Participants are encouraged to pre-pay for parking upon registration for a discounted price of $5 or anyone (competing or not) is able to purchase a stand alone pass within the registration store. Anyone who pre-pays for parking will be put on the pre-paid list at the guard shack.

Registration Options

  1. Individuals are encouraged to use this page for registration.
    • You are permitted to register multiple participants under the same transation.
  2. Teams can request a coupon code which would permit either individuals on a team to register without having to pay at that time or a coach can enter all of their athletes and then be sent a single invoice or the entry fee would be payable at check-in.
  3. Large Teams can request a preformatted spreadsheet to complete their entries. This option would bypass the online platform and allow for a team leader to enter all information on the spreadsheet. Please contact the meet director if you are interested in this option.
