All teams will need to check-in either virtually prior to the event or in person on the afternoon/evening of Monday, July 8. If doing so in person, only one member of the team’s coaching staff will need to attend their team’s check-in. Each team will need to email or bring a hard copy of their team’s proof of insurance and verify their roster by email or on site as well (roster additions may be made until your team has checked in, at which point the roster is locked for this event). More specific information about the check-in process will be coming in future updates. The opening ceremonies will begin in the early evening (at 530p CDT) on Monday, July 8. Opening ceremonies will include music for all that wish to attend as well as a fireworks show (weather permitting) and more. Opening ceremonies will conclude around 8:30-9p (CDT). During the duration of team check-in and opening ceremonies, we will also have a “help desk” available to answer any questions that anyone has for the event. We will also have many vendors and food trucks on site and this time would provide a great opportunity for any pin trading that might be desired as well.
