Kings Charger at AshCreek (the details)
The Ashcreek Crocs welcome the Kings Charter Tidal Waves Wednesday, June 15th. The meet will begin at 6:00 p.m. The rain date will be Thursday, June 16th.
Location: Our pool is located at 10854 Linderwood Dr., Mechanicsville, VA 23116.
Pool Specifics: Our pool is measured in meters and has 6 lanes. The start end of our pool is about 4.5 feet deep and the turn end of our pool is about 3.5 feet deep. This means that swimmers can dive in the start end, but 2nd and 4th legs of 8 and under relays will need to start in the water.
Parking: Our team reserves the parking lot for the visiting team. If additional parking is required, families may park along the main road as long as they don’t block intersections or driveways.
Seating: Seating for the away team is located on the right side of the pool closest to the parking lot. You may also use half of the awning at the far end. Please bring deck chairs for your use. Please inform your swimmers and parents that the clubhouse and playground area are off limits during the swim meet.
Check-In: Please have your team begin check-in no earlier than 4:30 pm. Check-in must be completed by 5:30 pm. A table will be set up outside the pool for your check-in.
Warm-ups: KC team will warm up from 5:15-5:35. Ashcreek’s warm-ups will be from 4:50-5:10.
Concessions: The concessions are located outside of the fence area just past the bathrooms on the left and will be serving food beginning at 5:15 and will continue to sell until approximately 9:00. Our concession will be selling hamburgers, hot dogs, barbecue, snacks, candy and drinks. Kona Ice will be located in the circle drive in front of the clubhouse.
Weather: Per GRAL guidelines if there is a sighting of lightning or hearing of thunder, all participants must clear the pool deck and wait in the parking lot or their cars.
