Winter Weather Policy
In the event of winter weather, practice and/or meets will be canceled. South DM Swimming will post something on the website, send an email, post on Facebook, ect if this were to occur. We typically use the guidelines set by the Des Moines Public School District. For example: if DMPS cancels school or evening activities, we will not host practice.

Shared Facility Conflicts
SDMS shares a facility with Rails Swimming (high school and middle school swimmers from Carlisle, Norwalk and the southside of Des Moines). Unfortunately, this means there are occasional schedule conflicts requiring us to cancel practice. To help our families be aware of these schedule changes, we post a monthly “Daily Schedule” where practices, meets and any cancelations are listed. Simply access all of these posts from the home page under News & Info or by clicking on the Daily Schedule button above.
