There will be excitement in the air when student-athletes from throughout the county converge on Petco Park on Wednesday, Nov. 14 to announce where they will be playing sports at the next level and sign their National Letters of Intent.
The doors open at 7 a.m. and the program starts at 8 a.m.
The Hall of Champions’ College Announcement & Signing Event is for any high school senior student-athlete intending to compete in intercollegiate athletics in any sport (except football; football players will have their moment on Wednesday, Feb. 6, 2019).
Each year as many as 500 student-athletes, relatives and friends attend this event, not only excitedly getting a chance to announce where they’re going to school next fall, but to meet others who will be attending the same college.
WHAT: College Announcement & Signing Event to reveal which college/university high school senior student-athletes will attend next fall.
WHO: Anyone who is signing a National Letter of Intent plus anyone who will be continuing their athletic careers at universities that do not require a National Letter of Intent (Ivy League, service academies, Division II, III, NAIA).
WHERE: Petco Park (home of the San Diego Padres). Park in the Lexus Premiere Lot at the corner of Park & Imperial and enter through the main Home Plate Gate on Park Blvd to check-in. From there you will be directed to section 107 for the event. 
WHEN: Student-athletes are asked to check in between 7:15 and 7:45 a.m. The program starts at 8 a.m. and is usually finished before 9:15 a.m. to allow the students to return to school.
WHY: To celebrate local athletic excellence. For many of these student-athletes, this is a highlight of years of practice and competition, earning the opportunity to compete at the next level.
