What to Bring to the Meet

We strongly encourage all families to bring a cooler with food and drink choices for you and your athletes. 


Have enough food and drinks for the entire day.  Rolling coolers are optimal.


Bring cushions, stadium seats, and portable chairs should you desire to sit away from the stands.


Everyone is expected to clean up their trash and debris.


We encourage the Denver Lightning family to cheer on all of the team athletes.
Don’t forget the sunscreen!
