Community, Parents, Athletes, & Staff,
Governor DeWine announced an order that allows Ohio schools to move forward with all fall sports. In that order, is a wide assortment of safety protocols and attendance restrictions that all schools must follow. The purpose of this communication is to inform you of the policies and procedures we will be instituting at our athletic events. We will be the first to say this is not perfect and changes are possible moving forward as we embark on this Fall sports season. The Athletic Department is asking that you are flexible and respectful of these guidelines. Most of the following has been mandated by this most recent state order.
The Athletic Department will not be selling any passes this season. Home passes, sponsor passes, and league passes will not be accepted. Lifetime passes will be accepted if that individual is on an athlete’s ticket allotment reservation. General admission tickets will only be sold in the event ticket allotments are not completely sold out.
Pre-Event Self Symptom Assessment
All players, spectators, and event staff should conduct a self – symptom check before attending any athletic event. Anyone experiencing COVID-19 symptoms as listed by the CDC should stay home.
Tickets / Allotments
The Governor’s order has put restrictions on attendance at sporting venues. This will fluctuate depending on where our athletes are competing along with ticket demand. The order has put a limit on the number of spectators based on the maximum capacity of the schools’ venue. As you can imagine this has created some difficult decisions for schools to make. Our goal is to make sure we take care of our athletes/participants’ families. Coaches will communicate with their teams in advance of contests to notify family on the allotment of tickets for that event. Again the number of spectators allowed is dependent on the venue where the event is being held. Tickets for our home events will be pre-sold during school business hours. Each participant is expected to purchase his or her allotment of tickets before the deadline for each game or those tickets will become available for general admission. The ticket purchasing procedure for away events will be communicated in the days leading up to the event.
Social distancing must be maintained throughout the event. Families should sit together and maintain a minimum of 6ft from other individuals. Families must sit together. Unfortunately, with restrictions being so tight there will not be a student section this fall. Equally, the band will be moved to the end zone to facilitate the demands of social distancing.
Per the Governor’s order you are required to wear a facial covering when attending a sporting event.
Avoid congregating before, during, and after the games. We ask that parents please meet their student athletes outside the stadium or school facility. Spectators should leave the facility immediately after competition ends.
Starting this week all tickets for Home games will need to be purchased during school hours by the players for their families.
We anticipate the following guidelines for our Home games:
Football players (3) tickets per player
Band members (3) tickets per player
Cheer members (3) tickets per player
Volleyball players (6) tickets per player
JH VB players (6) tickets per player
JH Cheer (6) tickets per player
JH FB (6) tickets per player
The away venues will change on a case by case basis.
