As many have seen or heard, Governor Reynolds updated the attendance guidelines for high school sports on Thursday. The Assumption Administration will be determining how these new guidelines can be safely incorporated into our athletic attendance for games and contests and will be making an announcement concerning home game attendance early next week.
There will be no attendance changes for this weekend’s (Jan. 8-9) contests. Attendance will continue to be limited to those with school issued gate passes for AWAY games or those that are household members of players and coaches for HOME games.
Dear Knight Nation,
As a result of our Governor’s recent proclamation, we will have significant limitations when it comes to spectators at our high school athletic events this winter. Hopefully these limitations will only be temporary and soon we will have all of our Knights back! In the meantime, we will follow all guidelines that we have been given in regards to hosting events at our facilities and well as when we travel to contests.
Each player is allowed (2) two “Gate Passes” for the game that they will participating in. They will be given these gate passes in advance so they can distribute them to whomever they choose. Fans can only attend the game that their student is participating in. When we have multiple games, we ask that fans leave following their student’s contest and not arrive until their student is scheduled to play. These same procedures will also be in place for away contests.
Anyone that attends will be required to wear a face covering at all times and maintain social distancing from those not normally in your family group. Please do not attend our events if you have any symptoms or if you have been exposed to someone that has tested positive for Covid-19. All in attendance will be directed to their seating areas and are expected to sit where assigned. No one will be allowed to sit directly behind the team benches.
It is with great hope that this will only be a short term protocol for our events and we appreciate your understanding and support. All varsity contests will be live streamed and can be viewed at no charge. More information will be available soon.
Good Luck to our Assumption Winter Sport Athletes!
