The Sacramento State Aquatic Center would like to welcome everyone to the 2017 WIRA championships. Below is information for teams, parents, guests and boosters. The WIRA championships will be held on Lake Natoma at the Nimbus Flat State Park. We are fortunate to have such an amazing venue and ask that everyone respect and follow State Park rules and guidelines.
Nimbus Flat the State Park:
There will be no spectator parking in the State Park on Saturday or Sunday. All spectators will be sent to the event parking lot. We will have the Park & Ride as the drop off area. The shuttle busses will be running and drop off directly in the State Park at the finish line area. Parking at overflow is $10.00 CASH ONLY.
Admission is $10 per person, per day. CASH ONLY. General Public, parents, boosters, alumni and family must pay admission to be admitted to the park. Athlete wristbands will only be accepted on uniformed athletes. If an athlete wristband is found on someone other than a uniformed athlete the wristband will be cut off and the athlete will not be permitted to get another wristband. This same rule applies for coaches, riggers and trainers.
How to get to the Event Parking
Directions from Highway 80: Heading West from Auburn or East from Sacramento or San Francisco take the Sierra College Blvd. exit (in the City of Rocklin) and turn South on Sierra College Blvd. In about 6 miles Sierra College Blvd. becomes Hazel Ave., continue South through the town of Orangevale and finally across the American River, turn right onto Tributary Point Drive, follow signs into overflow parking. To State Park:

Overflow parking is $10.00 per vehicle and is located at the Hartford & Health Net buildings. CASH ONLY. A free shuttle will pick up at the Hartford & Health Net buildings and will drop off in the State Park at the finish line tent. The shuttle buses will run all day until 30 minutes after the last race. The shuttle does NOT pick up at the fish hatchery. State park passes will be honored at event parking.
No one will be allowed into the State Park, this includes dropping off athletes or supplies. We do provide the lot outside the State Park (Cal Trans Park & Ride) for loading and unloading. There will be customer service carts to help transport items and people into the event from this location. Please note that carts are not for athletes, customer service carts are for general public. If dropping supplies for team hospitality, you may unload in the Park & Ride and the carts will help you to your tent. Vehicles may not be left unattended in the Park & Ride. Carts are not permitted to transport guests to the overflow areas.
Team Tents & Private Shade Tents:
Each team may rent a tent along the finish line area and paying the fees. There are no private shade tents allowed along the finish line or in the boat storage area.
