  Just a reminder that at all pools that STAR uses, parents are welcome to stay and watch their children practice but the parents must stay off the pool deck. USA Swimming insurance is void if, when an accident occurs, there is someone on deck who is not covered by USA Swimming insurance.  Parents are not covered by this insurance. For the safety and peace of mind for all. please sit in the stands at Hamline, stay behind the benches at Oxford and sit in the cabanas at Highland. Thank you STAR
