KCB Team Policies

In the event of last minute scheduling changes/cancellations, announcements will be posted to the site page, sent via e-mail and a Team Unify text alert. To receive text alerts (optional), confirm your cell phone number in Team Unify by following the instructions for enrollment. 

Severe Weather Policy:

The safety of our Blazers swimmers is of the utmost importance. As such in the event of severe weather the Blazers will follow the lead of the facilities at which we practice. If the facilities allow us to operate a practice we will endeavor to do so. Please use your best judgement as to the weather and your family's travel needs during periods of inclement weather in the decision on whether to attend or not.

Facility Use Policy:

Please keep in mind that we are guests of the facilities in which we train and we endeavor to maintain a positive relationship with the school districts by respecting their property and policies.

  • For the swimmers’ protection, all swimmers should arrive no earlier than 15 minutes before practice and should be picked up no later than 15 minutes after practice.  We cannot guarantee that there will be a coach present outside of those times; Blazers and its’ coaching staff cannot be responsible for swimmers outside of this time frame. 
  • The pool deck area is for swimmers and coaches only. In an effort to minimize disruptions and distractions, we ask that parents observe practice from the bleacher area only and refrain from approaching a coach, swimmer or group during practice, unless for an emergency.
  • Swimmers are responsible for their own personal property and equipment; personal items should be properly stored/secured in a swim bag during practice. KCB and Coaches are not responsible for lost or damaged personal items/equipment.
