OCCC'S entrance has changed
The main entrance most teams are familiar with at OCCC -- located on the west end and labeled as AC 1 -- will now be for exiting only. Now, participants and spectators are asked to enter through the SSC 2 entrance, which is located just east of AC 1. Once inside the doors, you'll go down the stairs, through the hallway with the classrooms and follow the signs to the Aquatic Center entrance, which will be located on the scoreboard end of the pool. Athletes and coaches may then proceed on deck; all spectators may go upstairs for general seating. On the south side of the OCCC Aquatic Center, there is some parking available in lots F and G, which will lead you to the WC (Wellness Center) Entry 2. Entrance through this area leads you on deck on the opposite side of the pool. As always, please take care not to park in an Faculty or otherwise Restricted parking spaces, as you will be ticketed by OCCC.
