Pin Trading & Card Trading at Bakersfield Park
We don't schedule a specific time and place for pin trading and card trading, as we have found the kids much more enjoy "trading on the fly"; on Opening Day Saturday at Check-In, before and after the Skills Events, and at the Parade of Teams, etc. We will have Official AAYBA Trading Pins, and Official AAYBA Trading Pin Towels for sale at the Merchandise Tent at Bakersfield Park on Opening Days.

Tailgating at Bakersfield Park
If you've been here before, you know to come early and claim a great spot for the day! Gates will open at 7:00 AM and all parking is first come, first served (no saving spots). The main parking lot will fill up early! Come out and MAKE THIS A GREAT OPENING DAY EXPERIENCE FOR THE KIDS!

Regarding Grills - personal grills must be confined to the parking lot area. Please do not bring grills into the ballfield areas, it's too much of a safety hazard and the Town of Flower Mound will not allow it.
