Weather Policy

With high humidity and hot temperatures comes the chance for afternoon thunderstorms.  Please note that swim team practices will go on if there is just light to moderate rain.  If there is thunder or lightning, however, the lifeguards will close the pool immediately, thereby cancelling swim team practice.  If thunder is heard, the lifeguards have to keep the pool closed for 45 minutes before giving the all clear. This means that one practice may be cancelled, but a later practice may go on. Unfortunately, it's not easy to predict, so advance notice is usually not possible.  

Weather Cancellation Policy:
For 30 min practice
Thunder/Lightning/ within 30 mins. of scheduled start/during = cancellation
Temps 65 and below = cancellation

For 45 min practices
Thunder/Lightning within 15 mins. of scheduled start/during = cancellation
Temps 60 and below = cancellation

For 60 min+ practices
Thunder/Lightning after 15 mins. of practice = cancellation
Temps 60 and below = cancellation

*Swimmers walking/riding bikes should not attend practice in the face of obvious threat of severe weather
