2020-2021 Athletics Information

August 25, 2020 update - The new state order allowing fall sports to move forward greatly limits the number of spectators at upcoming events for health and safety reasons. Closely following this order will provide our students the best opportunity to enjoy their full fall season.  With this in mind, we have determined that the following number of tickets will be available for purchase by each team member's family.  These numbers were determined by the size of the venue and the number of students taking part in each event.

  • Football, marching band and cheerleading - 3 tickets
  • Volleyball - 3 tickets (please note that the gym must be cleared after each contest, so tickets will be limited to only the varsity or junior varsity match)
  • Field hockey and soccer - 4 tickets
Coaches will be providing additional information about how students' family members and loved ones can purchase tickets online.  

Please note that season passes, senior citizen passes and walk-up tickets will not be available or honored this season due to these protocols.


For anyone who is attending an event, please note that all spectators must follow the safety orders from the Ohio Department of Health — including facial covering and physical distancing rules — or they shall be subject to removal as well as legal responsibility under the Ohio Revised Code.  Please review these requirements before you attend an event and follow them at all times during the event. This will be the key to ensuring our students get to enjoy the season for which they have been working so hard. 


We thank everyone in advance for their cooperation and support of our students.
