Here is information regarding parking and entering for this weekend's State Championships.
1) Parking and Entering Carolina Courts- Carolina Courts of Concord is a private athletic facility located in historic downtown Concord, NC. AS you arrive you will likely be looking for the Spring St. Entrance. Be advised that the driveway "down" to the facility is basically a one way road, and the parking lot in front of the facility is designated for HANDICAPPED, Event Staff, and Elderly parking. IT IS RECOMMENDED FOR YOU TO PROCEED DIRECTLY TO THE PARKING GARAGE LOCATED AT THE CORNER OF SPRING STREET SW AND BARBRICK AVE SW AND PARK FIRST. Then walk down the driveway to the facility entrance. If you do come down the drive you may drop off near the front entrance and proceed around the rear of the facility. Take a LEFT on Corban Ave SW which will take you directly back to the parking deck.
Team buses and vans should take a RIGHT on Corban Ave SW and proceed to the gravel lot at the corner of Corban Ave SW and Georgia St SW. CLICK HERE FOR A LABLED MAP AND PARKING INFORMATION FROM OUR WEBSITE.
2) PERSONAL CHAIRS WELCOME- Carolina Courts is an open floor plan with limited bleacher seating available. We WELCOME and ENCOURAGE you to bring your own comfortable chairs (ex. Camping Chairs) Please help us maintain control of the event floor area by keeping spectators and team members not warming up or on the mats OUTSIDE the competition area.
3) TICKETS and COACHING CREDENTIALS- Coaches credentials as well as spectator admission will be available for purchase/pick up on Friday during weigh-ins. We suggest if you are attending the weigh-in that you purchase your admission Friday to help alleviate box office crowding Saturday morning.
4) LATE REGISTRATION/CHANGES- You are getting this email because you completed "early bird" registration. Registration will REMAIN OPEN through 4pm Friday for additional entries (bring a friend!) . You may also change weight classes without penalty through the close of registration at 4pm Friday. Once registration closes, anyone failing to make the weight they are registered for will be charged a bump up/rebrackting fee, or be scratched from the tournament.
On behalf of the entire crew of volunteer leaders at NCUSA, we WELCOME YOU and wish you the VERY BEST for this weekend's Championships! Thank you for your patronage of our event, and we hope that you have a great experience at this year's championships!
