Presale Ticket Info:

Presale tickets will be sold at NDA this week on Tuesday and Wednesday from 10 am to 4 pm and Thursday from 10:00 am to 1 pm.

All presale tickets are $8 (and NDA receives a share of our presale profits).  Student tickets for the student section are General Admission and are for students only.  All other tickets (adults) are for reserved seats in our allotted sections.

All tickets at the St. John Arena Ticket Office are $10, so please purchase your tickets in advance.

Tickets are good for the first DI semifinal game at 6:00 pm and our 8:00 pm DI semifinal game.

Children 2 years old and younger do not need a ticket if they will be sitting on an adult’s lap.

Disability Seating:  Fans should take their ticket to Guest Services for seating accommodations.


Student Bus Info:

NDA hopes to take at least one student bus to the game and there are 50 seats available.  The bus will leave from NDA at 3:30 pm on Friday and return to NDA between 12:00 and 12:30 am.  NDA employees will be supervising the students on the bus trip.  The cost to ride the bus is $10 and this includes the $8 student ticket.  Students need to sign up on Monday (Tuesday at the latest) to ride the student bus and will need to turn in a parent-signed release form with payment by Wednesday.  Students riding the bus should also bring money to purchase food (and/or souvenirs) at St. John Arena as the bus will not be making any stops to eat.

There will not be a student bus for Saturday’s state championship game.


State T-Shirts:

Navy NDA Basketball state tournament t-shirts will be sold this week.  The prices are $15 for long sleeve and $10 for short sleeve.  We would prefer payment when ordering, but students must order their t-shirts on Monday during SFT and lunch in the main office lobby or Tuesday before they leave after testing to guarantee that they will receive their shirts.  If a student orders a shirt she will be required to pay for the shirt.


What happens with a win?

State finals tickets will go on sale immediately after our semifinal game in French Fieldhouse which is to the west of St. John Arena.  NDA fans must have a semifinal ticket stub to be eligible to purchase finals tickets through this sale. The tickets will be sold on a first-come, first-served basis and you probably will not get the same seat you had for the semifinal game. Only cash will be accepted for the finals tickets sale ($8 per ticket). A PA announcement will also be made during the semifinal game to inform fans of the procedures for the finals sale. The state final will be on Saturday, March 14, at 8:30 pm.  Those that cannot attend the semifinal but want to attend the final can purchase a ticket from the St. John Arena box office on Saturday.  Let them know you want tickets in the NDA section.


Good luck to our team, thank you for your support, and Go Eagles!
