Practices and Weather
We WILL swim in rain - as long as the bottom of the pool can be seen. However, we cannot swim in thunder or lightning. We will wait 20 minutes for each clap of thunder or lightning. All practices are never (or rarely) canceled. We will wait them out and get whichever practice in that time allows for. Many of the storms pass quickly, so we may lose one practice but not the rest of them.
Stay in the know with practice updates texted to you. To sign up text @d7khcd4 to 81010 to join. See below for full instructions.
Prevent Swimmers' Ear
Ear Preventative Care Instructions:
Put 6-7 drops of 50/50 rubbing alcohol to white vinegar solution in each ear at night. Then drain the ear. The alcohol dries any water and the vinegar kills any bacteria.
Ears are very sensitive to changes in swim locations (lakes, different pools, etc). We want our swimmers to stay healthy!
