Autograph Arena Open To Swim Fans at the Orlando Grand Prix Feb14-16

Orlando swim fans are invited to come meet their favorite Team USA swimmers during the Arena Grand Prix at Orlando at the YMCA Aquatics Center on International Drive, February 14-16. The “Autograph Arena” is open to the public daily and does not require an event ticket.

Arena North America GM Tim McCool said the Autograph Arena is part of the company’s commitment to growing the sport of swimming.

“The opportunity for local kids to get to meet the swimmers they watched on television last summer is one that we felt was very special. Most everyone has a memory of meeting a professional athlete, and Arena wanted to create that memory for kids in Orlando.”

The Autograph Arena will be open the following hours:

      10:30 a.m.-12:00 p.m.  Thursday-Saturday open to the public
            4:00 p.m. – 5:30 p.m.    Thursday-Saturday open to the public

Additionally, the first 200 children to attend the meet with a ticket each evening will receive a limited edition “Arena Grand Prix” autograph book.
