[4/6/21] Note from the Meet director:
 
Facility and Live Spectating Reminders
- All athletes will be health screened each day upon arriving at the meet.  Please plan accordingly as all screenings will take place prior to their warm up; so allot about 15-20min for this just in case!
- All parents will be able to come on deck during their son/daughter's swim to watch, but MUST go through the health screening while the warmup session is going on.  Once screened they will receive a wristband for the day that will give them access to come on deck to watch their son/daughter's heat.  Once their son/daughter is done swimming they will need to exit the deck and go back to the area outside of the fence where they are sitting.  All parents will also have access to watch the meet through the fence if they wish.  Additionally, we are working on having the meet live streamed for all family members at home to be able to watch as well.  More details to come next week with the link!
- Our pool is an outdoor facility with ample space around the fencing of the pool for parents to set up tents and chairs.  When setting those up please ensure that you are doing your best to maintain 10 feet of space between your tents.  The seating outside of the fence will be for all parents and athletes.
- One big change from what was sent out last week is that we will have large portable potties available for spectators.  With that said, and as noted in the meet invitation, all athletes must arrive at the pool in their racing suits as due to COVID changing in the bathrooms is prohibited.
