Participants should wear their wristbands around their wrists at all times. The bands are good for entry into the ISU dining centers, special events, and for the shuttle bus service. Participant wristbands were issued at housing registration to team coaches for them to distribute to their team members and guests. Broken wristbands can be replaced free of charge at your conference desk. Bring the broken wristband with you to exchange it for a new one.

All dining centers operate on an all-you-care-to-eat basis. Please only take what you can eat in order to avoid waste – start with small portions; you can always go back for more. No food, beverages, or dishes are to leave the dining centers. Persons who aren’t wearing wristbands or haven’t purchased meals are not permitted in the dining centers. Shirts and shoes are required in all dining centers.
