Cleaning Between Games
At the conclusions of any contest, the gym will be cleared all fans and personal. If another contest will follow, 25 minutes will be placed on the game clock for cleaning the gym. With 15 minutes remaining on the clock teams can take the floor for warmup and fans will be allowed back into the gym.
The host school will determine where non-active players will be during the game in which they are not playing. Options include being allowed to sit behind bench as managers or being taken to separate location with supervision provided by their respective teams.
Cheerleader and Pep Band will count towards the 25 fans for the team.
Concession stand will be determined by host school.
Host school will determine entry sites for both teams as well as home and visiting fans. Restroom assignments will be communicated by the host school. Please follow all signage and directions at the schools when you arrive.
While this may not be ideal, following these protocols will make the experience at the games more enjoyable than not having any games to attend. Let us do our best to make the season about the student athletes.
