Warm-Up Space

Team warm-ups will be at Nashua High School South. This warm-up field is less than 5 minutes away from Stellos Stadium.

The NHYFSC has reserved 2 busses to transport the teams and coaches to the warm-up field. We will also have a volunteer on each bus to make sure the teams are brought back to Stellos in plenty of time for their game.

Teams need to arrive 1 hour and 45 minutes before your scheduled game time. This timeframe allows for teams to arrive and be checked in at Stellos Stadium prior to heading to the warm-up field.

Teams will be checked in by the region/host staff

  1. If you arrive by bus, instruct the driver to drop the team off at the front of the stadium. The bus driver will then be instructed where to park
  2. If coaches and athletes arrive in separate cars, we will wait for all athletes to arrive before checking the team in.

The high school has 2 other major events happening on Sunday the 18th so no association board members, coaches or parents are allowed to park at the high school. Their parking spaces need to be available for the events they are holding in the school.

MAKE SURE YOU INFORM ANY SPECTATOR COMING TO SUPPORT YOUR TEAMS THEY ARE NOT ALLOWED TO PARK AT THE HIGH SCHOOL.

Thank you for your understanding and cooperation.
