Drop Off, Pick Up and Parking at Sonner

Laura Hubbard

Dear RSA Families:

As we begin the 2021-2022  swim year, here are some reminders about pick up, drop off and parking for new and returning families. 

Please note there is one entrance and one exit from the Sonner driveway. Traffic flows in one direction. When turning off Jones Franklin Road, please enter at the first driveway access point. The second driveway access point is the exit. Please do not turn around in the parking lot and exit through the entrance.

For drop off and pick up, 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 horseshoe, 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 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.

Parking is available in the RSA parking lot anytime we are open. Our neighbor across from our parking lot also offers access to his parking lot during specific hours. Please be mindful of the following parking guidelines:

  • RSA families are allowed to park in the Sonner/RSA parking lot anytime. A vehicle tag must be displayed if parking in a handicapped designated space. No parking is allowed on the fire pad (the large area to the left of the instructional pool) at any time.
  • On weekdays, RSA families are allowed to park in the neighboring office building parking lot (the lot across from our parking lot) ONLY after 5:30pm. Parking is NOT allowed in reserved spaces or handicapped designated spaces in the neighboring lot at any time.
  • On weekends, RSA families are allowed to park in the neighboring office building parking lot (the lot across from our parking lot) anytime. However, parking is NOT allowed in reserved spaces or handicapped designated spaces in the neighboring lot at any time.
  • Pets are not allowed in the parking lot at Sonner or in our neighbor’s parking lot at any time unless they are inside vehicles.
  • Please note that towing will be enforced for any vehicles parked in our neighbor’s lot outside the designated timeframes.
  • Parking is not allowed at the neighboring townhomes.
  • Additional parking is allowed at the office building one entrance down on Jones Franklin Road (on the right when traveling toward the 440 intersection). There is a path from the office building to our neighbor’s parking lot for ease in accessing our facility.

Thank you for your cooperation. If you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact me at [email protected].
