Winter Spectator Protocols

From High School Athletic Director Chance Young:

Mississinewa Community Schools will work closely with the Grant County Health Department, the IHSAA, and the Governor’s Office to determine the amount of spectators that will be permitted at each of our contests.  These guidelines are based on the current infection rates and spread of the COVID-19 virus in our county. The guidelines will be evaluated on a continuous basis by all parties involved and are subject to change throughout the season.

Seating Limitations:

  1. We will operate at 50% capacity of our gym.  This will be approximately 1400 people.
  2. Our first priority will be to ensure the families of our players will have an opportunity to purchase tickets before the general public.  We will limit the number of tickets each player will be able to purchase.  Visitor ticket sales will also be limited. 

Team and Spectator Requirements:

  1. All athletes (home & visitors) will enter and leave the facility wearing a mask. 
  2. Coaches will wear masks for the duration of the contest.
  3. All spectators will be asked to wear a mask upon entry into our facility as well as keep the mask on for the duration of the contest.
  4. We will not allow any spectators to sit on the first 2 rows of bleachers around the entire gymnasium as we attempt to keep distance from spectators, cheerleaders, players, coaches and officials. 
  5. We are asking all spectators while sitting in the bleachers or moving throughout the facility to maintain social distance from those who are not living in the same household.
