Swim Down Pool
The swim down pool is an important part of a swimmer’s preparation and will be available throughout the meet. This should be used for swimmers to warm up and swim down only. There have recently been instances of swimmers swimming to the bottom of the pool and diving in. Please make sure that you supervise your swimmers and that they are aware that this is dangerous and is not permitted. If the lead referee or Ponds Forge staff feel that the use of the swim down pool is being abused, it may be necessary to withdraw the facility.
We look forward to seeing you there!
