Hey Gator Swimmers-
I have a few reminders for the meet this Saturday. We will be swimming at the Applewood Athletic Club located at 13330 W. 20th Ave.
The meet will start at 7 am, but the Gators are expected to be ready to get in the pool (i.e. swim suits, goggles, and caps on) at 6:10 am.
Parking is a little tricky. For those of you who have been to the pool before, you know what I’m talking about. The parking lot is very small and you will most likely have to park on the street. The best place to park, in order to avoid a towing fee, is under the I-70 overpass. If there is no parking under the overpass and you have to park on the street, make sure there are no illegal parking signs posted.
The weather looks great for the weekend and I’m hoping we won’t have any wind problems at this meet! The wind was not very much fun last week.
Make sure you eat a healthy meal the night before the meet and the morning of the meet so you can use all your energy to swim fast. Most importantly make sure you hydrate like never before. The sun zaps out your energy and a way too stay energized is by drinking lots of healthy fluids.
If you have any questions about the meet or need directions, don’t hesitate to call or come visit me at the pool because I’m there a lot!
