DeNunzio Pool:

When coming to the DeNunzio pool – please park at Lot 21 ( see Campus Map).

We as a club are responsible for ensuring all of our participants and parents follow the rules of Princeton University and Princeton Township, including the requirement of keeping the fire lane clear.

Parking in the front circle near DeNunzio Pool is ABSOLUTELY PROHIBITED. If you park there – it creates not only a fire code violation, but a safety hazard for those parents who are trying to drop off/pick up their children.  Even if it is 10PM and nobody seems to care – please refrain from leaving your cars parked in front of DeNunzio while coming inside.   

If violations will continue to happen – the pool management will have to hire a parking attendant during all practices in order to keep compliance with the fire code – and the charge for parking attendant ($65 per hour) will be passed onto the groups responsible. Remember: Dropping off and picking up children is permissible, but parking a vehicle in the circle is not.

Thank you for your cooperation.

Dillon Gymnasium Pool:

Parents are NOT permitted to drop off players at the front door to the Dillon Gym.

No personal vehicles are permitted past the guard shack at any time.  Parents may drop off in front of Baker Rink (see Campus Map).

If parents need to park, they may park in the parking garage after hours (after 5pm) or on weekends.  Any parking prior to 5pm would need to be in Lot 23.  The shuttle bus may be taken at any time if they are running.

AGAIN, MOST IMPORTANTLY, DO NOT ATTEMPT TO DRIVE PAST THE GUARD SHACK. This causes unnecessary traffic congestion as well as safety issues when attempting to turn around.
