READ THIS...If You're Going to a Lake Park High School Game
- Any non-high school age student attending contests at the high school must be accompanied by a supervising adult. Students arriving without an adult chaperone will not be admitted to the game.
Backpacks and opened outside beverage containers are not allowed in our stadium so please plan accordingly and bring what you need to be prepared for all weather.
Admission of $3 is charged to non-high school age students over the age of five (5) years old.
If you are not being driven home by your adult chaperone, please arrange for your ride to pick you up immediately following the contest in the circle drive in front of West Campus and not in the stadium parking lot. This helps to reduce traffic near the stadium.
