WARM-UPS: We expect to be able to use the dive tank for continuous warm up and warm down through the duration of the meet. However, because of King County Aquatic Center staffing/lifeguard issues it may not be possible.  We may not know until the days leading up to the meet.  In the event that there is no dive tank availability, in order to comply with the USMS rule that there be made available warm up and warm down through the duration of the meet, we will have 1 lane in each pool for continuous warm up/warm down and 6 lanes for competition for the distance events. The scoreboard end pool will be available during the rest of the meet.
