Kohl family ymca at university park WEATHER CLOSING POLICY and lightning policy
- The Akron Area YMCA cancels the morning classes when the local community schools cancel their classes due to weather.
- We make every effort to hold afternoon and evening classes. Any decisions to cancel the afternoon or evening classes are made by 3:00pm. If it is not posted on Facebook or WKYC, then evening classes will go as planned.
- The YMCA building and facilities remain open [unless the weather is too treacherous]
The indoor pools and pool decks at all Akron YMCAs with the exception of Riverfront YMCA may remain open during thunderstorms. We reserve the right to close the indoor pools if severe weather is in direct vicinity and poses a significant threat. Pools will close when there is a tornado warning in direct vicinity.
The Outdoor Pool will close when there is thunder or lightning and will remain closed until 30 minutes after the last sign of thunder or lightning.
