Access to water is very limited, so please send either bottled water or a water bottle with your athlete to both training and competition, if you feel they will need water while on the arena floor.
Your child will need a MASK in staging, send their Ziploc bag connected to your credentials that was given to you at the Athlete Check in desk, so they have a clean place to store the mask when they compete.
Staging is located at the far end of the Arena and is only for athletes. There will be NO PARENTS ALLOWED IN STAGING. This year because of COVID, only the next flight will be allowed in the Staging Area. Athletes will check-in at the STAGING ENTRANCE, be told their seat number, and go place their bag on that seat. Then they may begin to stretch.
Only athletes that are in the next flight will be allowed in staging. This is not a place for your kids to just hang out. Please help us with the task of keeping this area clear! More people in this area than necessary can make staging very difficult and limit our ability to properly social distance the athletes. We appreciate your help in controlling this with your athletes.
There will be a large sign located at the staging entrance of the competition floor with the Flight Time that is allowed in the staging area. Please watch the sign for your child’s times. Also please be sure your child knows what event they are in staging for. Many times, athletes come to staging and do not know what event they are there for, so the staff has to play process of elimination and look through the line-up sheets. It will help us to be more organized if you will tell them before they come to staging. If they are small, you can write it on their hand and ask them to show the staff in staging.
There will be NO food or open containers allowed in staging. Only water bottles/bottled water.
We run 60 athletes through our staging area every 20 minutes and our goal is to keep all areas as germ free as possible to help keep your child safe.
