We will be walking the kids through the normal flow of Clerk of Course, swimming, then exiting the building at City Meet. We will be working to ensure all kids make it to CoC, but please be aware and listen to which events are being called. Coaches will be around to help and talk to kids before and/or after their races. Team Tent Our tent is in the same spot as last year, on the street in between the Allan Jones pool and the large hill leading to the SAC pool on UT Drive. Please make sure you are staying under our tent so we know where all swimmers are, and to stay cool in the summer heat!! Bring chairs, blankets, or anything else to sit/ camp out on.
GKAISA will be utilizing a radio station (88.1 FM) to call for events to tell swimmers to head to the clerk of course. Bring a battery operated radio (if you have one!) They will also have a Twitter, but it isn't as timely as the radio.
Parking has changed from last year. You will be allowed to park in the garage across from Allan Jones Intercollegiate Aquatic Center. The parking fee for the garage is $5 per vehicle upon entry. If you leave and come back, you must pay the fee each time. These fees go to UT, not GKAISA. Free parking will be available at the Metron/Kingston Building next to Tyson Park (2309 Kingston Pike). It is approximately a 1 mile walk, and there is no shuttle offered this year.Please do not hesitate to ask any questions you may have. Get excited, GO GREEN MEADOW
