All swimmers are required to exit the water and go into the lockerooms for safety in the case of thunder/lightning. We will be required to wait 30 minutes after the last sighting of lighting(or hearing of thunder) to return to swimming. While we do NOT swim with lightning or thunder, we do swim with rain. If you do not see any messages on the places below, it means we are moving forward with practices.
Edina Swim Club will use several methods to alert families to any cancellations:
1. Posting to the Edina Swim Club website using the scrolling banner on the main page.
2. Posting to the Edina Swim Club Facebook page.
3. Posting to the Edina Swim Club Twitter account. Go into settings to get in the moment twitter alerts.
Please check these sites before and during any lesson where weather may be an issue. On mornings where weather may become a challenge, make sure your swimmer has someone who is able to pick them up in case of a cancellation during a lesson. The safety of our swimmers is important, and we will do our best to inform families as soon as possible with any weather cancellations.
