Wristbands are offered exclusively to participants of the Beach Blast and MORE Beach Blast Soccer Tournaments at an incredible savings of over 70% off the general admission rate! (Savings is based on admission to the piers and all day admission to the waterparks for 3 days).

If your ability to attend the event is questionable, you may choose to wait and have your coach purchase your event ticket at the Coaches Registration in the Wildwoods Convention Center on Friday night. (Remember, however, that the purchase price at the Coaches Registration will be higher than through advance online purchase.)
