You are viewing the schedule for the venue Student and Recreation Center.
The schedule is displayed in the timezone America/Los_Angeles.
When you arrive, you will receive a card/nametag with personalized information detailing your events and what group you will be competing in for each event. In addition, you will also receive staffing assignments. All competitors are expected to help at this competition. For each event you sign up for, you will be assigned to help out for just one group of that event. If you do not arrive to help during your scheduled event, and there are not enough staff members, we reserve the right to disqualify you from competing.
We will provide a judging tutorial at the beginning of the day, right before the start of 6x6 Round 1, as well as one at the end of lunch, right before 3x3 Round 1. This will allow anyone with questions about how to judge to be properly prepared when they are expected to help. We hope that this system will fairly divide up the judging of the competition and make the competition run smoothly for all.
