Please see the information below which will help you navigate the weekend.
Good Luck to all our swimmers this weekend at NCAP.
Coaches / Team Reps,
Only one day until the invite starts!. Here are a couple reminders: (please pass them on to your families)
1) WIFI Access at the Meet
The University of Maryland has asked that if you want wireless access in the building, please click the following link:
A code will then be emailed to them on Thursday after 12:00pm
2) Parking - Parking will be available in the Terrapin Trail parking garage - Parking can be pre-paid here: https://my.parkingsoft.com/umd/PrePurchase
3) Traffic in the beltway area is sometimes less than optimal, (in other words - terrible) - please allow ample time to get to prelims and finals, especially on Friday.
4) If you have not already - please sign up to volunteer for a job at the meet - it is a great way to be close to the action and to help your athletes have a better experience.

One of the hot spots is to be sure we have enough volunteers is to guide the swimmers on the diving end course to be lined up and out on to the bulkhead. It is a bit tight space-wise and any help we get on directing traffic will be appreciated.
5) Admissions / Gate - Due to the cost of facility rental and logistics for hosting a championship meet of this magnitude and size, we have had a small admission charge at the meet for the last several years. From the meet announcement:
There will be an admission charge of $20.00, which includes a meet program and finals heat sheets for the entire weekend. If you do not wish to purchase a program, there will be a charge of $3.00 per prelim session entry. There is no charge for Thursday evening distance, however you can purchase your program and entry for the remainder of the weekend. If you do not buy the meet program – finals heat sheets will be $2.00 per finals session.
At this time we are only equipped to take cash, we cannot accept credit or debit cards. Wrist bands will be issued on a daily basis.
Thank you again for attending the meet. For the last several years we have had multiple national age group records set at the meet as well as an American record last year - so hold on tight for a fast meet!
