    There's some info in this packet USASF sent to coaches:

    So from reading the PDF, is it for sure that a USASF issued park hopper will get me into all three days, PLUS finals?
    If so, where do I purchase one?

    The pricing structure for Monday makes no sense, I have more access with a $30 session ticket then I would with a $40 admission ticket?

    The $30 ticket guarantees you get to see your team, but not anyone else's. I think that's the whole escorting people in and out before and after a team.

    I don't get how they'll verify that you're a friend of someone on, say, Cheetahs though to get into the priority section.

    Hmmm, that isn't how I read that. "Seating access" to me implies a seat during that particular session. I am guessing that they will have the "escorting" for a particular team available to those that have a hopper pass and didn't manage to get a seat.

    Seems like there should be someone at this point from USASF that could explain how the logistics of this are going to work. My questions would be:

    - How limited will the session tickets be? They must have a number. If the seating capacity is 5000 (some are obstructed, so maybe a little less), how many session tickets will be made available vs. seats that will be available to those with a hopper?

    - Will any priority be given to session tickets over hopper passes? Or will it be on a first come basis?

    (I am actually taking the year off, but I know several parents that are concerned about how this is going to work)

    Earlier in the packet, this is what it says about the fan viewing area:

    A $40 ticket gets you in to the WWoS, into the Josten's, the awards, and the fan viewing area for your team.

    A $30 session ticket gets you into the seating area of the Field House so you can (try to) get a seat and be a spectator for the whole session. But you have to pay $30 for each session. So yes, you have more access with a $30 ticket.

    You're right. That's weird.

    ETA: I messed up in my first post. I meant the $40 ticket, not $30.

    That has to be backwards. The only difference is that for $10 less you get (to try and get) a seat.

    At this point you can only get the park hopper at celebrity hall next week.

    The only logical explanation I can think of is that they are hoping everyone will just spend the $90 to get all three sessions as opposed to the $4o ticket that really just gets them into Jostens. Other than that I have no idea, if someone just wants to see a division in Jostens it would make more sense to just get the $30 ticket for a session.... really weird.

    Yeah seriously. There's literally no reason to get the $40 ticket. At all. Makes no sense.

    If we utilize "fan seating" does that mean we lose our seats to watch the other teams in the division? (Assuming it's crowded to capacity in the Milk House LOL!)

    Okay so I just want to make sure I understand this right so sorry for being ultra annoying. So for monday we have the option to buy either the 40 dollar ticket which gets you into the Jostens for all day OR the session tickets for just the milk house. Please correct me if i'm wrong. And do we know a for sure date for which day we can buy Monday tickets? I called USASF today but I got a voicemail.

    The $30 gets you into almost everything all day and one session in the milkhouse. You get the option to sit in a seat (if there are seats available).

    $40 gets you into everything but the milkhouse and then you get to go into the priority seating for your kid at the milkhouse. But you don't get to sit in a seat.
