The City of Pleasanton’s (DBAC) will be the host site for the annual Tri-Valley Swim League Championships on Saturday, August 4, 2012. The meet is expected to draw about 900 swimmers and spectators who will begin to arrive at 6:00 a.m. The event will continue until approximately 5:30 p.m.
The has worked with the Tri-Valley Swim League to develop plans for a successful competition and reduced impact on the neighborhoods surrounding the Aquatic Center, located at 4455 Black Avenue near Santa Rita Road. Congested traffic conditions may occur on Santa Rita Road and Black Avenue each morning as the swimmers begin to arrive for the day’s competition.
Accordingly, City staff has developed a traffic flow system for the Aquatic Center to facilitate competitor drop-off, and participants have been notified of pre-designated parking locations that would reduce the impacts on the surrounding neighborhoods.
Pleasanton’s Aquatic Center is the home of the DBAC Piranha Swim Team. Also competing in the league are the Briarhill Barracudas, Clubsport Tidal Waves, Del Prado Stingrays, Dublin Green Gators, FAST Dolphins, Pleasanton Meadows Sharks, and Ruby Hill Killer Whales swim teams, representing hundreds of young swimmers in the Tri-Valley region dedicated to the development of a positive attitude towards swimming through the fun and competitive experience of being on a swim team.
