    A walk-through of the facility and visits to the designated problem sites will be offered after the meeting.

    The agenda for the meetings will include an overview of the logistics for tournament day. These will include parking, prop drop-off points and prop storage areas for each problem, guidelines for prop storage and identification of problem sites. We will review team paperwork requirements, the team check-in process. We also will share with you details on Food Services and Merchandise Sales that will be available during the day.

    This is a mandatory meeting for all coaches, even if you have previously coached a team that competed at this tournament location. Space requirements for each problem occasionally differ from year to year, so problem site designations may be different. Plus, we are constantly making changes to improve the tournament experience. There will be differences from last year that coaches will need to be aware of. Coordinators also are highly encouraged to attend.
