The Vashon Seals Swim Team follow the Vashon School District attendance policy. If it is deemed to dangerous to go to school, practice will be cancelled, otherwise please assume that practice will go-ahead.
Information regarding any cancellation will be sent out via email as early as possible. Please email the head coach, or call 206-463-0378 if you are concerned.
Weather Related Cancellations
Electrical storms are often the reason practice gets cancelled at short notice. Whether at the outdoor pool or the Athletic Club, if there is thunder and lightning, we clear the pool and the deck. Swimmers can not get back into the water until 30mins have passed without either thunder or lightning.
Cancellations due to Issues at the Facility
Sometimes there are unforeseen problems at the facility (temperature issues or poop in the pool!) and practice may be cancelled at short notice. Every effort will be made to contact parents for early pick up.
Coaches have a list on deck of other families with whom it is safe to send an athlete home should it not be possible to get hold of a swimmer’s parents. Please ensure that you have provided this information.
