• NO Parking on grass, the park is pretty adamant about this, and rightfully so, it is a beautiful park!
• Please Do Not Park in roped off areas.
If you park in any of these areas, the city will tow your vehicle without notice.
The venue is located north of Dallas in Allen, Texas, east of U.S. 75. Exit Main Street in Allen and travel east 2.5 miles. Turn left onto Angel Parkway. Go half a mile and Celebration Park will be on the left. (east parking lot closest to playing site) If the main parking lot fills up, additional parking is located on the west side of the park off CLEAR SPRINGS Dr. on N. Malone Rd and Rivercrest Blvd (the side streets by the apartments).
Arrival at the Park on Saturday & Sunday:
All persons must wear a mask, only toddlers 0-5 years old are exempt from the mask policy. Masks must remain on unless playing or sitting with immediate family only. If a person arrives without a mask, they may purchase one from us. We will have them readily available.
We will be doing health screenings on every player and spectator up arrival on both days.
Stay on the SIDEWALK and follow the signs to the Temperature check station. After that, we will place a wrist band on every person that clears the screening. Any person with a temperature will have to leave the park.
If you have any symptoms, Fever, Cough, Aching muscles (other than sport soreness), please do not come. We will allow roster changes up until the tournament begins.
The Bracelet must remain on all day, and a new, different colored bracelet will be issued on Sunday after clearing the screening process once again.

Teams may make roster changes up until Saturday morning at 8:30. E-mail them by Wednesday. After Weds, please bring the form with you to check in. You will be allowed to do so on-site during check-in. It is the team captain’s responsibility to be sure all team members playing have signed a wavier and turned it in to event staff. Any roster that is challenged, by staff or a team, you must be able to prove that your team is playing with team members who are ALL registered with waivers on file, it will result in forfeiting all games played with any non-registered and signed waiver players. Also, late additions may not receive a t-shirt. We ordered extras, but it cannot be guaranteed.
