Thank you for a great 2017 season!!!!

If you didn't get some of your ribbons from this season, the file box will be in the WJC Pool Office until August 13th.


GCSL policy states that coaches from both teams, the meet referee and Board President will make the final decision to cancel the diving and/or swimming meet. They will try to reschedule the unfinished portion of the meet if environmental conditions are considered dangerous. The referee will ensure adherence to Red Cross guidelines that require the pool and pool deck to be cleared for 30 minutes from the last thunder and/or lightning strike. When thunder and/or lightning delays a meet, all attempts will be made to resume the meet. Be prepared to wait up to 1 hour for restart.

When thunder and/or lightning occurs, instructions will be communicated by our team text messaging service as well as announcements by the officials.  You will then be contacted via text message with updates as to the status of the meet.  Please DO NOT leave the meet until a coach or team text message tells you to do so.  The safety of the teams and patrons is a top priority.
