Here is the Event Schedule for Friday March 9th.  All activities are being held at the Berglund Center (also known as the Roanoke Civic Center).

 

5:00-10:00: Selling of Admission Wristbands  

Admission wristbands are required for entry to all tournament sites on Saturday and Sunday (not Friday night).  Kids age 10 and under get in for free as do Shamrock players and coaches and college coaches.  Admission wristbands cost $10 per day or $15 for both days.  We strongly encourage you to purchase your admission wristbands on Friday evening as there will be limited staff selling wristbands at each tournament location on Saturday and Sunday so long lines are possible.  We do accept credit cards but paying cash is preferred as this will speed things up for all involved.  If needed, please consider sending a team representative on Friday evening to purchase wristbands for all of your team/club’s spectators.


5:00-10:00:  Selling of Shamrock Apparel and Other Items

Tournament t-shirts, tank tops, sweatshirts, and  sweatpants, will not be available at all tournament locations during the weekend and we have limited quantities of various sizes and colors so we encourage you to purchase your tournament apparel on Friday night to ensure that you get exactly what you want.  There is no printed tournament program so please print off the schedule from home if you prefer a hard copy to viewing on your phone or laptop.  There is NO TEAM CHECK-IN required this year so you do not need to bring any printed rosters or anything.


5:30-7:15:  Showcase Session 1

Check-In for accepted Session 1 participants will be from 4:30-5:15 when participants will receive their Showcase shirt and court assignment.  Go to Showcase Page for more details and/or if you still want to register.


6:00-7:30: Instructional Clinic

We are hosting an Instructional Kids’ Clinic for boys and girls age 6-12.  The clinic will be held in the Coliseum portion of the Roanoke Civic Center and we will have 4 courts available so we can separate kids by age and ability. The cost of the clinic is only $25 and all participants receive a gift at the end of the clinic.  To reserve your spot, please click HERE and fill in the brief online registration form so we know how many kids to expect.  If you have any questions, please e-mail director@shamrockfestival.org.  Walk-ins will be accepted on Friday if there is still room but please register in advance if you can so we can plan accordingly.  Please check your son or daughter in anytime from 5:00-5:45.
