It has been brought to our attention that some people have been writing on the bottom of the pool and on the walls. After speaking with the college director, please understand that any athlete caught doing this will have serious consequences. If caught or found guilty of marking up the facility you will be immediately removed from the team, reported to the college where they then ban you from the facility and because it is a form of vandalism, a police report will be made and a fine to follow for the damages caused. We are lucky to have the facility that we do and we would like to keep it in great shape.
