Here's the schedule and logistics info for the NorCal Sectional
With the NorCal Sectionals right around the corner, let's cover all the things you need to know about getting to the competition. This post does not cover movement standards or the Sunday workout(s). Those things will be detailed in a future post.

7:00am - 8:30am: Competitor Check-In
7:30am: Mandatory Meeting for Judges

9:00am - 5:45pm: Saturday Competition
Competition Site Logistics
The NorCal Sectionals are taking place on a high school campus in San Jose, CA. With that in mind, there is a small parking lot (capacity of approximately 75 cars), in which people will be allowed to park on a first-come, first-served basis. After the lot is full, parking will be street-side, with most parking taking place along Lawrence Expressway and surrounding streets. We highly recommend carpooling.
There will be no vendors on site, so be sure to bring plenty of food and water to keep yourself nourished in between workouts (or in between watching workouts). There are also several restaurants in the surrounding area.
In addition, if you're competing in the Sectionals, please be sure to bring any workout supplies and accessories you might need (tape, chalk, lifting shoes, etc.). We'll have a medical staff on-site, but they're there for medical emergencies, not to provide athletic supplies.
There will also be a small area of the parking lot set aside for tents, coolers, etc., doled out on a first-come, first-served basis.
And lastly, as part of our agreement with the high school, there can be no alcohol on the premises.
We have not published a Sunday schedule because we won't know how many competitors are moving through to Sunday until the end of competition Saturday. It's important to note that we're not setting a hard cap on the number of competitors that move through to the Sunday competition (e.g., top 40, top 100, etc.). If you compete in Saturday's competition, do the workouts as prescribed, and place high enough to have a mathematical chance of finishing in the top 20 after Sunday's competition, you'll move on to Sunday.
Competitors who do not finish high enough to have a chance to finish in the top 20, as well as those who need to scale, will not move on to Sunday.
We'll be offering a two-for-one discount for spectators; purchase one $50 spectator ticket and you'll get a friend in for free. You can purchase tickets at the gate the day of the competition (cash only, please bring exact change). If you've already purchased a spectator ticket online, simply bring a printed confirmation of your purchase when checking in (the confirmation email will be fine), and you will get to bring in another person free of charge. Make sure you buddy up with someone to take advantage of this pricing.
If you're just watching one day of competition, the price is $15 (single admission, single day).
Spectators can check in at any time during the day, but the earlier you get there, the better.
