Inclement Weather Plan for Outdoor Pools

At the Mankato Family YMCA the safety of members, program participants, and staff is our highest priority.

Temperature related closures: 
NOAA weather app will be used by YMCA staff and City staff to monitor temperature – YMCA staff will open the Pool if temperatures are predicted to reach 70 degrees before 3pm. (If temps do not reach 70 degrees by 3pm, the facility will not open.)

Lightning or Thunder: When thunder or lightning is first noticed, outdoor pool activities will be suspended and all outdoor pools and pool decks will be evacuated until 30 minutes after the last sign of thunder or lightning.

Rain/Wind: If heavy rain or high winds causes bottom obstruction, pools will be cleared and swimming halted until the lifeguards can effectively see the bottom of the pools.
