Disability Services

Hampton Coliseum strives to provide excellent service to all our guests including those guests with disabilities. The Coliseum is an ADA compliant facility. We provide a full range of accommodations for our guests to ensure their safety, comfort and enjoyment during their visit with us. 

Building Entry and Exits

All guests must enter the Coliseum through the front lobby/entrance facing the water fountain. The first door on the left and the first door on the right are equipped with power-assisted opening capabilities.

For patrons with tickets for accessible seating in the Loge section, located on the upper level, the Coliseum provides an accessible Handi-ride vehicle to transport you up the outside ramp to the second level.

For patrons with tickets for accessible seating in the Floor section, located on the lower level, please enter the lobby through the left-hand lobby doors and proceed left to the ticket taking area. You will find a wheelchair ramp beyond this area to access the floor seating section.

For those whose ADA tickets indicate areas other than Floor or Loge, please go to the box office window on the far right of the lobby for assistance.

Service Animals/Guide Dogs

Service animals are welcome in Hampton Coliseum and will rest in the seating area of the individual with a disability, rather than in the aisle. Your tickets will be in the wheelchair accessible seating location so there is room for your service animal. We suggest that the individual have proof of certification or a license for the service animal.


All restroom facilities at Hampton Coliseum are accessible.

Hampton Coliseum personnel have been trained in emergency evacuation procedures to ensure the safe evacuation of all patrons, including those guests with disabilities. Please pay careful attention to personnel instructions during an evacuation.

Seeding Information

AIA North Championships Seeding Chart (updated weekly)

2024 AIA North Color Guard Championships Performance Order Procedure

Performance order within each class will depend on the number of competing units. A final schedule will be released following the second to last contest (March 18, 2023). 

  • For classes with five or fewer units, the performance order will be randomized.
  • For classes between six and twelve units, the performance order will be seeded into halves and randomized and performance time will be released with the preliminary schedule.  If the number of units is not divisible by two, the larger half will be the bottom half. 
  • For classes with thirteen or more units, the performance order will be determined by seeding, and then divided into rounds. Each round will be then divided in half and randomized. 
  • In order to compare scores from different contests and account for growth, the score that each unit receives at its final AIA contest will be scaled by the formula below. This is the final score with any penalties applied, but would not be a score of 0 from a no show. 
  • The scaled scores will be ordered from lowest to highest and then depending on the size of the class will be divided into halves and randomized or divided into rounds.
  • If a unit is reclassified after their final regular-season contest and have no comparable score in the new class (SRA1 to A3 or IRA to IA), the unit will be included in the bottom half.
  • If a unit is competing in any AIA South shows, then the comparable AIA South show from that weekend will be used to determine seeding score.
