As you enter the gate, our team will walk through the home team area to set-up on the far side of the pool deck close to the diving board. We will have the tables and deck area at that end of the pool (opposite the starting blocks). Please bring tents and extra chairs because the pool will run out of seating.  

Parents keep a watchful eye on your kids and remember they should stay with a parent or guardian until their kid pusher calls them.

Make sure to bring a water bottle for your swimmer. Remind your swimmer to remove their cap after they swim so they can stay cool .

Concessions: We will have The Wondering Moose and Sunset Slushy providing food and treats. We will also have Chick-fil-a and other sweet treats for sale. Cash only please.

Outside food and drinks as well as coolers ARE permitted in the outdoor pool area. Please no glass bottles or containers of any kind.  No alcohol at TSA events, we can be disqualified if someone is found with alcohol on the property.
