Other stadium rules:

• The Upper parking lot by the field will only be used for Handicap parking. You can drop off players and return your vehicle to the lower parking lot by the entrance of the school property. If you require special assistance please contact your nearest Jr Grizzly representative and we will attempt to make all accommodations for the enjoyment of your families.

Warm ups for players will be held at the lower field on the opposite side of the campus. We will have player/team representatives available to escort you to your practice locations and ensure you are escorted back to the stadium field prior to the 4th QTR of the preceding game. If at any time you need assistance, please locate your nearest Jr Grizzly volunteer and we will take care of your location and entrance needs.

Away team is responsible for Chains and Home teams are in charge of the booth. If there are any conflicts, please advise asap so that we can make arrangements to ensure a fun, safe, and worry free day.

On the Field: The Jr. Grizzlies will provide water jugs for the teams and will replenish them throughout the day. Please provide your own water bottles to fill up for your players. We would like to request that your coaches help clean up the sidelines, so it is ready for the next team. We would also like to request that your parents help us to pick up their stands when their game is over.

Only SYF Badged Personnel are allowed on the field of play. We will have visual reminders and barrier set up to ensure player and fan separation. Please police your families and ensure there are no unauthorized personnel on the field. As you my already know, Golden Sierra is a very “open” stadium with very little fencing and physical separation from fan and player. So please ensure your families are following the visual reminders and stay off the field of play

Snack Bar: The Jr. Grizzlies will have a full snack bar. Make sure to try a Grizzly Challenge offered exclusively at the Grizzly Dome. Credit Card transactions are available and will be charged $.50 per transaction to cover bank fees.

Visitor seating is limited so feel free to bring chairs and a pop up to set up on the track in front of and to the sides of the visitor benches. We will have an area roped off for your cheerleaders, so be sure to respect that zone for their enjoyment and use.

Please also try to police your folks as best as possible. We often have families trying to sneak in through the upper basketball courts and hate having those confrontations with our visitors. Please come through the main entrance of the field so we can avoid any uncomfortable confrontations.
