    We will have a team tent (we are comprised of swimmers from Briarwood, Murphey Candler & Hampton Hall). It will either be in the outdoor pool area or in the open grass across from the front entrance. *Note the outdoor play pool will not be available for use.

    Onsite amenities: Locker rooms, concession stands, equipment vendor, t-shirt vendor, photographer & athletic trainer. The main concessions will be on the outdoor pool deck. There will be two additional vendors near the front entrance of the aquatics center selling breakfast and lunch.

    Attire: Your team swimsuit, cap and t-shirt. *Unfortunately the City of Brookhaven was not able to provide t-shirts and swim caps this year.

    Onsite Photographer: River Oak Photography will be there once again to capture some incredible, special moments. If you would like to reserve a session, please follow the link below:
