Spray tanning will not be allowed backstage accept by the host tanner. Our tanner is trusted by the OCB and the promoter, they take the utmost pride in the athlete's look for stage. We highly recommend you use them for tanning services. No loud music will be permitted, as this inhibits the other athletes from hearing when their number is called.
We ask that everyone backstage respectfully conduct themselves in a manner that is professional and supportive so that everyone has a chance to hear their number and the expeditors are not struggling to get the athletes lined up.
Competitor Prep Area
It is recommended that athletes bring their own bands, light weights and mirrors to the show. Do not get tanner on the walls, floors or seats. We need to have respect for the facility and leave it as clean as it was before we arrived.
