Magnolia & Bayou Team Notice

In this special edition: Quiet Rooms

In an effort to make sure that our regional events accommodate everyone, both the Magnolia Regional and the Bayou Regional will have quiet spaces and a quiet room available for your use. These spaces can be used by teams, mentors, volunteers or public as long as they are used appropriately.


Quiet Space: Volunteer Lounge when not in use for meals

This space is always supervised by the volunteer coordination staff or an adult volunteer. A team adult is not required for a minor to use this space.

Appropriate Use Examples:

  • Overstimulation, headache, conflict resolution, approved meetings

How to access:

  • Request access to this space at pit admin. Pit administration staff will decide if the access is appropriate and if an adult mentor or guardian is required to escort a team member to the space.

Quiet Room: minors must be accompanied by a team adult and one volunteer assigned by our volunteer coordinator

Bayou Regional - This is a locker room off the hallway near the Machine Shop

Magnolia Regional - This is a mobile trailer accessible from the loading dock area

Appropriate Use Examples:

  • Medical need for quiet or less stimulation (i.e. Migraine headache, dehydration)
