Depending on numbers at the meet, we may move seating to the gym area. There is NOc amping in the hallways at the Carroll REC Center.

NOTE: There is extensive remodeling going on at the REC right now. The biggest issue is the door to the pool area is currently closed. The door. NOT the pool. Parents will enter the pool thru the locker rooms. They are marked! 

To cut back on congestion, we are entering the swimmers from the back room. And they will exit that way as well. This will be an easy access to and from the pool to the gym.  I am asking the swimmers to use the bathrooms in the hallway. There are two men and two women bathrooms in the hallways.
