Coaches will arrive to Colorado Springs on Thursday, February 6. The Clinic will start at 6:00 PM; however, the first session will be off OTC grounds, so plan to arrive at the OTC by 3:00. The Clinic will end Saturday, February 8, at 9:00 PM; however, coaches typically spend the night and depart Sunday morning.
2. Can I request a roommate?
When you go through the registration process, you will be asked if you have a preference of who you would like to room with. We will do our best to honor your requests, but we cannot make any guarantees. There will be 2-3 people per room in the dorms at the OTC.
3. What if I don't get my travel itinerary submitted by January 25?
