Tournament FAQ

 

Do spectators need to buy tickets? 

No! The event is free and open to the public.

 

I want to attend the events at the College and in the town of Chestnut Hill. How can I easily travel between both locations?  

Chestnut Hill College is sponsoring a shuttle that will run from the College to the Chestnut Hill West Station and back. Please check back for a full shuttle schedule!

 

What if there is inclement weather on the day of the tournament?  

In the event of rain, we will still hold the tournament as long as the weather does not interfere with the safety of the players or spectators. In the event of severe weather, the tournament will likely be postponed or canceled.

 

I am planning to drive to the tournament. Where should I park?  

Parking is available at CHC, but it is extremely limited. We strongly encourage you to use SEPTA and take the shuttle to campus.

 

What do I do if I drive but cannot find parking on campus?  

Overflow Parking - If you are unable to find parking on CHC's campus, limited overflow parking will be available at Mount Saint Joseph Academy (the Mount). The Mount is conveniently located just under one mile from Chestnut Hill College. To driveto the Mount, turn right onto Northwestern Ave, which turns into Wissahickon Avenue. The Mount will be on your right. There will be a shuttle running to and from the College and Mount throughout the day.
