Frank Brown Park Policy Updates!
We will continue our Locker Room policy for the swimmers at Frank Brown Park through August 9.  Swimmers may not change or shower in the locker room and may only enter to use the restroom (one at a time).  We will also continue the policy of not sharing swim equipment through August 9

Starting July 6, parents will be allowed to enter the facility during PCST practices provided they sign in at the front desk and must sit in the PCST designated pavillion (where the cubbies for bag storage are).  Basic social distancing guidelines are still strongly recommended.  Frank Brown really wants to be able to get parents back inside if you wish to be there as they transition to new schedules and rules in July.  What they do want to stress however is that they do not want situations where a large group of family members come in during practice and are running around through the grass, etc...  Please participate in those activities outside the main gate.
