Extra notes

At 1 pm the pool opens to the public for swimming in the shallow end and baby pool. Play nice with others. Secure valuables. Hot and humid weather is expected.

The city wants water polo games to wrap up by 3:30 pm or sooner so that the pool patrons can use the entire facility. Closing part of the pool for water polo games has never been done before. Game times are going to start on or before the scheduled times. Team are asked to be prepared in advance of the published game time. It would be great if the teams and officials are ready and the first game could begin earlier.

Only the deep end of the pool being guarded, so players should not warm-up in the shallow end.

Bring a lawn chair. Tents can be deployed away from the pool in the grass area, not pool side.

Spectators are free. Swimmers pay the daily rate. Spectators that swim, pay the daily rate. Spectators and non-athletes are going to get a wrist band, no charge, at the pool at the gate. The wrist band can help for re-entry to the facility as patrons pay to swim or else have tags.

There is ample parking on the street throughout the park and in a lot near the volleyball courts.

Help with set-up, tear down and overall upkeep of the grounds is most welcome.

Community Clinic

Pop up, mini-clinics for youngsters and fans are expected throughout the day’s activities and experts, including a Renegade players too, can help in small group settings by explaining the game’s rules and sharing insights with visitors and first time fans — to better promote water polo.
