Practice at COE

While Washington and Kennedy are both down, we have arranged to swim at Coe college, beginning tomorrow.

Others are using the pool during our normal workout times, but we can have Coe from 6-7am and 8:15-9:15pm Tuesday and Thursday. 

At this point, we are planning that we will be at Coe this week and maybe next week.

I realize this is a different schedule than what we are used to, but I'm grateful to Coach Ruffles for letting us in during our time of need.

If it's been a while since you've been at Coe, you should park on-street or anywhere not marked specifically for faculty/student parking. The pool is in the Eby Fieldhouse, which is in the middle of a big construction zone, so you'll have to wend your way around the fencing. 

There is usually an entrance door to the lower level that is open, to the right of the "main" entrance. I will get there early enough tomorrow to put a sign up.

Pool opens at 6am. The building will be open so you can enter and get ready prior. Locker rooms are just off the pool area.
