Meet Director's Notes

  • Please make note that Saturday  morning’s AM session has been pushed back to a 7:30  warm up/8:30 start.  Doors will not open until 7:00 am, and parents may not be able to get in the gate until 6:30  at the earliest that morning.  This is the only session with a changed timeline, all others will be as written in the original meet info. 
  • Reminder tor parents and swimmers to come in the Northgate both days.  There are a lot of other things going on at the Academy this same weekend so please build in an extra few minutes to get through the gate. Unless the gate is on free-flow, there will be a 100% ID check going on, so all adult passengers will have to show ID as well as the driver.  DOD cardholders and active duty military can come in the Southgate, if you prefer. 
  • Each day,spectators, coaches, and athletes need to enter the pool from the north side of the Cadet Gymnasium, from the Terrazzo facing out onto the ballfields.  A map is attached here with details for parking etc.  Also, food is not allowed in the Gym, although there will be concessions available each day.
