Matt Casto Memorial Meet 2019

LOCATION



Hoos Pool, Sacramento City College
3835 Freeport Blvd
Sacramento, CA 95822


PARKING

Parking is $2/day. You may park in the parking structure or in the student lot behind the parking structure. DO NOT PARK in the staff lot right outside the pool. Do NOT park near construction as well. They’re RUTHLESS with the tickets.


SAFE AREAS FOR POPUP TENTS

The main staging area for families is in the SOUTH GYM. It can get busy in there though, so we understand that it may become necessary to set up tents outside. When doing so, it’s important that we keep in mind construction areas and keeping fire lanes open as we set up popup tents and family staging areas. Here is a map of safe areas around the pool and gym area. GREEN areas are safe, while areas marked with RED need to remain clear.

The South Gym will be open and warm(ish). Space will be first-come first-serve, so get there early. You must bring your own chairs and floor mats for the South Gym. We will be projecting events and heats on the all in the gym so you can keep up with the action in the main pool area.

YOU CANNOT SET UP on the bleachers in the pool area. Bleachers are for spectating only and anyone setting up for long durations of time will be asked to leave.

Restrooms are available in the South Gym area. Locker rooms and restroom facilities in the Pool Building are reserved for athletes, coaches, and meet officials per USA Swimming Safe Sport rules.


WEATHER

According to our friends at wunderground.com the forecast looks a bit gnarly Friday and Saturday. Days will start in the low 50s Friday and Saturday with a blast of cold air on Sunday with a low temp in the high 30s. Highs will struggle to reach 60, so pack warmly and come early. Real estate in the south gym will be hard to come by.
