MACM Weather Policy is as follows:
Please do not call the pool office to see if the pool is open.
If it is only raining --- all groups will train at their normal times.
If there is thunder and lightning in the area --the Tamiami Aquatic Complex has a "Thorguard" lightning detection system. When the alarm goes off, we must exit the pool and get off the pool deck as soon as possible. MACM will handle this occurrence as follows.
1. We will wait up to 1/2 hour into a practice before deciding to cancel a group. For example if the pool is closed at 5:00 p.m. we will wait until 5:30 p.m. to cancel the groups.
2. If the alarm goes off while we are in the pool and there is 45 Minutes of practice or less children will be dismissed from practice. In this case, a MACM Coach will remain at the pool until all children are picked up.
3. If the alarm goes off while there is more than 45 Minutes of practice left we will take the team inside the building, until we can safely re-enter the pool, or practice is called off.
As always, you are free to contact your athlete’s Coach if you have any questions.
