Sacramento Republic FC: Any tips for a first timer?

I have been to many, many, many Kings games and Rivercats games.

I noticed the Tower Bridge Battalion in something about the Republic and now I feel the need to check it out.

Any tips for a first timer? I will be with a group ranging in age from 10 to 70, just to keep in mind. Good/bad places to sit? I do want to be somewhat near the Supporter section, but is General Admission a mess? Am I better off trying for upper-level mid-field or mid-level on the end? Do I sit as near as possible to the supporters section or can I enjoy watching them from anyplace?
