COOL WEATHER UPDATES
OUR SCHOOL YEAR GUIDELINE: Because we practice in local school pools, we must follow the rules of the school system when it comes to building usage. In general, if school is canceled for a weather event, our practices will also be canceled. Please keep your eye on your email, our social media accounts, and the website for up-to-date information if the weather looks bad.
OUR SUMMER GUIDELINE: We will always strive to hold practices. Just a light rain, we will swim. Hard rain with no lightning, we will swim. If lightning is sighted, the pool and deck will be cleared for 30 minutes. If the pool is cleared due to lightning and there are 30 minutes or less of practice remaining, practice will be over. If there are more than 30 minutes remaining, we will wait it out in most cases.
If storms move in before practice starts and it looks like they are going to remain over the area for the morning, we will make every effort to cancel practice as early as possible and our communication plan will be put into place.
We will seek to communicate with everyone in these primary ways.
- We will post updates on the weather page of our website
- We will send an email to our active roster
- We will post on all social media (Facebook and Twitter)
SOCIAL MEDIA: Join our facebook page and follow us on twitter. We will begin using Twitter more frequently as a way to communicate to you at short notice, so follow us! If you're not on twitter, but would like to get text messages from us, you can text "follow @coolswimteam" to 40404 to get signed up.
