FAQ

How much spending money should I bring with me?
That’s up to you. You will only need money for meals not included in the package and miscellaneous items such as snacks and souvenirs.

How often will I receive updates?
We try to communicate regularly with all attendees. Most of the communication will come through email or our Facebook page. If you’re not receiving emails or have additional email addresses you’d like added to our distribution list then email John Calitri at jcalitri@varsity.com.

My coach is coming to Hawaii as a spectator. Can he/she attend practice? Can my parents?
In order to eliminate all distractions and comply with social distancing, our rehearsals are closed to all spectators. This will hopefully allow us to streamline the practices which in turn should allow for more time on the beach or exploring Hawaii!

What happens if I get injured or become ill during the event?
We will have first aid staff on duty throughout the event. Additional medical treatment is at the expense of the participant.

When do we need to arrive to Honolulu?
Standard arrival day is Saturday, December 4. We do offer a limited number of extra nights (additional fee applies) on Thursday, December 3 for those requesting an early arrival. We suggest arriving as early as you can so that you can get registered and start enjoying Hawaii. It will also allow for any potential flight delays due to weather.

Do we have to follow the group itinerary when it comes to excursions?
No, the only required event is rehearsal for performers if they’d like to participate in the parade performanceHowever, the trips we have planned are amazing opportunities to appreciate what others have given to help ensure our freedom and to learn about the Hawaiian culture. We’d suggest asking your schools for excused absence since educational opportunities exist on this trip.

We missed our deadline for registration and deposit…Are we too late?
Please call our Customer Service at 800-238-0286 Option 2 for availability.

How do we know what size uniform to order?
Watch this short video with instructions on how to properly measure for your uniform. Please note: Your current Varsity uniform will more than likely be a different fit than the uniform we use for Special Events. 

My performer already has a uniform from a past Varsity Spirit Special Event. Is the uniform the same and do we get a discount? 
The uniform for the 2021 Varsity Pearl Harbor Memorial Parade is different from any other Varsity special event uniform so all performers will receive the uniform.

What is the difference between the Participant and Spectator pricing?
The uniform, choreography material and parade opportunity are the only differences. Everything that is listed as INCLUDED in the tour package is available to everyone.
