If a concussion is suspected, the athlete will not be able to return to play and the player’s coaching staff on site will be notified.

What happens if there is inclement weather?
- Stadiums have an all-weather surface, and games will not be called on account of the weather. Bring rain gear.
- The Coppell Parks and Recreation Department operates a lightning prediction system at the stadium. This system is designed to alert users that the conditions are favorable for lightning strikes. When the system detects the potential for a lightning strike, the air horns sound an uninterrupted 15-second blast, and the strobe light will activate. Patrons who hear the horn and/or see the light need to seek shelter immediately. When the system no longer detects a threat, three 5-second blasts from the horn will sound and the strobe light will stop working. This is the signal that it is safe to return outdoors.
Will there be Concessions and food vendors at the tournament?
- Food and beverages will be available for sale in the concession area of the stadium. A variety of lunch items, snacks and drinks will be offered both days. We will take cash and Venmo only at the concession stand. A food vender will also be on hand selling food and drinks.
