Location Tips

  • It’s not a requirement, but it’s a tradition for teams to bring a banner to hang in the gym! The university doesn’t allow us to use tape, so be sure to pack rope or string. – Stan
  • The facility provides a set a bleachers and a few chairs, but some coaches prefer to bring their own lawn chairs to camp! – Blake
  • The gym is located in UALR’s student union. You can bring extra money to purchase snacks from their book store, coffee shop and restaurants like Quizno’s! – Christy
