Please only set up in our designated team area or on the field.   Every team is assigned a team area in the hallways where the school PA system can be easily heard. The campus will be open for set-up at 5pm on Friday. PLEASE RESPECT THAT SUMMER SCHOOL IS TAKING PLACE ON CAMPUS AND WE CANNOT ALLOW SETUP BEFORE. NOTE: If tents, chairs or other personal belongings are left overnight, Pleasant Hill Dolfins Swim Team and other affiliated agencies are not responsible for lost or stolen items. Summer school starts again first thing Monday morning so please be a good neighbor by picking up your trash and placing it in appropriate receptacle locations. Thank you for your cooperation.

The last call is usually 20-30 minutes before the event.   Be sure to listen for Clerk announcements over the PA system or on the twitter feed.  The area in Clerk of the Course and immediately around the pool is a secure area – only competing swimmers, coaches and officials will be allowed in this area.
