Entering/Leaving the Building

Please enter through the glass doors, go up the stairs and walk across the catwalk to the fieldhouse.  Please remain in the spectator overview area until 5 minutes to your start time.  Leave the facility through the same doors.  Please do not use the doors in the fieldhouse to enter or leave the facility, as this is distracting to the players or groups on the field and helps us control temperatures and to keep fees lower.
