Communications : With summer thunderstorms making frequent appearances, we are often forced to cancel practices due to lightning. Generally, if we hear thunder, or our weather app indicates lightning within 6-8 miles, we will clear the pool for 30 minutes. As soon as a practice is cancelled, we will
1) send out a text message
2) send out an email, and
3) update the website News section with the cancellation.
Please make sure your TeamUnify accounts are up-to-date with a
current email AND mobile phone number so that you will always
receive our time-critical messages.
: We can’t help but notice several children repeatedly
dipping toes, stepping into, and otherwise playing in the shallow
end of the pool during practices. This is very distracting to the
coaches who must keep their full attention on the swimmers they are
Please make sure your children do not enter the pool unless the
coaches have instructed them to do so.
Likewise, siblings should not be playing in the baby pool, shallow
area, or near any water’s edge at all for safety
Please help us keep swim practices safe and injury-free by
encouraging swimmers and siblings to keep their activities within
the grassy area while practice is underway. Also, please remind
them as always there is no running on the pool deck and no climbing
on furniture or fences. THANK YOU!!!
