Field Trip Day is the perfect opportunity for area schools to promote health and wellness and athletic competition. The experience includes a variety of fun games for the students, a balloon artist, in-game recognition and much more.

Last season over 1,000 students across 11 local schools attended the Gators’ matchup with Gardner-Webb.

Students can bring their own bag lunch and school busses are welcome as there will be parking available on site.

“We are really looking forward to having Field Trip Day again at the O’Dome this year. Any opportunity we have, we want to connect and build relationships with the Gainesville community, and this day is really special because it allows us to welcome students from all over the area into our home. The arena was rocking last season and we look forward to playing in front of an energetic bunch again on November 18,” head coach Cameron Newbauer said. 

The Gators kickoff their 2019-20 campaign Wednesday, Oct. 30 when they host Valdosta State for an exhibition matchup at Exactech Arena at the Stephen C. O’Connell Center.
