We invite all family and friends to move to our “Be A Fan” Zone in front of the stage/performance floor when their athlete’s team is performing! When in the “Be A Fan” Zone, HAVE FUN!

If you are the designated picture-taker, be sure to keep cameras at shoulder level during the performance. Simply exit in the direction specified after the performance is over.
