RSA Athlete Pickup and Dropoff Procedures at Sonner

Laura Hubbard

Hello RSA Families:

With the changes in practice schedules and the collapse of most subgroups, the traffic in our parking lot has increased during dropoff and pickup times. It is important to note that our driveway is a continuous movement, no passing zone. Please do not stop or park at the top of the driveway horseshow, to the side of the driveway at the fire pad or in the handicapped spaces to wait for your athletes. Stopping and waiting for your athlete causes entering traffic to back up onto Jones Franklin Road and prevents exiting for other families.

To clarify, the acceptable procedure for picking up and dropping off athletes at Sonner follows:

  • Parking in the Sonner parking lot or the parking lot across the entrance from Jones Franklin Road (weekdays after 5:00pm on the right side of the lot or on weekends only) to wait for your athlete is preferred if you do not want to drop off and leave during practice.
  • Picking up an athlete waiting at the top of the driveway horseshoe is allowed if the athlete is already waiting outside and the pickup does not impede traffic flow.
  • Stopping to unload athletes at the top of the driveway horseshoe is allowed.
  • Passing in the driveway is not allowed under any circumstances since children enter and exit from both sides of vehicles.
  • Parking in the handicapped spaces to unload or wait for athletes is not allowed unless you have a handicapped vehicle tag.

Please plan to arrive for pickup five minutes after the end of practice. This delay gives the athletes time to exit the water, grab their gear and dress to leave before you arrive for pickup and further allows for swimmers being dropped off for practice to clear the parking lot.

Thank you for your cooperation in our efforts to keep everyone safe and ensure a quick dropoff and pickup system.

Please do not hesitate to contact me if you have any questions or concerns. Have a great day.

Laura Hubbard, Director of Operations
