Please pick up your swimmers within 15 minutes after a practice ends.  In general, 15 minutes should be enough time for them to rinse, change, and gather belongings from the locker rooms.  Staying later causes extra time and expense for our coaching staff (who wait with the swimmers) and the Aquatic Center staff (who must lock up afterwards), particularly during the summer months when the pool is NOT open to the public after our practices end.  Thus, if a swimmer is still at the pool at the 15-minute mark, our coaches will ask the swimmer to call a parent and then parents may be charged for the extra coach and/or staff time until a parent arrives.  (High school age swimmers are allowed to wait without a coach present, but still must exit the building within 15 minutes so Aquatic Center staff can lock up the facility.)
