Meet Information - May 28 at Wells Branch

Hello Marlins!

We're excited for our first meet of the season this Saturday! I'll be the meet director this year along with Donna Trevino. The following is an outline of the important information you will need to know for this week’s meet. We are the visiting team so please pay close attention to directions and parking instructions. The Marlins board will have a ‘headquarters’ tent near the parking lot in our team’s designated area to address questions during the meet.

Don’t Forget

  • Cap
  • Goggles
  • Towel
  • Chair
  • Sunscreen
  • Water Bottle
  • Snacks
  • Shoes
  • Team t-shirt
  • Entertainment (book, coloring items, card games, stuff your child might take to entertain themselves on a road trip)
  • Label everything!

If this is your first swim meet you can watch this video demonstrating how to mark your swimmer’s arm with their event-heat-lane, but the tent parents can also help with this.

Upon arriving and checking in, you will drop your swimmer off in their age group tent which will be labeled with signs. They will stay there throughout the meet under the wonderful care of their Tent Parents. You do not need to get your swimmer ready for their events, trust the fabulous Tent Parents!

If for some reason your swimmer needs to leave their tent, they need to talk to their Tent Parent first. But really, trust the Tent Parents to help them with everything from swim caps to bathroom trips.

Location and Parking

2801 Sauls Drive, Austin, TX 78728

(at the corner of Sauls Drive and Bratton Lane in Wells Branch)

As with most locations, parking is limited and we ask that you pay careful attention to ensure you are parked in an acceptable location to help maintain a positive relationship with the community we are visitors in.

Please allow extra time for parking and walking to the pool. Note that you can drop off swimmers in front of the pool gate and then go park.

  • There is limited parking in the lot adjacent to the pool
  • There is on-street parking on Sauls Drive, the adjacent streets, and the nearby Joe Lee Johnson elementary school.

Do not park on Bratton Lane or in the parking lots of the businesses on Long Vista or you will be towed. Long Vista itself now has no parking signs along it for the half-block nearest to the pool.

Tent/Pit Area

We will have age group tents outside of the pool gates near the playground. Standard team policy is to not have swimmers on the playground to ensure everyone has supervision to be on-time to events, shade, and stays hydrated. There are two single restrooms outside of the gate and additional ones inside of the gate.

Special Needs Swimmers

If your child has any special considerations (e.g. hearing-impairment) please let the coaches and myself know to discuss and plan accommodations.

Pool Information

The Wells Branch pool is a six lane – 25 yard pool. The pool is deep enough for on-deck relay starts. The exact length is 75.08 feet and the conversion factor is 0.999.

There will be a concession stand and swim shop from the host team.

Parent and Coaches Relay

We plan on having a coaches/parents relay at half-time with space for up to three Marlin’s teams. If you are interested please email me, drozmonkey@gmail.com, to let me know and bring your suit.

Mobile App

SwimTopia Mobile is the companion app for the software which the swim circuit has standardized on this year. The free version includes a live Event/Heat board and is very helpful for receiving important information updates.

Equipment Help Needed!

Following the meet we are requesting help to move our teams equipment from our storage shed near Brushy Creek Elementary to our home pool at Sendro. We’ll have an extra trailer but if you would be willing to swing by and take a load in your vehicle or extra hands it would be greatly appreciated. We will have a crew at the shed to help load, and another crew at the pool to unload. Please stop by and we will load you up. More hands make for less work!


Go Marlins!!

2022 Brushy Creek Marlins Covid Policy

Our current 2022 COVID policy is as follows:

In accordance with the current CDC guidelines fully vaccinated people may resume pre-pandemic activities without wearing a mask or physically distancing. The Brushy Creek Marlins Swim Team strongly suggests that high risk or unvaccinated volunteers and spectators continue to wear masks when unable to maintain physical distance from other people. 

These policies are subject to change, and the Brushy Creek Marlins swim team will defer to guidelines set forth by the Brushy Creek MUD, City of Round Rock, and Williamson County when making changes.
