Spring Games 2024 Map

This is a designated place for all schools and group homes to drop any belongings they may have for the day. It also offers an awesome viewing area of the day’s events! PLEASE, NO TENTS ARE ALLOWED TO SET UP ON ANY PART OF THE TRACK. Please only set up at the designated areas.

There are two entrances to the Softball location. Each athlete will be at one of the three throwing areas.

Track side for each athlete will be different. The side (pink/green) of the track they will be on will be on their name tag the day of the event. Please stick to the assigned side of the track or they will not be able to participate!

Long jump is an official event this year. All athletes (if signed up) will need to report to this area and once they are done, they are encouraged to go hang out at Olympic Town or just hang out.  It’s vital that everyone listens for the athlete names to help the events run smoothly.

Please see the map below for the traffic pattern for volunteers. You will turn onto Williamson Ave off of university drive and will be directed into the new stadiums parking lot. You will then be directed to park in the upper section of the lower lot.
