A clear bag policy will be in effect at the Sprint Center. Each team will receive a clear bag at registration. Team members should plan to bring minimal items. All items holding pins will have to be removable and must be easily examined. To avoid long wait times, please refrain from placing any pins on any articles of clothing that cannot be removed. Pin binders will not be allowed into the arena, so we encourage you to place pins on a pin towel, lanyard, or in your clear, approved plastic bag. For all Sprint Center prohibited items, click here.
