All participants will walk in the parade with Tiger Band that begins at the top of Fort Hill Street.  This parade route comes down Fort Hill Street, turns right onto Williamson Road and then left onto Avenue of Champions, going beside the stadium on the north side.  At the intersection of Centennial Boulevard and the Avenue of Champions, clinic participants will continue on to the Annex at Littlejohn Coliseum to be picked up by their parent/guardian.

There will also be a showcase performance during the clinic while still in Fike Recreation Center.  This is a great time for photos and videos. 

Dismissal of Clinic Participants

  • All of the participants of the clinic will be taken to the Annex gym at Littlejohn Coliseum immediately following the parade. Please plan to meet there following the parade.
  • No participant will be dismissed until all participants are in the Annex Gym at Littlejohn Coliseum.
  • In order to ensure the safety of your child, the spirit squad members will check your wristband (that you will receive at registration) to make sure that you are the guardian who is approved to pick up your child.
  • Do not attempt to get your child during the parade or before the participants enter the Annex gym. This is for your child's safety!

Bagels and fruit will be available for participants during registration.  All participants will receive a snack bag (granola bar, pretzels/chips and bottled water) after the parade.

Meeting Locations
All participants will meet at Fike Recreation Center during the registration period.  Please see our campus map for further details:  http://www.clemson.edu/campus-map/

Participants will be picked up from the Annex Gym at Littlejohn Coliseum.  There will be signs posted.  This will occur immediately after the conclusion of the parade.
