THE BLAKE SCHOOL ENTRANCE PROCEDURES

The pool entrance has changed this year. There is NO entrance to the pool on the football/ice arena side of the campus.

All swimmers/parents should use the main entrance to The Blake School via Blake Road or the bus entrance on Excelsior Blvd. Drive up the road, tennis courts will be on your right, and the Middle School entrance is at the very end of the road with a circle drop-off. This is the only entrance into the building for the pool that we will use. You can use the parking lot on the left of the circle drop-off area if you are staying.

All visitors will enter through the Middle School entrance and go through the security doors. These doors are always locked. As this is all new for us, a coach will be at the Middle School entrance early and will wait for swimmers to arrive. Please try and arrive on time so practice can begin on time as well.

The new entrance through the middle school is fairly simple.

  1. Enter Blake Middle School entrance
  2. Walk down the hallway to the stairs, go up the stairs
  3. Cross through the cafeteria, go down the stairs
  4. Arrive at the pool

 There is a viewing area that parents can use. Ask a coach for those specifics if you are not able to find the way upstairs.

Procedures and Rules for Swimmers and Parents
at Edinborough Park and Pool

Following are the appropriate procedures for the Edinborough Park facility. Please note - Edinborough does not allow any child of any age to be in the park unless they have paid the park fee and are accompanied by a parent/adult. The Edina Swim Club is renting the swimming pool only - NOT the free use of the park play structures.
  1. Enter the building, check in your swimmer at the customer service desk on the appropriate roster. Walk past the food window and continue to the security door past the rest rooms ~ at the entrance closest to the Track. This will allow better access control for the facility management. You do not need to pay the park entrance fee if you are attending the Gators practice.
  2. For liability and security reasons, doors may not be propped open.
  3. Coaches and swimmers should be the only people on deck during practice.
  4. All backpacks, bags, jackets, boots must be placed on the pool deck. No Gator swimmer items or swimmer will be allowed in the locker rooms.
  5. ESC swimmers may only use the locker room if accompanied by an authorized parent/adult. ESC coaches will NOT be monitoring the locker rooms.
  6. ESC coaches will supervise swimmer departure from practice. Swimmers may not leave practice and exit the building without being accompanied by a parent or authorized adult.
  7. Parents are to use the rest rooms on the main level next to the Park office.
  8. All swimmers must be picked up 10 minutes after practice.  A Coach will remain with all swimmers until an authorized adult arrives. A late fee will be incurred for late parent arrivals. Edinborough facility rules are in effect for the park, gymnasium, pool and locker rooms at 3:30PM
  9. Only pick-up and drop-off are permitted in the cul-de-sac. Police will issue tickets.
  10. Siblings of Gator swimmers may play in the Great Hall (gym) and Adventure Peak (tree house) or any part of the lower level of the park - for a discounted fee of $3.00. Siblings will not be allowed in the park "to watch". Parents and siblings are encouraged to sit at the tables provided on the upper level of Edinborough Park.
  11. Parents and siblings may NOT sit on the scooters in the Great Hall. The scooters are intended for children who have paid the park entrance fee.
