Updated Spectator Capacity 1.12.21

UPDATED SPECTATOR CAPACITY GUIDELINES 

Per the governor’s proclamation on January 8, 2021, we will make the following changes to the spectator seating  capacity. We will still utilize the vouchers that were distributed at the beginning of the winter season. 

Basketball 

*Each athlete will be limited to 2 vouchers per athlete. Senior athletes will get an additional 4 spectators. All  vouchers and additional spectators must be members of the family. Family can include siblings, grandparents,  aunts, uncles, etc. Those additional spectators must sit with your household and remain socially distant from  other households. For those additional four spectators to enter into the game, they will tell the ticket taker the  name of the athlete they are coming into the game under. You will not be given additional vouchers for the extra  spectators. 

Wrestling 

*Each athlete will be limited to 5 vouchers per athlete. All vouchers and additional spectators must be members  of the family. Family can include siblings, grandparents, aunts, uncles, etc. Those additional spectators must sit  with your household and remain socially distant from other households. For those additional three spectators to  enter into the game, they will tell the ticket taker the name of the athlete they are coming in under. You will not  be given additional vouchers for the extra spectators. 

Middle School Basketball 

*Middle school basketball remains unchanged. Each athlete will be limited to 2 spectators per athlete. You will  tell the ticket taker the name of the athlete you are coming into the game under. Spectators must be members of  the family.  

 

UPON ENTERING THE EVENT 

  1. Upon entering, you will wait in the commons area until the game you have access for is starting to warm-up.  Please allow others to leave the gym from the previous game before entering. If you are attending the first game  of the night, you may enter at any time. 
  2. At the conclusion of the game that you have access to, you will be asked to leave the facility immediately. We  will make this announcement frequently and ask that you leave so the next group of spectators may enter. 3. Some individuals may have children playing in the first and last games of the night. In those situations, you  will not be asked to leave. We do ask you to move to the corners of the gym so that the spectators for the next  game can be seated. 
  3. Children must be accompanied by an adult at all times and must sit with an adult during events.   

 

GENERAL SPECTATOR GUIDELINES 

  1. Masks must be worn when you enter the building. The only time that masks can be removed are to eat and drink. If you choose not to follow this request, you will be asked to leave.
  2. Households must ensure at least six feet of physical distance between each group of spectators.
  3. Concessions will not be available as long as the current capacity restrictions are in place. Please make sure you  plan ahead.
