, however this is no longer possible given the current health crisis.)   If the weather forecast calls for high winds (gusts of 35mph or higher), Quince Orchard is likely to close as a precautionary measure.

Bender JCC of Greater Washington

  • Inclement Weather Policy: Outdoor pool will follow the same safety guidelines set forth by the county. 

    • When the air temperature does not reach or exceed 32 degrees (freezing) or when the wind chill is 25 degrees or below, the outdoor pool will be closed. 
    • The pool will be closed when conditions such as fog above the water line, snow, sleet or freezing rain prevent the staff from clearly viewing swimmers in the water. 
    • The outdoor pool will be closed when the Aquatics Director, Chief Operating Officer or Chief Executive Officer determines that unsafe conditions exist and may affect staff and/or members.
