Participants should plan on arriving at 7:30am to set up.  Busing will be provided for schools that request it. The bus will run from your child’s school to the event and return to your child’s school after the event. Exact busing times will be available from your child’s coach. If a school site does not request busing, they need to make other arrangement for transportation to the event. Students should start the day with a good breakfast at home. Lunch and a light snack will be provided for student participants. Concessions will be sold at the event. Teams are allowed to bring their own food.


Parents, family members and friends are a vital part of the day. Most important is supporting your child throughout their competition and judging.  We could not have a successful event without parent volunteers.  Each school site will need volunteers to help with their teams.  The tournament organizers also need parent volunteers to help with the overall tournament.  This usually consists of checking teams in to various judging events and helping with lunch.
