FINS Weather Policy


Below please review the FINS outdoor programming weather policy.

The FINS outdoor facility will remain operational and all scheduled practices will be held despite rain or colder temperatures. Heavy winds, thunder, lightning, and/or severe weather warnings may result in a facility closure. Power outages, facility mechanical/chemical issues may also result in a facility closure. Extremely cold outdoor air temperatures (defined as prolonged days of below 50 degree air temp) may also result in a facility closure. The decision to close a facility will be made by the facility operator in accordance with Montgomery County public health and safety code.

In the instance of a facility closure, FINS will provide an update for all families on the FINS website. In the instance of a facility closure resulting in the cancelation of more than two practices in a single week:FINS will allow a single (1) scheduled makeup swim at specifically designated times set aside by FINS for make ups due to weather and facility related closures. Swimmers will have 14 days from the time of a cancelled practice to attend a makeup swim. After 14 days the individual makeup period will expire – No exceptions will be made.

No makeup swims will be allowed for summer program swim dates after the scheduled completion of summer programming. Swimmers registered in multiple swim times per week will only have access to a single (1) makeup swim per week, despite the occurrence of multiple weather or facility related closures during that single week. Note: If you are registered for 2 or more sessions in a week, and more than one session is cancelled due to a weather or facility related closure, only a single makeup opportunity will be granted. No exceptions will be made to this policy.
