Tournament Info

COVID-19 Updates

CURRENT COVID GUIDELINES:  As of Wednesday, November 17th, The Wisconsin Center is operating at full capacity without restrictions.  This means no mandates on masks or other protocols.  Milwaukee still advises the use of masks especially when in an indoor event BUT they are not required for spectators, players, or coaches.  Third Coast staff will be monitoring the COVID situation all week and through the event.  Please contact us if you have any questions.

NOTE:  Third Coast Sports will follow the most recent State and local requirements regarding COVID-19 safety requirements pertaining to The Wisconsin Center and equipment.  Such requirements may change frequently and we cannot predict with certainty what requirements may be in place at the time Third Coast Invitational takes place.  We urge you to stay informed about travel and facility occupancy limitations in making your plans to attend the Invitational and to be prepared to follow all local requirements while at the tournament.  Any of the information included about COVID-19 safety requirements at the tournament may be changed without notice up to and including canceling the event. We anticipate that masks will be required for all people inside the building playing and not playing.  We anticipate there will be restrictions on spectators in the building.
