Understand with our unpredictable Arizona weather we need to be ready for unexpected situations training at an outdoor facility. The weather conditions are out of the coaches/staffs control. When lightning is reported, we must clear the deck.
Unless notified or listed on our team calendar, Sun Devil Divers will always have at least one coach at Mona Plummer Aquatic Center regardless of weather conditions. It is ultimately your decision to attend practice or not when you feel weather could cancel practice.
Mona Plummer Aquatic Center - Lightning Policy
"In the event lightning is observed or reported, the pool and pool deck will be evacuated immediately. Once lightning has been observed or reported and the deck has been cleared, the area will remain cleared until 30 minutes have passed since the last observed or reported lightning strike. Once the All-Clear has been given, patrons may re-enter the pool area. Lifeguards and facility manager have final say on when the pool will be evacuated and when re-entry will be permitted."
What happens when we have to clear the deck?
If there is availability in the room under the west end bleachers (Pitchfork Room), divers and coaches will move there to continue practice if time permits. Parents will need to meet in the lobby.
What happens when we have to evacuate the entire facility?
If weather is so bad they need to close the entire facility...we will send texts/calls to pick your child up while meeting in the lobby.
Will I get a refund?
Be aware that there are No Refunds or Make Up Lessons offered when practices are canceled due to weather conditions or other ASU functions.
