Thank you for your interest in Wichita HOT! We offer two types of tickets to this event:
If you are planning on attending hands-on-training, we strongly recommend hydrating ahead of time and showing up well rested. Many of the classes will include live fire exercises and scenarios which are physically strenuous. All participants in hands-on-training must submit a Signed Live Release Form during check-in. Details about specific classes can be found in their descriptions including PPE requirements and class locations.
You can order your official Wichita HOT t-shirt right from our online store. The shirts Gildan 50/50 blend shirts in Military Green. They feature the flying monkey on the back and the HOT logo on the front, left chest. We have them available in short or long sleeve up to 4XL. There are two ways to get your shirt this year, either have it waiting for you when you check-in for the event or have it shipped directly to you in September when they become available. There may or may not be shirts available for purchase at the event this year so please order yours ahead of time!
