On behalf of the entire Montclair Seahawks Swim Team, I would like to welcome your team to our pool at the Montclair Country Club. The club is located at 16500 Edgewood Drive in Montclair (Dumfries). The pool has six lanes and plenty of room to cheer on swimmers!
Please set up your tents in the roped off area in the parking lot. The Montclair Country Club does have a private golf course and part of the parking lot will be blocked off to save parking for golfers. There should be plenty of parking in the main lot, in the tennis parking lot across the street and on Edgewood Drive - please respect our neighbors on Edgewood drive and the neighboring streets as you arrive and leave.
Our concessions team will be very busy to make sure there is plenty of coffee and donuts starting at 6:00 AM.
