  • As you know, the high school pool has starting blocks.  Most swimmers will use the blocks, but they also have the option of not using them.
  • We ask everyone’s help in making sure the grounds and locker rooms are clean when we leave.  We did a good job of this last weekend.
  • If you can’t come to the meet at the last minute, please text me at (301) 471-7395.  I don’t check emails once I’m at the meet, and it helps me to know if people are not coming.
