Do not park in yellow-curb marked areas on public streets and in our parking lot as these represent fire lanes. Also, be mindful of the proper distance cars must park from an intersection. The Manassas City Parking Enforcement tends to patrol our area when we host large meets.
The parking lot and grassy area in front of the pool is available for team set-up. Limited shade is available. Teams are strongly encouraged to sit together in the designated areas and to provide their own shade tents. Please consult the map for your team’s assigned area.
Due to the large number of swimmers and families, no unauthorized persons will be allowed on the deck between the Clerk of Course area and the start end of the pool.
