SPECTATOR INFORMATION MAIN PAGE


Welcome to the Air Force Nationals spectator website. Here you will find specific information of value to you as someone coming to watch the teams compete. Again, the event is not advertised for security reasons as open to the general public. However, non-competing JROTC cadets, instructors, parents, administrators and others wishing to come to the event as spectators ARE ALWAYS WELCOMED TO ATTEND AT NO ENTRY COST.

There is no assigned seating and you are welcome to sit where you like to watch the event in the comfortable raised seating. With the event being held on a Saturday, traffic in the surrounding streets and highways is expected to be relatively light, however leave in plenty of time to park and get inside the facility.

  • All ineligible, non-competing cadets must wear civilian attire (not in a military uniform).
  • All non-competing cadets must maintain adult supervision at all times while inside the facility.
  • Please do not "wander" the facility - often we have rented only a portion and are not allowed access to other parts.
  • We wish to be welcome guests so PLEASE leave your areas CLEANER than how you found it.

SNI has produced these internet documents below to better allow spectators to attend. All schools looking to improve their drill team or just to watch some of the finest Air Force armed and unarmed drill teams in the world are strongly encouraged to attend.

Below, you will find detailed information for the AF Nationals. This will include things to do, direction information, parking charges that may be charged, etc. Reading through these will allow you to make your trip safer and more organized.
