Admission to Virginia swimming and diving meets is free to the public.

There will be a few metered spaces available at the AFC and free parking is available at Slaughter Recreation Center and the parking lot closest to the West Gate at Scott Stadium. Spaces designated for those individuals in possession of a disabled parking permit are located off Alderman Road on the west side of the Aquatic and Fitness Center.
