Inclement Weather Policy

Franklin Athletic Club has developed the following inclement weather / emergency outdoor pool closing polices out of concern for the safety of our members, program participants, guests, and staff. Please check our Facebook page @FranklinClubSouthfield or call (248)352-8000 in advance to confirm status of classes and the pool on days that the area is experiencing inclement weather. Franklin Athletic Club reserves the right to cancel classes and close the pool facilities at any time for safety reasons.


In the event of inclement weather decisions will be made periodically through the day, see below.


  • If weather is an issue early in the morning the status of the outdoor pool and its programs will be posted by 6:00am

  • If the pool is closed prior to opening at 7:00 AM, it will remain closed until at least 9:30AM

  • Franklin Athletic club will re-evaluate the weather conditions every 2-3 hours and post any updates of openings and closings.

  • A final decision will be posted at 6:00 PM to indicate if the pool will be closed for the rest of the evening, once that decision is made it is final."

Entry will not be permitted when pool is closed under any circumstances.
