HOLIDAYS & BAD WEATHER POLICIES

Public Holidays

No coached sessions will be scheduled on public holidays unless otherwise announced by the coaches or published on our schedule.


Bad Weather

Those signed up to any session that is affected by bad weather will be sent an email to announce any changes.  For morning sessions, if in doubt, please call or message the Coach.  

In general, the following practices will be adhered to.  If in doubt, please use your best judgement:

Heavy Rain  Scheduled sessions will go ahead in rain.  Unless there is a government warning such as a black rain storm warning prohibiting us from running a session, it will be safe to assume the session will take place. 

Thunder and Lightning.  Sessions may still go ahead if a thunderstorm warning is in force and / or lightning is a safe distance away prior to the start of a session.  The HKO issues territory wide blanket warnings, many of which have no effect on where we will be swimming.  Please use your best judgement if you are not able to contact the Coach.

Typhoon 8 and Black Storm Warnings. All sessions will be cancelled. Coached sessions will only resume if the signals are lowered 3 hours prior to the scheduled start of the session.
