Cancellation Policy


The Community Center is closed for all major holidays and all closings are usually posted in prominent locations for everyone to see.  There will not be GCST swim practices when the Community Center is closed.


It is the GCST policy not to have swim practice if the public schools are closed due to inclement weather.

In the case of storms, we will not cancel practice.  We will watch the weather and make the appropriate decision on whether or not to enter the pool.  We will not enter the pool if lightening is detected within 5 miles of the Community Center.  We will remain out of the water for a 30 minute duration from the last detected lightening.

We will make every effort to get in the pool, if at all possible.  If not, and if the situation is safe, we may run a dryland practice in lieu of a water workout.  Ultimately, if there are storms in the area, it is up to the parents to make a decision to attend or not to attend practice.
