    • This seating/tent area is a little ways away from the pool.  We do have loud speakers out to it as well as a board showing event/heat, but swimmers and their families are encouraged to LISTEN CLOSELY for event numbers so they don't miss their races!
    • Additionally, signs will show entrance paths to the pool.  Please remind your team (as we continue to remind ours) that parents and other spectators should not be behind the blocks.
    • Absolutely NO DOGS should be brought to the swim meet.  DOGS are not allowed at REDWOOD High School--even the cute, well behaved ones.
    • Please do not enter the “Farm” area.  We have roped off a walkway next to the pool for SWIMMERS ONLY.  However, 8 & Under swimmers may be accompanied by an adult if needed. 
    • Tidalwaves’ snack bar will be open from 10:00 am thru the conclusion of the meet.  We are known for our delicious lunch items of rainbow quinoa salad, chicken Caesar salad, fresh burgers, chicken sandwiches, hot dogs, chicken apple sausages, quesadillas, fresh guacamole and many new breakfast items as well including waffles, fruit cups and yogurt parfaits, as well as donuts!  Please come and enjoy!
  • Address:  Redwood High School
