Inclement Weather Policy
The Gators swim team follows the American Red Cross guidelines for thunderstorms. There will be a 20 minute waiting period after the first sighting of lightning or sound of thunder before swimmers can re-enter the pool area. Any subsequent lightning or thunder will require a 30 minute waiting period.
On stormy days when a cancel/postponement occurs, we'll send email/text announcing which practices are affected. Please note that these guidelines apply only to the practices. The postponement or cancellation of a swim meet will be at the discretion of the meet directors.
If there is inclement weather in the area prior to practice time, we will wait until shortly before practice begins to announce any changes or cancellations since the weather can change or move through quickly. Please do not email us to inquire about meet or practice status as we will likely not know the status until its announced and would not be able to get back to you timely. If no notice is sent, then please assume practice is on as scheduled.
Use the Swimtopia app and enable notifications to receive alerts on your phone, which will include weather cancellation and delays as well as any other urgent messages.
