    Spectators at Sports Events

    Spectator plan for Phase 3

    LWSD Season 2 Spectator Plan – Phase 3

    It is essential that everyone does their part to keep student-athletes, coaching staff, event personnel, and any allowed spectators safe during this year’s high school sports seasons. 

    In accordance with the Governor’s Phase 3 guidance and in coordination with the Washington State Department of Health, high school sports venues are capped at the following numbers:

    1. Indoor venues are set to a maximum of 400 people per the Governor’s orders, including participants and staff 
      1. Basketball
        1. Visiting teams will be given 2 tickets per participant for family members  
        2. Visiting teams are capped at 25 participants, coaches, and staff members
        3. Home teams will be given a maximum of 4 tickets per participant for family members
        4. Home Team Senior Students will be admitted as capacity and physical distancing restrictions allow 
      2. Gymnastics and Wrestling
        1. All teams will be given 2 tickets per participant for family members
        2. Please note – due to all 4 high schools competing at the same venue, we do not have the capacity to allow student spectators to gymnastics and wrestling
    2. Pools are capped at a much more restrictive rate that allows only participants and coaches within the numbers
      1. LWSD swim meets will be conducted virtually for the first 3 weeks of the season
      2. LWSD will host an in-person swim meet on May-6 for all schools, utilizing Juanita’s Fieldhouse for staging athletes in order to stay under the caps in the pool itself
        1. Please note – due to the restrictive caps, we are not able to accommodate spectators for swim meets

    Spectator numbers may vary at each individual venue based on seating design and physical distancing restrictions.  In order to properly plan for a safe event, the following processes are utilized:

    • Family members will be admitted to both home and away events via tickets issued to participants
    • Home Team senior students must pre-register for basketball via a process determined and communicated by each individual school

    ** Please note there will be no walk-up admission to events

    We will take a phased approach to including home senior students at our varsity events, beginning with the week two games, provided all students support and adhere to the safety protocols:

    All spectators must complete attestations and temperature checks prior to entry, wear a mask, and remain physically distant throughout the event.  If spectators are allowed into the event, there will be no admission cost to attend. 

    General spectator rules for the stadium and gym

    • Spectators will be asked to arrive at designated time only 
    • Spectators will be asked to enter and exit from specified locations
