Del Norte Dolphin home meets are held at the beautiful Del Norte Club featuring fitness, swimming, and tennis facilities with a country club like setting and a welcoming family atmosphere. We do have a spa, children's pool, and an additional indoor pool that are off limits at all times to all participants in the swim meet. This will be strictly enforced.
We feature a 5 lane pool and score the first 2 heats as if it was a 10 lane pool. We alternate who gets the odd lane by heat. We typically hold 2 heats in all individual events and add heats for the short events to accommodate additional swimmers. The 100 IM and 100 Freestyle events are limited to 2 heats only. We only run a single heat for all relays to accommodate two relays from each team.
Del Norte Dolphins check-in done by 7 am. Del Norte Dolphins warm up 7:15- 7:45. Visiting team warm up from 7:45-8:15. We start the meet at 8:30 sharp! Even though our pool is only 5 lanes, we take great pride in running a fast and efficient meet!
We have a large open grass area with designated team areas so swimmers can sit with their teammates. Below is a picture showing the rough boundaries of the home team area and visiting team area.
During the meet, we host a snack bar which includes a pancake & sausage breakfast and breakfast burritos in the morning and BBQ lunch items starting around 10:30. Yummy!!
