For the quickest entry into the basketball games, we strongly recommend that you do not bring a bag to the game. If a bag is necessary, the bag must meet the following criteria in order to enter the gymnasium/venue:
Bags must be CLEAR plastic, vinyl or PVC and not exceed 12” x 6” x 12”. Bags cannot be tinted with color or include oversized content that prevents visibility into the clear bag. Clear book bags are acceptable for use as diaper bags for adults who have infants or toddlers. Small, pocket-sized wallets are allowable in a clear bag
Any type of non-clear bag will not be permitted. Exceptions will only be made for medically necessary items after proper inspection by security personnel. Please ask for assistance at the entrance.
Guests with non-complying bags can store their items in their car and return for entrance.
