Summer Long Course at Schaal Pool
Day Time

Tuesday/Thursday June - August

(see calendar for exact dates for each year) 

6:00 AM Schaal Pool is located on the UC Davis campus on the southwest corner of Hutchison and La Rue (map).

The morning practice is from 6-7a.m. and replaces the Arroyo pool sessions. Civic practices at 6 and 7a.m. are still offered. Lane lines usually have to be put in and members begin pulling them down at 5:50a.m. UCDavis parking enforcement at the Schaal lot begins at 7:15a.m.

The evening practices are scheduled to begin at 6:10 and 7:10p.m. The first practice actually starts as soon as the lane lines are in, which can take less than 10 minutes and the second practice begins one hour later. Plan on starting closer to 6 and 7, rather than later. Parking is free before 7:15a.m. and after 5p.m.
