Swim Meet 101
Rain or Shine Unless there is thunder or lightning, WE SWIM IN THE RAIN.
If you are in doubt, check the Flyer Hotline # 855-99FLYERS (855-993-5937).
Fairfax County regulations require pools to remain closed for 45 minutes after a visual sighting of lightning and/or sound of thunder. We will make every attempt to wait out the storm and resume practices.
We use SMS/Texting for team notifications as well. Directions on how to opt for text messages are included in the welcome registration letter and Handbook.
Please note: if a meet is cancelled due to weather, volunteer credits are not earned. In the event of thunder and lightning, we attempt to wait out the storm. If the meet is cancelled, we attempt to reschedule it. Sometimes meets are not rescheduled due to the busy swim calendar. Volunteer credits are only earned when volunteer jobs are completed.
