Due to increased security measures in the Akron Public Schools, APS is requiring the Bill Dies Memorial to use walk-through metal detectors at entry gates to enhance safety and security. In addition, large purses, backpacks, large bags and any weapon of any kind (including pocket knives) are prohibited. The safety of our student athletes, fans, and volunteers is our highest priority. We thank you in advance for your understanding and cooperation.
Each school will receive a pass for each wrestler, 3 for coaching staff, and 2 for stat persons. Please do not bring more than 2 stat people, as we will have to charge admission for them. We will have a pass gate for school administrators, wives and bus drivers to sign in. We cannot be responsible for lost passes.
Adults $10.00 per session; Senior citizens (60+) and students $7.00 per session;
All session pass: There will be a 3 session pass sold on Friday night for $25.00 adult, $20.00 senior, and $20.00 kid.
