SOTX Animal / Pet Policy

Only certified service animals are allowed at SOTX practices or competitions for safety reasons. Law enforcement will be called if an animal is left in a vehicle during what is considered hazardous or dangerous environmental conditions. It is also a venue policy that any animal, other than a certified service animal, not be allowed on the grounds. We expect that you share this information with your families.


Medical will be onsite during the competition hours. Heads of Delegation are required to bring copies of Athlete Medicals to assist Medical if needed. Competition cannot start until Medical is onsite. Medical will be housed out of the Competition Headquarters Tent.
