Parking: Four parking areas are available with shuttle service. Individuals pay $10 admission upon entering shuttle buses and receive a wristband. Wristband will not be required to return to any shuttle location, in case one is lost, torn, or a student-athlete is returning home with parents. Parking is free at the shuttle bus locations.
