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. 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 a practice: FINS will allow a single scheduled makeup swim per week at a select amount of specifically designated times set aside 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 fall program swim dates after the scheduled completion of fall programming on November 1st. 

Swimmers will be allowed a maximum of one makeup swim for any cancelled sessions during a single week. Swimmers registered in multiple swim times per week will only have access to a single 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, you will only be granted a single makeup opportunity. No exceptions will be made to this policy. In the occurrence of a prolonged weather related emergency or facility related issue that results in the closure of the FINS Outdoor facility for a prolonged period of time, causing a permanent stoppage of outdoor FINS programming – withdrawal requests will not be eligible for a refund of any kind. In this instance FINS will reserve the right to offer a credit to families for any affected programming.”
