One athlete per club will be asked to hold the sign so the announcer can see it as the team passes. The announcer will also be provided a list of teams in line-up order. The parade route will be determined and communicated to athletes prior to the start of the parade.

Volunteers will organize the athletes; please have athletes in track-suites/warm-ups and wearing deck shoes at least thirty minutes prior to the start of the parade.

Any athletes competing in final events should report immediately at the close of competition for awards at the staging area under the dive towers.

During awards and parades, the competition area of the pool is closed. If an awards session precedes a competitive event, the practice areas may be used for quiet laps and warm-up.

Lost and Found

A lost and found area will be maintained in the lifeguard office. Please check there if you lose anything at the event.

Clean-Up

Please help keep the facility clean and safe throughout the competition. As you leave each day, check your area for left-behind belongings and pick-up all trash.
