Inclement Weather Policy for Tsunami Swim Team:

With the winter months already here, TST would like to review our policy for inclement weather. If there is a snowstorm or ice storm in the immediate area and the coaches deem the situation not safe, we will not have practice. Generally, we tend to follow school closings but many times the weather has subsided or cleared up. Consequently, we ask swimmers to always plan on coming to practice unless they get communication from our Board or Coaches. Our plan to communicate will generally be by 2:00 pm for evening practice. Please feel free to contact a coach if you haven't heard 2 hours before start time.

Sometimes a facility will close with impending weather arriving. If there is a last minute cancellation at any of these pools we will send to your phone via our Twitter account or the OnDeck app/Team Unify website as soon as possible. Also, families may call my phone below. We also ask that families use common sense in your decisions. If you feel it not safe to travel to a facility and practice has not been cancelled, please stay home. Please talk to your coach if you have questions regarding this policy. Thank you for your cooperation.

For summer months, typically the only weather related problem that prevents us from training outdoors is thunderstorms. If there is a thunderstorm in the immediate area and the coaches or lifeguards deem the situation not safe, we will not put swimmers in the water. However, such storms are usually localized and pass over very quickly. It could be raining hard with lightning at your house and be perfectly dry and sunny at the outdoor sight. Consequently, we ask swimmers to always plan on coming to practice, unless cancellations or changes have been posted on our site or sent to your phone via our Twitter account or the OnDeck app. Options during Thunderstorms may include re-scheduling practices to another facility, or canceling all or part of practice. Given the short length of the summer season, we want to take advantage of every opportunity that we have to train. Please talk to your coach if you have questions regarding this policy. Thank you for your cooperation.

 

In the event of inclement weather, practice cancellations/changes for practices will be posted on the Tsunami Twitter account or throught the OnDeck app asap for that day and emailed to all current Tsunami Swim Team registered members through the active Team Unify Tsunami database, if possible.

Tsunami makes any and all reasonable attempts to make practice available to its members. Some pools may be closed as their operational procedures are tied to their local school district’s closures or rules regarding weather. Practices may be moved to other open pools due to facility closures of this nature.

Safe travel conditions must be a priority for everyone. Please use good judgment in considering practice attendance during challenging weather conditions. Tsunami cannot guarantee safe travel during periods of inclement weather.

Note: If you are not receiving emails/text from TeamUnify's OnDeck app or Twitter updates from Tsunami, you will not receive practice cancellations, as the same systems will be used.
