Event Entries: Please have your entry list data files to our computer guy Jeff Davis (firstname.lastname@example.org) by 2:00 p.m. on Thursday. If you have questions about data files or entry procedures, please contact us as soon as possible. You can expect a preliminary heat sheet by 5:00 p.m. Thursday for review. Any changes are due by noon Friday – a complete new entry file is requested. Final heat sheets should be available between 5:00 and 6:00 p.m. on Friday. Please note that our pool is a 25 yard pool. Reminder, each team is responsible for bringing their own heat sheets for your volunteers. Travis Country will provide stop watches (we are also using a Dolphin timing system), DQ slips, clipboards, and pencils.
Timers - We use the Dolphin Wireless timing system integrated with HyTek Meet Manager 4.0. If you haven’t used these before you will receive instructions on their functionality before the meet / your timer shift.
Meet Time: The meet will begin promptly at 8:00 a.m. There will not be any deck entries or last minute changes to heat sheets, only if there has been a computer entry error that needs to be corrected. Time permitting we will have a parents and/or coaches relay. The meet will conclude around 2:00 to allow the pool to open by 3:00 (in compliance with HOA guidelines).

Visiting Age Group Areas: The age group areas and visiting team areas will be located outside of the pool in the shady areas and on the basketball court, opposite the TC age group tents. We have trees on the outside of the pool for shade for our visiting teams. The ground is mowed but primitive off of the basketball court. The basketball court surface is apparently very sensitive, if you plan to bring EZ-Ups or tent-type covers please bring some sort of protection such as flat pieces of wood to put under the supports to prevent damage – please also do not bring stakes to hold down easy ups as this has damaged our sprinkler system in the past.
Ready Bench: TC Ready Bench How To Document
Parking: Parking is limited. Please be good to our neighbors and do not block driveways. Also, remember not to park in crosswalks, intersections or near fire hydrants as APD has ticketed in the past.
Concessions: Our Shark Shack concessions stand serves a full breakfast and lunch menu. Breakfast begins around 6:30 with a variety of breakfast tacos (and a full salsa bar), P. Terry's banana bread, yogurt, donuts and other pastries, (free) fruit, two selections of coffee (Starbucks and Dunkin’ Donuts) and assorted juices. A little later in the morning we serve sausage wraps (regular and jalapeno). Lunch begins around 10:30 with Frito Pie (with either chili or barbeque brisket), hot dogs (including loaded dogs with chili and the fixings), Double Dave’s pizza slices, veggie burgers, chips & queso and Italian meatball subs. A little before noon we begin serving hamburgers, cheeseburgers and pulled pork barbeque tacos. A variety of other snacks and drinks are served throughout the day.
See our full menu here. (Along with cash we accept credit and debit cards for your convenience.)
Welcome to Travis Country and we look forward to seeing you at the Shack!
