VERY IMPORTANT:
Please note our map below for competitor/parents/coaches for entry.
Carpool when possible as parking is limited based on the number of participants attending, especially for Sunday.
We would also recommend that you limit the number of spectators/parents attending due to this and the limited space in the facility.
 
We appreciate your cooperation in helping us to provide a great experience for our athletes and team families.
