(Divide the number of seconds by 5) The NLSI (National Lightning and Safety Institute) recommends the 30/30 rule which is suspend activities at an F/B of 30 (6 miles), or when first hearing thunder! HEAR IT — CLEAR IT!!! All patrons will be cleared from the pool as soon as thunder or lightning is seen or heard. Patrons will be asked to exit to their car or to the locker room for safety. This is for your safety!!! No one will be allowed back in the water until 30 minutes have elapsed with out any additional sightings. If inclement weather persists, the facility will close for the remainder of the day. If you have been at the facility less than 1½ hours, you will receive a rain check.

SWIM

AND DIVE TEAM The city of Olathe, Recreation Division is again sponsoring the “Olathe Cyclones.” The swim team was organized for the purpose of promoting a summer youth recreation team in Olathe. There will also be a pre-competitive level, not intended to teach children to swim, but to develop their strokes and endurance to prepare them for competition. The team belongs to the Johnson County Swim and Dive League and competes in both competitive and pre-competitive meets with other cities in the league. Team members can participate in both diving and swimming, if desired. Parent Meeting: will be held on Monday May 14th from 5:307:00pm. This is your opportunity to order team suits, goggles, caps and parent T-shirts. The meeting will be held at California Trail Junior High. Requirements: Swimmers & divers will compete at their age level. Age groups will be determined by the participant’s age as of June 1, 2012. Participants must be 18 years or younger to be eligible. Swimmers should be able to swim 25 yards unassisted prior to the start of the season. Divers should not be afraid of diving, should be able to enter the water head first, and need to progress to at least 3 competitive dives in order to compete. Pre-competitive: Swimmers 11 & under may participate at a pre-competitive level. This is not intended to teach children to swim, but is to develop their strokes and endurance to prepare them for competition. Advancement to the competitive level will

PAGE 20

be the decision of the coaches. Pre-competitive swimmers will swim 25-yard events in the pre-competitive meets. In competitive meets, events are 50 meters. Swimmers who know only one or two strokes, and/or who can swim only 25 yards without stopping, will most likely be pre-competitive swimmers. Please indicate pre-competitive on enrollment form if your child is at this level. If unsure, please indicate so on the enrollment form. Eligibility: Individuals may participate on more than one competitive team during the summer league season. USA League swimmers may swim if they are participating in a year-round program during the summer season. Individuals must compete for the city in which they reside if the city has a member team. An exception may be made if the individual lives closer to a neighboring city’s pool. Other cities with teams participating in the Johnson County Swim & Dive League are Fairway, Lenexa, Merriam, Overland Park, Prairie Village, Roeland Park, and Shawnee. Parent Volunteers: Every family is expected to help at swim meets during the season. It takes many volunteers to make a swim meet successful. Volunteer sign-up sheets will be at the pool each week. Enrollment: It begins immediately by mail, and will continue until age-group limits are reached. Refunds: If a refund is requested prior to the end of the first week, a $15 administrative fee will be assessed. After the first week, there will be no refunds. All refunds must be requested in writing. Season Begins May 28- July 15 - Swim & Dive Team Fees Swim or Dive Only

It is the participant’s responsibility to arrive at the first class as indicated in the description. 3. If your first program choice is not available, you will be notified of any available options. 4. You will be placed on a waiting list, if the activity is full. We will call you, if an activity opening becomes available. 5. All registrations are subject to availability and space is limited for all activities. The last date to enroll is listed as the deadline date. 6. Olathe Parks and Recreation reserves the right to consoli-

date classes and change locations to ensure that an activity will meet the minimum enrollment. 7. If the registrant mails an enrollment form that arrives prior to the first date of enrollment, the registration will be processed in random order with the mail that arrives on the first day of registration. METHOD OF PAYMENT: For your convenience, we accept cash, personal checks, cashier checks, money orders, Visa or MasterCard. Please include credit card number and expiration date. Please do not send cash through the mail. RETURNED CHECK POLICY: A $20.00 service charge will be made for any check returned by the bank. The registration will become null and void, if payment for the insufficient check is not made within 24 hours after being notified by registration personnel. REJECTED CREDIT CARD POLICY: Registrations become null and void immediately whenever a credit card payment is rejected. Registration personnel will contact the participant as soon as possible. Payment must be made immediately to continue to be registered for the activity. REFUND POLICY: Refunds will be granted for the following reasons: 1. When an activity has insufficient registrations and must be cancelled. 2. To any registrant who is restricted from participation due to a change in the activity location, date or time. 3. To any registrant who is restricted from participating due to an illness, as long as the request is made before no more than two activity meetings have been completed and when a doctor’s excuse is presented. A prorated amount will be issued or transferred, if the activity has already started. 4. To any registrant without reason, so long as the request is made at least 10 working days prior to the 1st day of the program. All refunds (or transfers) initiated by the participant will be subject to a 5% service charge with a $5.00 minimum and a $15.00 maximum to be retained by the department. Please allow up to 20 days for the city to process refunds. CANCELLATIONS: When enrollment does not meet the class minimum, Olathe Parks and Recreation reserves the right to cancel activities. To help avoid cancellation of classes, register at your earliest convenience. All class and activity fees, times, dates and locations are subject to change, if the scheduled facility becomes unavailable or if there was an error. WAITLIST POLICY: Wait list entries can be made for up to three classes per program session. In the event of an opening, a staff member will contact individuals on the waiting list to fill the opening. If an individual accepts enrollment from the wait list, his/her name will be removed from all other wait lists in the associated program session. Patrons cannot be enrolled in a program and be on a wait list for another section of the same program.
