All team participants must register from 1-2pm outside the Johnson Athetics Center, when team shirts will also be distributed.
The opening ceremony will be held at 2pm at the rear of Kresge Auditorium, and the Games are expected to conclude by 5:30pm. There will be a post-Games barbecue from 5-7pm, which will include the awards ceremony at approximately 6:30pm. The Games will be held in various indoor locations in the event of inclement weather.
Throughout the Games, there will be activities in front of Kresge Auditorium for children including face-painting, balloon artists, magicians, clowns, jugglers, a moonwalker and maze.
