Swimmers are encouraged to set up on deck in the bleachers under the blue shade structure. Bottled water will not be available for coaches or for sale. There are "Water Monster" areas available to refill your water bottles on deck.
Weather, etc: The weather is predicted to be HOT with a slight chance of rain/storms. That being said, prepare for the worst! Previous meets at this facility endured multiple pool closures, flooding in the picnic areas, and more. Bring extra towels, sunscreen, food, etc. in anticipation of weather delays.
Athlete education: This meet will be long (4 days), with many swims (up to 12 splashes) over the course of Prelims and Finals. With weather being hot, and the competition being extended, it is important to take care of your bodies! Proper warm-up, warm-down, and hydration are necessary to perform at the highest level. Be aware of the timeline posted below, and how much time you have between races. Take care of your body and your body will take care of you! Be sure also to rest between sessions. You should have at least 4 hours between Prelims and Finals to eat, sleep, and recover.
