WHERE TO SET UP TEAM AREA
We reserve the grass area behind our blocks near the small coaches shed for visiting teams. There is plenty of space to spread out on the grass and easy access to the pool. There is a wall near this area to post lane assignments and other items.
We pride ourselves on our delicious, healthy and affordable snack bar, and we will have a wide assortment of snacks and meals available throughout the meet beginning at 7am.
An important note: Please remind your swimmers and families to bring their own refillable water bottles! We have made a commitment to reduce waste by not selling bottled water and we instead have icy cold water available in large jugs to refill your own bottles. Thank you for your help in this effort!
We look forward to meeting you at the pool this Saturday. Please feel free to email us at firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions.
