Where To Stay - Hotels in the area may be working with a local Convention and Visitors Bureau to establish IESA rates for the event. Regardless of where you choose to stay, be sure to tell the person taking your reservation or checking you in that you are attending the IESA Volleyball state finals in case they are offering a discounted rate.

Where to Sit - The host school assigns sections in the stands to be used by the fans of the competing teams in each game. Fans following their team are requested to sit in the stands on the side of the gymnasium where they have been assigned. All seats for fans are unreserved. IESA may reserve some seats at and/or behind the scorer's bench for the officials or news media covering the game.

Appropriate State Finals Clothing - We suggest you wear clothing in school colors to support your team and to help distinguish your cheering section in the stands. IESA By-laws require that all fans attending an IESA state series contest wear shirts at all times they are on the site of the state final event. Shirts must be worn as designed by the manufacturer. Body paint is prohibited - this means spectators and athletes cannot have body paint concealed under their clothing and then remove clothing to display the body paint. Face painting is acceptable and hair can be any color.

Signs, Banners and Noisemakers - IESA By-Laws do not permit the displaying of signs, banners, balloons, and such, at the site of a state final event. Keep them at home. IESA By-Laws do not permit the use of noisemakers at the state final event. Examples of items that are not allowed include, but are not limited to, cow bells, thunder sticks, milk cartons with rocks inside, shakers, whistles, electronic sound making devices, and such. Come to the state final event ready to clap and cheer for your athletes.

Official State Finals Programs - Royal Publishing produces the IESA state finals program and sells the ads that appear in them. Parents, fans and/or the school or school booster club may purchase an advertisement in the printed program - the cost varies according to the size of the ad. Please call (800) 397-5834 for details. Printed state finals programs with team photographs, rosters and other information about the competing teams will be on sale the days of the state finals. They also may be purchased from the IESA office following the conclusion of the state final if there are any still available. The price per program by mail is $7.50 (includes the cost of postage and handling).

Team/Individual Photos - Event Pro Photography is the official photographer of the IESA and will be headquartered inside the school. Before a team's quarterfinal game, a photographer will take individual and team pictures of all participants and immediately produce a sample IESA souvenir photo plaque that contains a picture of the player and the team. Everyone will have an opportunity to purchase it before the game begins at a cost of $35. All orders will be delivered back to the parents by the end of the game. Team-only photo plaques are also available to purchase for $30. A team representative can pre-order photos for the school prior to the state finals by calling Event Pro Photography Monday-Thursday at (309) 689-0299. Orders can be made and picked up at the location where the photographer is set up inside the host school.
