Fall practice schedule posted

As the new school year and swim season approaches, I wanted to share the arrangements that Bill has made for our Fall practice.  As with prior years, Robert’s Pool continues on with its swimming lesson program during the month of September.  So, we still have limited use of Robert’s pool until the beginning of October.  We’ll return to Lion’s Pool in Dimond Park Monday thru Thursdays, with a schedule that allows for minimal overlap between the Sharks and Minnows by allowing for a “week day off”, coupled with a Saturday practice for the Sharks and Minnows on the weekend’s we don’t have a swim meet.  Things get much simpler starting October 8th when we have full access to Robert’s Pool.
Practice resumes on Tuesday, September 3rd (no practice on Labor Day) with the following schedule thru September 27th….actually the Minnows start on Wednesday, 9/4.

In case you’ve forgotten or are new to the team, here are the driving instructions to Lion’s Pool:
Driving Directions to Lions Pool:
Lions Pool is located in Dimond Park, 3860 Hanly Road, Oakland 94602. There are two ways to arrive at the park, depending on if you are dropping off swimmers or parking your car. 
 
Drop Off:  If you are dropping off swimmers and would like to watch them as they walk to the pool, but in the comfort of your car, the directions are as follows:
From Montclair, take Park Blvd downhill toward the Glenview District.  Turn left on Wellington Street.  Keep going until the street meets the park.  There is limited parking along Wellington as it turns west at the park, and also street parking.  Good view of the pool area. 
Parking Lot:  If you plan to park and go down to the pool with your swimmer, follow these directions: 
From Montclair, take Park Blvd downhill toward the Glenview District.  Turn left on El Centro Ave. Continue on El Centro until Hanly Road, right on Hanly.  Continue on Hanly until it turns into a parking lot.  Take the stairs down to the pool.
