Coronavirus update: Sports/tournament information from OHSAA:
We will begin implementing “essential personnel’ and limited spectators as of Wednesday, March 11th, 2020.

Wednesday morning, Athletic Directors will receive a spreadsheet, created by the OHSAA. They will be tasked with filling out their team’s portion relative to immediate family attending. The Athletic Director will send the final spreadsheet to Tournament directors with the names of spectators allowed for each team. The breakdown is as follows:

Coaches +2/person
Players +4/person
Cheerleaders +4/person

While the above groups (Coaches, Players, etc.) are to enter for free per usual, the added number (names will be supplied on the spreadsheet) will still be required to purchase a ticket when they arrive to the venue. These will be the only tickets sold to the event. These should be cash sales.

Any online tickets purchased through HomeTown Ticketing will be refunded. All pre-sale paper tickets should be refunded via their point of purchase.

All tickets purchased at the Field House Ticket Office will be refunded there. Parents who purchased tickets are required to get their tickets refunded, then repurchase at the venue.
