SPECTATOR EVENT GUIDE

FALL 2020

 

The safety of our student-athletes, coaching staff, community, and visiting school communities is our primary focus as we cautiously return to interscholastic athletic competitions.  The guidelines and procedures outlined in this document will be implemented until further notice, and updated as needed, based on new information and guidance from state and local agencies.  Adherence to each of these guidelines is critical in the success of our return to sport(s) this fall.

Fans/Spectators – Event Requirements

  • Spectators must conduct daily symptom assessments prior to their arrival at the venue.
  • Anyone experiencing symptoms must stay home.
  • Family members must sit together, and remain socially distanced from all other families/groups/spectators.
  • No congregating at any time, on any campus location or venue is permitted.
  • Spectators must wear face coverings at all times.
  • Promote good hygiene and respiratory etiquette at all times.
    • Restrooms will be accessible for hand washing.
    • Hand sanitizer stations will be available.

 

Ticket Information

  • Each athlete/participant in a home athletic contest is permitted two (2) tickets available for purchase by parents/guardians, only.
    • In the event that parents are divorced or separated, additional (up to 2) tickets would be provided.
      • This would need to be communicated to the head coach and athletic office prior to the contest.
    • These tickets would be available for parent(s) of athletes who are in uniform for the designated contest.
      • Example: In the sport of football, the maximum number of athletes permitted to dress is 60. If an athlete is not part of that game day roster, no tickets would be available.
    • No passes of any kind will be accepted.
    • Tickets will not be available for purchase at the gate.
    • Tickets are required for home field hockey, football, soccer, and volleyball contests.

      • Adherence to home contest guidelines is still applicable in these events, including 2 parents per athlete.
    • Tickets may be purchased online, using the Home Town Ticketing link on the athletic website (It is most likely we will not access online tickets for our first few contests of the fall, as we continue to examine the most efficient ticket sales process).
      • All ticket purchasing is done online.
      • Tickets, electronic or paper, will be scanned at the gate/entrance of the event.
    • In the event that online ticket purchasing is not available, alternative methods of ticket sales will be adopted.
    • Away event ticketing procedures will vary, at the discretion of the host school.
