ATTENTION ALL COACHES, PLAYERS & SPECTATORS - PLEASE READ & FOLLOW THESE IMPORTANT PARKING RULES.
COACHES & TEAM MANAGERS - PLEASE REMIND YOUR PLAYERS AND PARENTS TO RESPECT THE DIRECTIONS OF CRANBROOK SECURITY PERSONNEL & VOLUNTEERS.

Vandalism of Cranbrook property may also lead to forfeiture of all remaining games for the responsible player(s)’ team. Please remind your players of the importance of respecting the property of others while at the Lax Jam. We appreciate your cooperation with this important request.
