WEATHER 
What if the weather is bad? 

Practice 

  • Practice is rarely canceled. 
  • If it's raining and the temps are warm, we will still hold swim and dive pratice during rain when the are temps are warm. Generally, we practice even if it seems cold. The water temperature is always the same, and active kids stay warm during their practice time. 
  • In the event of thunder, lightning or strong storms, kids will be taken by coaches to the locker rooms. Goodman pool is required to wait 30 minutes following thunder and/or lightening. 

Meets 

  • Cancellation of meets is up to the host pool and are rarely canceled.
  • Due to our short season, hosts will do all that they can to run a meet. Some accomodations might include a late start or a shorterned meet, meaning that each swimmer gets in one swim which then counts towards the three needed meets for All City.
  • Most pools are required to wait 30 minutes  when there is thunder or lightening.
  • Considering athletes must participate in three meets in order qualify for the All City meets, every effort will made to run the meet or a shortened meet.


Is practice or the meet canceled? 

  • Practice and meets are rarely canceled and we do our best to inform you ASAP.
  • The best way to stay informed if weather is questionable is to check your email. We will also do our best to update website or facebook  
  • Finally, participation of your athlete is up to your discretion and you are welcome to keep them home.
