Heading to Eau Claire in a couple of weeks? We want yo to be as prepared as can be whether you are a spectator or an athlete so here is the low down for our favorite Wisconsin competition!
If you are a competitor:
We now have 2 athlete check in times available! The first check in will take place from 6-8pm on Friday the 19th at the Chippewa Valley Expo Center. The second check in will be on Saturday morning from 7:30-9am, same place. The athlete briefing will take place on the event floor after check in on Friday and will be broadcast live on Facebook.
**You will need to have signed our online waiver and present your ID at check in. ALL athletes need to check in between these time frames. Any athlete not checked in by 9am on Saturday will be disqualified…so I would say, make this a priority to get there! Athletes on teams can check in at separate times.
We will kick off the weekend at 9:30am on Saturday! An exact event schedule with heat times will be posted online. Please make sure to show up at the Expo Center with enough time to get ready, warm up and be staged for your heat time (20 min prior to your heats “go” time).
But what will I wear?!? No need to stress, we’ve thought of most items you will need including: all workout necessities, rollers, protein, PVC pipes, knee sleeves, jump ropes, tape, shoes, wrist wraps, food, coolers, tents, a blanket for nap time, supplements, tiger balm etc.
While you are here, be a part of the community! We strive to make this experience excellent for you and every athlete, volunteer and spectator involved; we want you to be inspired and have some fun! WE ENCOURAGE you to give high fives, say “hey” to the GameDay Staff, cheer on others around you, give it all you got and encourage those around you until the last athlete is finished… that is what makes the experience so exciting!
You can expect the doors to open at 7:30 am each day. Tickets will be available at the door for 15$/day. Parking is free all around the Expo Center during the event and kids 18 and under are free all weekend so bring the family!
PLAN to bring some cash for shopping at our vendor village! We will have apparel vendors, supplement vendors, coffee and food vendors and we of course will be set up with some sweet new swag at the GameDay booth. Stop by, say hi, grab a shirt or two and have some fun seeing what each vendor has to offer!
Concessions are available at the event! No need to miss any action as the concessions will offer coffee, breakfast and lunch items.
While you are here… plan to cheer on the athletes and dive into the spirit of GameDay. Our mission is to inspire and excite not only our athletes but our spectators too. Don’t be afraid to get out next to the event floor, get loud and be a part of the action!
The countdown begins for GameDay Eau Claire, see you all in Wisconsin!
