2018 Lamar Tigersharks Invitational

June 16 & 17, 2018 • 9 a.m.


The Lamar TigerSharks welcome you to our facility. Our six (6) lane pool has competitive, non-turbulent lane lines. We will use the Tri-State Conference’s Colorado Electronic Timing System. The outdoor pool is in the Lamar City Park, which provides many shaded crash areas. Bleacher seating is available on the pool’s west side. We ask families to rotate through the bleachers so everyone may have an opportunity to see their favorite swimmer(s). Lawn chairs and tents are encouraged. For pedestrian safety, the north half of the road circling the pool will be closed. The entire Lamar City Park area is smoke- and alcohol-free.

Please, please, please DO NOT park on the grass around the pool.  You will be towed if you do park on the grass.  Also, no one should set up on the pool side of the road of the road south of the pool.  Because of the leak in the pool, that hill immediately south of the pool is still wet.  It will be blocked off.  There is limited parking available in the pool lot and plenty of room in the RV lot and baseball field lots immediately west and southwest of the pool.
