BOCA RATON SWIM TEAM - a competitive swim team. Tryouts available by appointment only. Contact us at [email protected]

Boca Raton Swim Team Weather Policy is as follows:

Please do not call the pool office to see if the pool is open. If it is only raining --- all groups will train at their normal times.

If there is thunder and lightning in the area --the Boca Raton Aquatic Complex has a "Thorguard" lightning detection system. When the alarm goes off, we must exit the pool and get off the pool deck as soon as possible. BRST will handle this occurrence as follows.

1.  If storms are passing through we will wait up to 1/2 hour into a practice before deciding to cancel a group. For example if the pool is closed at 5:00 p.m. we will wait until 5:30 p.m. to cancel the groups. When the storms are being caused by a large system and weather looks to be the same over a longer time, we will cancel practices in a reasonable fashion.

2.  If the alarm goes off while we are in the pool and there is 45 Minutes of practice or less, children will be dismissed from practice.  In this case, a BRST Coach will remain at the pool until all children are picked up.

3.  If the alarm goes off while there is more than 45 Minutes of practice left we will take the team inside the building, until we can safely re-enter the pool, or practice is called off.

4. Tropical Weather - When a tropical storm or Hurricane is approaching BRST is subject to all school policies in regards to school closures. Please check with the Palm Beach School District for school closures.
