Shout Outs

Frequently Asked Questions

Please review our Frequently Asked Questions to have an enjoyable event.

How much is the registration fee and what does it cover?

The registration fee for the 25th Reunion Package is $119.97 for Classmates and Adult Guests, $47 for Kids age 13-20 (Our link in the chain class!), and $19.97 for Kids 12 & under. This fee include all paid events as well as to cover the administrative cost associated with planning the reunion, but not limited to, ancillary tailgate costs, programs, usage fees, signage, printing, and nametags. Help the reunion committee by making plans early.

Can I pay with cash or check?

No, to keep efficient processes, we are only accepting credit card transactions - cash and check are not accepted.

What is the processing fee?

The processing fee covers the credit card transaction fees.

When does registration close? What are the late registration fees?

There is no late registration fee but we do ask you to help out the reunion committee by making your plans early! You have the option to make payments over time, the earlier the better!

What is the refund policy?

Refunds will be dealt with on a case-by-case basis minus the processing fees. Refund requests will be determined by the Reunion Committee.

What identification do I need to gain access to the Yard?

Anyone 18 years of age or older must present a valid, unexpired original REAL ID Act compliant U.S. government photo ID card (e.g., state issued driver's license or identification card); or an original, unexpired passport to enter USNA grounds.

Where do I buy game tickets in the class block?

Purchase tickets in the Class Block directly from NAAA with the Promo Code 1997 and this link: Click Here.

Can I park in The Yard?

Getting your vehicle onto, and parking in The Yard is very, very challenging at this point given the various ongoing construction projects underway.  We do NOT recommend planning on parking in The Yard.  Most access will be via foot at Gate 1 or via shuttle bus.

Can I park at the stadium during game day?

In short, No. Parking will NOT be sold for the stadium (Blue and Gold) lots on game day. A season parking pass can be purchased by season ticket holders. Satellite parking is available at the Harry S Truman Park and Ride, located on Harry S Truman Parkway just off Riva Road. Shuttle service begins five (5) hours prior to the start of the game. Service continues throughout all games, ending approximately two (2) hours after each game's completion. The shuttle runs approximately every 20 minutes, and drops off and picks up at the Navy Ticket Office at the Class of 1953 Pavilion. Handicapped Parking: For access to handicapped parking, you must have a season parking pass. In order to obtain handicapped parking, one must purchase a season parking pass as well as have a state issued handicapped parking placard or license plate. Please see the NAAA Football Parking & Fan Guide at www.navysports.com.

Does the Stadium have a Clear Bag policy?

Yes! Navy has adopted A Clear Bag Policy already enacted by many schools around the nation. This policy was adopted to enhance public safety and make stadium access more efficient.

Permitted Items: Clear bags no larger than 12"X12"X6", small clutch purses no larger than 4.5"X6.5", blankets, seat cushions, diaper bags, umbrella strollers, and video cameras. All items will be inspected.

Prohibited Items: see the full list at navysports.com

How will COVID affect our reunion?

We don’t anticipate any issues with COVID, but will follow the COVID guidelines in effect in Anne Arundel County https://aahealth.org/coronavirus-covid-19-guidance/ and the Superintendent’s guidance https://www.usna.edu/COVID-19/index.php.

What if I'm married to a classmate, do we both have to pay the Classmate registration fee?

Yes. Since we base the registration fee on the number of classmates attending the reunion to cover the fixed costs for the entire weekend, we ask that all classmates pay their fee. Each classmate will need to create their own registration. This ensures each classmate has a proper name tag. Thank you!

Our Committee

If you see any of these committee members, please give them a huge thank you as they have given of their time and efforts to help make the event fun and enjoyable for everyone!
