We hope this checklist will help you prepare for each game during the upcoming season. There will always be unknowns, but we hope this "worry-free" list will assist you so your day can be spent enjoying what you love best - cheering on your child.

- Extra pair of shoes for after the game
- Consider an exta pair of clothes (for rainy days)
- Towels for your car seats (to protect your wet athlete from bringing the outside, inside)
- Navigation set! This site has a FIELDS tab so you can find your destination in advance.
- Snack for your athlete
