Dear PALM Parents and Swimmers,
Coach Heath has recently received complaints from both USC and Harbison facilities regarding our swim team, and your immediate action is needed please:
NO PARENTS ALLOWED ON POOL DECKS
Both facilities require, and have requested, that all parents be off the pool decks during swim team practices.
- USC parents should view practices from the upstairs observation stands.
- Harbison parents should be off the lounge
chairs and off the pool deck, and should view practice from
upstairs, behind the glass observation area.
NOTE: Parents at both facilities may escort their children onto the pool deck to their coaches before practice, and may retrieve their children from the pool deck after practice, but during practice parents must remain in the observation areas.
ENTER AND EXIT THE BUILDINGS AT THE FRONT
Both facilities have entry and exit requirements for our swim team.
- USC parents and swimmers must enter AND exit at the front door of the Blatt PE Center, and PALM parents must stop and sign in at the front desk. Not stopping to sign-in is resulting in complaints from USC, and can result in a parent being asked to leave the building. Please do not exit the building through the side door. The alarm goes off, and cameras have shown that some of our parents and swimmers are exiting through those doors - Do not exit through the side door!
- Harbison parents and swimmers must enter and exit the facility through the front door; our team is not allowed to use the side/back door.
Please be sure that everyone (babysitter, grandparent, mom, dad, etc) who is responsible for taking your child/children to swim practice is aware of the above requirements.
Thank you for your help in complying with, and keeping in good standing with the facilities we rent from and are privileged to be allowed to use for PALM practices.
Coach Jan Thompson
PALM Team Manager
