SOTX staff and volunteers have spent the last several months preparing for the Fall Classic, and this week their preparations have moved into high gear. This year’s Fall Classic promises to be the best one yet. We’re all looking forward to seeing more than 1,800 athletes and their coaches and friends and family in Bryan/College Station.

 

I hope you’ll be able to join us.

 

We’ve got something special planned for the coaches during their meeting on Thursday night. Opening Ceremonies Friday night will be held at the historic O.R. Simpson Drill Field…and the Celebration Dance will begin in the same place immediately after the Opening Ceremonies have concluded.

 

No matter which sport you’re competing in, be sure to stop by Athlete Village and Healthy Athletes at the Brazos County Exposition Complex. Many fun and exciting activities have been planned…and the first 100 athletes screened will receive gift cards from Subway.

 

Whenever you see a volunteer this weekend, whether they’re a Coach, a Class A or Day of Event volunteer, please take a moment to thank them for their service to our athletes. We truly can’t do any of this without our volunteers. Thank you and be safe in your travels.
