hang out in the Extra yard for teachers lounge
(and invite your friends!)

The Extra Yard for Teachers Lounge is a VIP space in Championship Campus reserved solely for teachers and their families. Any teacher with a current teacher’s I.D. can gain entry to the Lounge, and family members of teachers are welcome to join.

In the Lounge, teachers can look forward to hands-on workshop sessions; an Educator’s Alley with expert advice on STEAM and STEM lesson plans, and augmented reality, thermal camera, and virtual field trip demonstrations; and an entire Zen Room with chair massages, mindfulness exercises, and chair yoga exercises to take back to the classroom.   

The Extra Yard for Teachers Lounge will be open on January 6 from 10 a.m. – 6 p.m. Eastern. Because of security protocols for the game, we do ask that you preregister and bring your printed ticket with you.
