Swim Team Inclement Weather / Typhoon Policy
PROGRAM Swim Team Inclement Weather / Typhoon Policy

Swim team is still practicing unless there is lightning, thunder, or we are in TCCOR-2 (or higher).

Lightning/Thunder Policy
• If lightning or thunder occurs during practice, all swimmers will be moved into the locker rooms for 30-minutes.
• If there is a re-occurrence of lightning or thunder, the clock resets and the 30-minute count restarts.
• If there is less than ~45-minutes remaining in a practice, practice is cancelled.
• If the swimmers return home on the buses, they may be able to depart earlier than normal, but that is not always possible pending the bus drivers' schedules.
• If in doubt, contact the pool: Foster 50 - 645-2211 | 098-970-2211.

Lightning/Thunder at or after:
• 3:05 pm = B2 Cancel
• 4:05 pm = B1/BA/W1/W2 Cancel
• 5:05 am or pm = Masters Cancel
• 8:05 am = B2 Cancel
• 9:05 am = B1/BA/W1/W2 Cancel

Typhoon Policy
1. TC-2: Youth and Masters Swim Team practice is cancelled, pools "clean-up" (lane-lines stored, etc.).

2. If we go into TC-2 during practice or during the bus runs:
• If a dedicated swim team bus has made pick-ups, they will stop at the pool, then deliver swimmers to their home destinations once the DoDEA/SAC buses have made their drop-off at the pool. If a DoDEA/SAC bus has made pick-ups, they will deliver the swimmers to the pool.
• Swimmers at the pool will be delivered to their home destinations.

3. SCHOOL YEAR: If TC-2 occurs prior to the regular swim team bus pick-up, the buses do not make pick-ups. Swimmers should go home via alternate means. IF A SWIMMER GETS ON A DOD/SAC BUS FOR SWIM TEAM PRACTICE WHEN THERE IS NO PRACTICE DUE TO TC-2, THE BUS WILL DELIVER THEM TO THE POOL. THE SWIMMER MUST BE PICKED UP FROM THE POOL BY A PARENT/GUARDIAN.

4. TC-1: Pools close. Pool may close earlier than TC-1 if weather conditions warrant.

5. TC-All Clear/Storm Watch: Clean-up procedures to re-open a pool after a typhoon can vary from a few minutes to a few days. Swim Team resumes no earlier than 24-hours after All-Clear/Storm Watch. We want to get back to practices as soon as possible, but realize that we cannot use the pools until they are in working order. If in doubt, contact the pool.  

Is the pool open? Call the pool. Foster 50 - 645-2211 / 098-970-2211
