Practices - Miscellaneous:
Use the following tips to help make the practices easier for you and your swimmer
  • The pool is located on the Mosley High School campus.  To access the pool, enter from Minnesota Ave.  See picture at the bottom of the page for more specific directions.  Please refrain from parking in spots reserved for MHS Coaches and Administrators.
  • Summer Splashes runs concurrently with Swim Lessons.  Please make sure your swimmer knows that they are in Summer Splashes so we can make sure to guide them to the correct lanes in the pool
  • There are bleachers on the pool deck, however, it is suggested that you bring your own folding chair if you plan to stay for the duration of the practice time
  • If you choose to bring chairs and remain on the deck during practice, we ask that you please set up away from the pool along the fence, and not behind the coaches/instructors nearest the shed and pump room
  • While practice is in session, we ask that you please refrain from walking up to the pool and interrupting practice to speak with your swimmer.  This can cause a distraction for all the swimmers in the immediate area as well as the instructors.  Even if you spy your swimmer misbehaving, please allow the instructors to call you over if need be, or speak with the Deck Supervisor who will assist you
  • Parents do not need to stay on site for the duration of practice, however, we ask that parents please walk into the pool area to pick up and drop off swimmers
  • Wear waterproof sunscreen!  The sun shines bright and there is no shade over the pool itself​
  • Wear goggles, tinted goggles are highly recommended! SCUBA style masks or anything that covers the nose is NOT recommended
Inclement Weather
Summer Splashes will adhere to the PCST Inclement Weather Policy.  Please be sure to check your email before leaving for practice on days where inclement weather is likely.  If there is not an email explicitly cancelling practice, it is safe to assume that we will attempt to hold practice.
     
At MHS the Deck Supervisor will announce to all swimmers, coaches, and parents when conditions warrant exit from the pool.  When the pool is cleared for inclement weather, the deck must also be cleared.  Swimmers, coaches, and parents who are remaining will seek cover by the MHS gym.
