Coaches Packet — There will be no coaches meeting.  We ask that you check in the tournament desk when your team arrives, at which time we will give you a coaches packet, which will take the place of a meeting.  The coaches packet is downloadable here if you would like to review it in advance:

Food Tables

We will provide enough tables for each team to use 1/2 table for food inside the gym. Please do not bring your own tables into the gym, as we do not have room for them.

tailgating

If you desire more space and weather permits, tailgating outside is permitted and encouraged.  If you avail yourselves of this option, please set up your tents in the grassy area in front and to the side of the building — NOT in the parking field and certainly not in front of our neighbors’ vehicles.

Gate

Children under 10 are admitted free.  All others will need to pay a $5/person entrance fee.

Parking

There should be sufficient parking on site for this tournament.  If the front lot is full, there is room — along with a second entrance — to the rear of the building. We have two overflow alternatives in the event that ours is full — across Hembree Road in the Alpharetta Public Works Building, or the building immediately south of SVC – in the Endochoice lot.  Please do NOT park in the lot across the street serving AT&T, and do NOT park on the grass, in a reserved spot, or in a handicap spot (unless you display the proper credential), as violators will be towed.

If you have questions, please contact one of the following:

Briana Johnson                              Michael Fletcher

    Bob/Michael – do we have a schedule for the GA Challenge (Varsity) yet? Thanks, Don

      Sorry for the delay in responding, Don. We’ve had one withdrawal and another minor conflict so have had to re-do the schedules. Will get these out to participating coaches this weekend (Labor Day).

      I CAN tell you this: doors open at 8 a.m.; pool play commences at 9. The Championship Match is scheduled to begin at 4:00.

    Hey Michael –

    I am Lindsay Seagraves mom and I am the coordinator for Walton. Can you please let me know if we will need to bring tables for our food table? Will the play schedule be posted so I can pass on to team and parents? Do parents need to bring chairs or will there be bleachers?

    Thanks!

    Leigh Anne

      Hi Leigh Anne,

      We don’t have room to allow teams to bring tables into the building. We will furnish tables; each team will be allocated 1/2 table. Weather permitting many teams choose to tailgate outside.

      The schedules have been forwarded to the coaches and won’t be posted on line.

      We have plenty of chairs and bleachers but spectators are welcome to bring their own if they choose.

      Hope that helps.
