City Meet News and Notes for Thursday (10-Under)
Team Reps and Head Coaches,
It is hard to believe that City Meet starts tomorrow! Please share the following with your teams:
Parking is available in the garage across from the Aquatic Center for $5 per car (cash only). There are no “in and out” privileges. Please advise parents that they will have to pay each time they enter.
Heat Sheets will be for sale at the ticket window at a cost of $10 each (cash only).
Drinks for Hospitality
If your team is bringing drinks for hospitality (requirement of 36 cans per team if you did not pay the $25), you may drop them off today before 6:00 pm or tomorrow morning, beginning at 10:00 am. Be sure that you get checked off the list.
We will be broadcasting City Meet announcements on 88.1 FM. Be sure that your team has a radio in your tent.
Minor Athlete Protection Policy
The Minor Athlete Abuse Prevention Program (MAAPP) went into effect June 23. UT’s Allan Jones Aquatic Center enforces this policy. At all times during City Meet, the UT team locker rooms will be used for athletes, coaches, workers and officials ages 18-up. The visiting locker rooms will be used for athletes under 18 years of age. There will be signs posted during the meet to direct people.
Also, the diving well at Allan Jones Aquatic Center will be closed on Thursday and Saturday of City Meet. We have been requested to advise teams that absolutely no one will be allowed in the diving well on these dates (including the winning teams following the awards presentation). With the Junior National Diving Championships beginning on Sunday, the staff will immediately begin preparing for them as soon as our last event is concluded. Please make your staffs, swimmers and parents aware and ask them to be respectful of the staff and facility as they prepare for this exciting event.
