What to bring to practice: suit, towel, goggles, water bottle. We also recommend wearing/bringing workout attire, socks and sneakers in case there is lightning and we have a dry land workout.
Weather Policy: The lightning radar alerts us when lightning strikes within an 8 mile radius. At that time, everyone needs to exit the pool and clear the pool deck. If that happens, practice moves to the gym where we do a dry land workout until the all clear alert is given (30 minutes after the last lightning strike within 8 miles). If we do a full hour of dry land, and the lightning is still within 8 miles, we will let the kids leave at that time.
