A copy of your alpha weigh-in sheet is also required.
Locker Rooms: Like all other sites around the state, the care of the locker room area is left up to the coaches and their teams. Wrestlers will have to bring their own locks and towels. We ask that you remind your teams that keeping your area clean is important. Please No Food or Drink in the locker rooms. Thank you in advance for your consideration in helping us to keep this facility in a condition we are all proud of.

Food: A concession stand will be open from 8:30 to the end of the tournament with a wide variety of healthy products. Teams that bring their own food must leave food in the commons where tables will be set up. No food will be allowed in the gym or in the locker rooms. Your assistance in helping us in this will be greatly appreciated.
