    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. LWSD indoor venues are set to a maximum of 400 people, including participants and staff – LWSD implementation beginning March 22, 2021
      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. LWSD outdoor venues are set to a maximum of 600 spectators, not including participants and staff – LWSD implementation beginning March 18, 2021
      1. Visiting teams will be given 2 tickets per participant for family members

    When planning a competition, each program will be affected by the following limitations:

    Cross Country Outside Venues

    The competitive venue is the start/finish area.

    Crowding is not permitted in and around the start and finish lines.

    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 via a process determined and communicated by each individual school

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

    ***We will take a phased approach to including home senior students at our varsity events, which will progress as follows, provided all students support and adhere to the safety protocols:

    Week 1 – No senior students admitted; Week 2 – Senior students allowed at V soccer and V football; Week 3 – Senior students allowed at V soccer, V football and V volleyball; Week 4 – Senior students allowed at V soccer, V football and V volleyball

    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.
