Team Gear

We will be assembling Team Gear on Wednesday June 5th from 10 a.m. – noon in the TCA office.

We need volunteers to help assemble orders. Please sign up on the JotForm to help

Parade of Athletes

We need a couple creative people to come up with ideas to show our Team spirit as we parade into Legacy Arena on Saturday evening during the opening ceremonies.

In the 2022 Games, we carried purple pom poms, mini–AZ State Flags, and helium balloons in the shape of cactus (these were a showstopper).  A banner will be provided for us.

We plan to bring a T-shirt launcher to shoot Team AZ and DNAZ shirts into the bleachers. In addition, we hope to get approval for a bubble machine that will pump out thousands of bubbles as we walk around.

If you would like to spearhead the effort to help us find creative ideas to wear, shake, rattle, and/or light up contact Tila at
