If practices are canceled the following will occur:

Morning Practices

  • An email cancelling practice will be send out at least 45 minutes prior to practice
  • The cancelation will also be posted on our website in the News area
  • The facilities (Supreme and the Swim Center) will be notified of the cancelation

Afternoon/Evening Practices

  • A determination will be made by 2pm on the day there is inclement weather

Always you use your best judgment! If you feel it is unsafe for you (or in the case of some of the senior athletes, themselves) to drive to practice then please do not do so. Safety comes first!
