Parking

The McHugh Gym is on the west side of school. Early arrivals can park along the west (gym) side of the building. Additional parking is in the rear and on the east side of the building. Please avoid parking in front of the school.

The competition will be held in the gym. The pit area will be in the cafeteria, which is directly below the gym. Teams may load-in through the front doors of the McHugh Gym, although it may be more convenient to park and load in through the locker room doors at the rear of the building.

 

Changes to Tournament Structure

In an attempt to get more teams qualified for the NH/VT State Championship, we plan to restrict the alliance selection process.  The top 8 teams cannot pick from the other 7 top teams.  Alliance selection will proceed as a "snake drive."  After the 8th seeded team selects its first alliance partner, it will be asked to select its 2nd partner.  Selection will proceed to the 7th seeded alliance, then the 6th seeded team, and so on. We hope that the selection process will add some parity to the alliances and thereby qualify more teams.
