Practice Cancellations & Pool Closures

Thunderstorms
If swimmers are asked to exit the pool due to lightening during thunderstorms, swimmers will stay inside the pool building and land-drill or exercise on the pool deck or other safe area.

If the building is closed (e.g., power outage), then the coaches will notify parents. Coaches will ensure all swimmers have a ride home.  At least one coach will remain at the pool until all swimmers are picked up.

Winter Weather 
If the pool is open, practice is on. However, as snow/ice/slush conditions may vary throughout the area, parents should use their discretion about whether or not it is safe to be on the roads.

Water Contamination
Land drills and conditioning exercises will be performed.

The Arlington County Aquatics webpage will provide the most current information about pool closures: http://www.apsva.us/aquatics.
