Severe Weather Policy
Being the time of year that swim season occurs, there is always a chance of a pop-up thunderstorm. If you have been with swim team long, you know it is always on a Thursday. The referee or the host pool lifeguard shall make the decision to stop or delay the meet due to severe weather. Most storms quickly pass and it is always our hope to complete a swim meet so that all swimmers have equal opportunity to get their best times. Please plan to arrive on time so that we can begin as soon as possible.
The National Lightning Safety Institute recommends pool activities should remain suspended until thirty minutes after the last thunder is heard.
The safety of the swimmer, however, is always our first priority!
The team uses as many forms of communication as possible (website, email, text, social media, etc.). The may result in parents receiving multiple notifications. This is unavoidable. Please be patient with anyone who attempts to notify you of schedule changes as they are only trying to help you and your swimmer have a positive experience.
KWPR's primary methods of communication are e-mail and the team website, KWPR Barracudas. The website includes news, events, swimmer sign-up, and volunteer job sign-ups. The site is updated regularly. Please check for new and updated information.
You may also access your swimmer’s best times on this web site. Once logging on, Go to My Account and then click on your child’s name to see their Best times. Click on the event to see their history. Click the following link to review all SAIL results at :https://greenvillejournal.com/sail/
E-mails will be sent to inform parents/guardians and swimmers of upcoming events, such as swim meets, team social events, volunteer events, etc. Be sure to keep your e-mail address current on the website. If you need help updating it, please see the Contact Us link on the website.
KWPR encourages open communication. Please feel free to email coaches or board members.
