If you received A parking pass from us and plan to drive onto campus on the day of rivalry:
You must have BOTH your pass and a PHOTO ID to be permitted onto the Yard.
Coaches with parking passes should head directly to Campus Gate 1 (GPS: 52 King George St.) at the end of King George Street (for Fields #8-18) or to Campus Gate 8 (for Fields #1-7) on Rt. 450 (GPS: Bowyer Rd). Have your parking pass AND driver’s license in-hand and ready to show the guard on duty. *Parking passes are only distributed to College and Club coaches who have pre-registered with Rivalry.
If you're a parent, player, spectator, referee, or coach and plan TO take the shuttle to campus:
You must park at Navy-Marine Corps Memorial Stadium to ultilize the shuttle onto campus. There is a $10 CASH FEE FOR CARS TO PARK AT THE STADIUM (CASH ONLY, no credit cards) but the shuttle service to campus is FREE. The cost for team buses to park at the stadium is $20. Please allow time to park, go through a security screening, and be shuttled to the Yard prior to your first game of the day. The screening process will take place at the stadium before loading the shuttle, so please allow time for this screening as well! Gates will open at 5:30AM. There will be Navy Lacrosse Players at the stadium to direct you and answer any questions you may have.
There are multiple bus stops at each field site on campus, so the bus can drop riders closest to the field they will be playing on. The shuttle service to and from the stadium will be available all day.
If you want to look into other forms of transportation:
If you do not want to take the shuttle, you may try to park at metered spaces downtown and walk onto campus via the Gate 1 Visitor's Center. However, please keep in mind that parking is limited on weekends in downtown Annapolis, and that security lines getting through Gate 1 may be very long as well. Please visit annapolisparking.com for more information on metered parking locations and rates.
You may also choose to Uber/Lyft to Gate 1 on campus, and walk onto the yard through the pedestrian gate at the Visitor's Center, but please keep in mind that security lines getting through Gate 1 may be long! *Reminder that you need a driver's license/state ID to get onto the yard if you're 18 or older. Anyone under 18 without a photo ID must be accompanied by an adult with a valid ID*
