Pool Closure Policy: Pool closures may happen. During the summer in our outdoor location they happen most likely due to inclement weather. We will continue lessons in a light rain if there are no lightning strikes within 5 miles. During our Fall/Winter/Spring sessions pool closures will  happen due to Natatorium Rental Closures. Should a pool closure of any type happen we will notify you as quickly as possible of cancelled classes.
