Backstrokers! Note that the backstroke flags at the GER pool are at 5 yards (not 5 meters), meaning you'll hit the wall 1-2 strokes faster than you do at the Bethesda pool. So, during warm-up, count how many strokes you'll need to hit the wall so you're prepared for your race.

BE Team Seating Area: As you enter the pool through the main gate, turn left and head to the grassy area to the right of the lifeguard house. Our team area will be in the #1 team area (which will be painted on the grass). Please bring chairs and canopies, as there are not that any shady spots around the pool and tomorrow will be HOT.

What to bring to the meet: See here

Food: The pool's concessions stand will sell breakfast items (Chick-fil-a, bagels, muffins) and drinks (water, Gatorade, coffee).

We look forward to seeing you tomorrow (Saturday). If you have any questions, please contact Coach Malka or any Team Rep.

Go Barracudas!
