This is the second annual tournament hosted at Olive Knolls Christian School in Bakersfield, CA. We have a large and spacious facility that easily holds our tournament. Spectators will enjoy our large foyer with elevated viewing area. We will have two competition fields, a practice field, and a skills field. We are asking that at least one team member stays to help reset the field of play after each match.
Food, drinks, and snacks will be available to purchase at the tournament. As this is a quick moving event, we recommend that your team plan to stay on site for the day.
