2022 Event Update


We know there are a lot of questions and we will do our best to answer them. The safety of our guests, volunteers, contestants, personnel and staff is a top priority. We have introduced a range of measures to increase safety during our events.

What safety & security protocols will be implemented at the events to help lower the risk of COVID-19 at the Salinas Sports Complex?

We will have hand sanitizing stations strategically placed throughout the facility.

Fans are encouraged to wash their hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds.

Complimentary masks will be available at gates and entrances to any indoor facilities, but feel free to bring/wear your own mask.

The clear bag policy remains in effect. No bags will be checked so please leave them at home.

Will I have to be vaccinated or show proof of a negative COVID-19 test to enter the events?


If you are feeling sick or have symptoms related to COVID-19, please stay home.

Is capacity limited for the events?

Capacity will not be limited for the events.

Will I have to wear a mask while attending the events?

Masks are not required for outdoor events.

There will be people attending with all kinds of opinions and they are all welcome. Please respect your fellow fans.

Am I going to have to sign a waiver to attend the events?


An inherent risk of exposure to COVID-19 exists in any public place where people are present. COVID-19 is an extremely contagious disease that can lead to severe illness and death. Senior citizens and those with underlying medical conditions are especially vulnerable.

By attending the events you voluntarily assume all risks related to exposure to COVID-19 and its variants.

We are incredibly thankful for your ongoing support, patience and understanding. We look forward to seeing you all as we strive to keep the spirit and the traditions of the west alive!
