Parking – CRA members cannot park in the B&G parking lot except on Sunday when the club is not in operation. Dropping off your swimmer(s) at the front entrance is super easy. There are a variety of street parking options in the immediate vicinity. Expect about a 10 minute walk to the pool, so plan accordingly if you park and do not drop off.

When you get to the B&G – Check in with the front desk and inform them you are here for a CRA lesson. They will direct you to the locker rooms. All swimmers should change and then check in on the pool deck five minutes before their scheduled lesson.
Pick Up/Drop Off – If you choose to drop your swimmer off, they can check themselves in at the desk and on pool deck. For picking up, it is very important nobody idles in the parking lot! It is narrow and will block the flow of traffic through the lot. If you are picking your swimmer up you will need to circle through the lot until the arrive or set a location outside the lot they can meet you on the street.
Watching lessons – There is seating at the pool that is separated from the rest of the deck. You are welcome to remain in the seats during the lesson and watch. We ask that families continue to uphold our deck policy and parents keep their distance and watch from the seats and do not walk around on the pool deck aside from going to the locker rooms. You will have a great view of your swimmers class from the benches! We ask parents do not hang around in any other parts of the club. You should either be on the deck watching or waiting to pick your swimmer up out front.
