Competitors, coaches and spectators will be thrilled with the spacious warm-up and performance halls...because this year we have guaranteed access to all three exhibit halls!
COMPETITION AMENITIES Upon arriving at the convention center, your first stop will be Championship Check-In, where your Championship Ambassador will provide you with event credentials, final paperwork and answer any questions you may have. Then, one hour before your performance time, you'll be directed to the spacious Warm-Up Area, where you'll be granted access to a stretching station, a 70-foot spring tumble strip and a full-size floor for practice. Next, you'll take center stage in the Performance Hall, which will feature an elevated performance stage or elevated spectator seating, state-of-the-art production elements and digitally-integrated sound so you can rock the house! Finally, after exiting the stage, your team will be personally escorted to a Private Replay Booth, where they can view their award-winning routine and receive their National Championship commemorative gifts.
