Take me out to the ballgame!

We are THRILLED that baseball is BACK and that we have the opportunity to showcase PAA students by singing the National Anthem to open the CO Rockies Game against the Miami Marlins on August 7th!

We want to pack our sections with PAA families and friends! Make memories and support PAA at the same time! A portion of each ticket goes directly to PAA!

The 7th is also Star Wars Theme Night! The Rockies are proud to announce the 7th Annual STAR WARS™ Night at Coors Field! Join in on the fun as the ballpark is transformed with STAR WARS™-themed sights and sounds – making it a night that no Jedi will want to miss!

National Anthem

Participation in the National Anthem is voluntary and limited to 40 students entering 6th-12th grade (MLB Rules). There is no limit on the number of people who can attend the game, and we welcome families to invite as many friends as they like!

All persons singing and attending must purchase a ticket.

More Details for Singing Students

Students will receive tickets for themselves and their families at rehearsals. Students must have their ticket with them when meeting on 8/7 at 5pm at Gate A to enter the park with Dr. Jim. We will be entering with all fans and may be subject to search. New bag restrictions are below. Parents will enter the park and go directly to their seats. Students will proceed with Dr. Jim to the pre-game staging area.

Students will be given a Rockies t-shirt to wear before they sing. Students will be given the opportunity to change, unless they are comfortable putting the Rockies shirt over what they are already wearing.
