- Come early with a chair! – Seating is sparse in most of the gyms so it is recommended that you bring your own folding chairs. Some sites have bleachers or benches on the courts but you may want them during the team breaks. (some might not even allow chairs – Check the tournament information page)
- Magazines, books, anything that can chew up time between games
- Light Jacket/Sweatshirt/Blanket – Can be chilly in Gyms (Winter coat can be too warm)
Pay close attention to the play schedule and food needs of your players. Some tournaments the players will only have an hour to sit so that needs to be the time they eat a healthy snack!
