2021 Season Notes - PLEASE READ
In order to allow for proper safety precautions as we return to the water, it is necessary to operate this season with practice groups, times and days that are different than the past. Please note that the practice information shown below is based on our current understanding of potential operating restrictions for this summer and is subject to change. For the safety of all coaches and swimmers, swimmers will only be permitted to attend practice on the days and times of their assigned practice group.
Team practice is held at the Olentangy Swim Association ("The Powell Pool"), Mondays through Fridays, including days of swim meets.
Please arrive 15 minutes before your scheduled practice time so that you can do dry-land warm up and practice can start on time.
Please see the Team Suits, Caps & Equipment page for information on recommended practice equipment for your swimmer.

Practice Cancellation Policy
We will practice cold or hot. rain or shine. Practice is sometimes delayed but rarely canceled. However, our swimmer's safety is our top concern so we have the following inclement weather policy:
- Rain and/or Cold Temps
Practice will be held as normal. For unusually cold/rainy weather check your email and text messages. If nothing has been communicated stating otherwise, practice will be held as scheduled.
- "Pop-Up" Summer Storms with Thunder and/or Lighting
Practice will be held as normal. Typical summer storms tend to blow through quickly so plan on having your athlete at the pool for his or her normal practice time. Just be aware that thunder or lightning will cause practice to be delayed, put on hold, or completed early. The pool and deck must be cleared for 20 minutes from the last time thunder was heard or lightning was sighted. Our coaches will make the delay/cancel decisions as needed.
- Severe/Extreme Weather
In the rare case of storms that are long-lasting and severe, we will try to get an email sent out to all members as soon as possible to confirm cancelation of practice.
