Food and Concessions

A new venue means new information regarding food and concessions!  Please see the information below and share with your team!

Food and Drink Rules

The Golisano Training Center permits food and beverages only in the hall outside the field and pit area and in the "Turf Area".

Note that this means no food or drink (except water) may be allowed near the playing fields, in the pits, or in the viewing area or bleachers. 

Water is allows in all areas and the building has water bottle filling stations and drinking fountains available for team use.

Eating Area

The Golisano Training Center will have a designated area for teams to gather and eat lunch or snacks.  This area has a "turf" floor that teams can gather in and eat lunches as a group.  This area will not have tables for team use so teams are encouraged to bring blankets and/or camping chairs for use during lunch.


Nazareth Catering will be operating a small concession stand during limited hours (11:00 am - 1:30 pm).  Pizza, hot dogs, prepackaged snacks, and bottled beverages will be available for purchase.

Please be aware the concession stand serving capacity and hours are limited!  Due to this we strongly encourage teams to use the pre-order option below!

A separate cafe facility, Millie's Cafe, on Nazareth campus but outside of the Golisano Training Center, is another "day of" option for food and beverages.  Do note that this is a decent walk on campus from the Ruckus venue.  Please visit their website for more information on hours and location.


Competing teams have the option to pre-order lunches for all or parts of their team. Pre-ordering will remove the need for individual team members to wait in concession lines (the entire team's order will be fulfilled at once) and removes the need for students to pay in person day-of. We ask that one bulk order per team be submitted.

Team lunch pre-orders are strongly recommended this year due to limited concessions availability!

Pre-Order Overview:

  • Cost is $8 per lunch. Please see the order form (below) for additional details.
  • Deadline for pre-order form submission is Friday October 6th
