Summer Camps

Registration has opened! We are excited to think about July already, too.

Girls

SCVA JNQ

Our schedule for Day One has been posted. You can follow the tournament on AES. We are in a three team pool on Friday morning. We play at 8 AM and 9 AM on court 59 in the Los Angeles Convention Center. Our pool will be followed by a crossover match.

Traffic 

From the SCVA:

There is a Muscular Dystrophy walk scheduled for this Saturday, April 18th. The event will restrict access on Figueroa St. (both directions) from Chick Hearn Court to Venice Blvd. starting at 6am. Sidewalks will still be open for pedestrian traffic and streets will reopen by 11am at the latest. 

 

Those travelling in on the 110 and 10 freeways will have normal access to all Los Angeles Convention Center parking garages, however, westbound street traffic should access the South Hall garage and LA LIVE Way via Venice Blvd. They will not be able to cross at Pico. Attached is a map of those closures for your reference. I would suggest sending an email blast just so parents/spectators are aware and should give themselves more time to get to Los Angeles Convention Center next Saturday morning.
