Visiting Age Group Areas: The age group areas and visiting team areas will be located outside of the pool in the shady areas and on the basketball court, opposite the TC age group tents. We have trees on the outside of the pool for shade for our visiting teams. The ground is mowed but primitive off of the basketball court. The basketball court surface requires protection. if you plan to bring EZ-Ups or tent-type covers please bring something like flat pieces of wood to put under the supports to prevent damage – please also do not bring stakes to hold down easy ups as this has damaged our sprinkler system in the past.
Ready Bench: TC Ready Bench How To Document
Parking: Parking is limited. Please be good to our neighbors and do not block driveways. Also, remember not to park in crosswalks, intersections or near fire hydrants as APD has ticketed in the past.

Breakfast begins around 7:30 with a variety of Donut Taco Palace breakfast tacos (and a full salsa bar), Smokey Denmark sausage wraps (regular and jalapeno), banana bread, donuts and pastries, (free) fruit, two selections of coffee (Starbucks dark roast and Dunkin’ Donuts medium roast) and assorted juices. Lunch begins around 10:30 with favorites from the grill: hamburgers, cheeseburgers, Beyond burgers, hot dogs plus chicken fajita tacos. We also serve Jersey Mike's sub sandwiches, Double Dave’s pizza slices (pepperoni and cheese) and barbecue pulled pork on either nachos or Frito pie.
