Superintendent's Message: Welcome Back Jimtown!
Jimtown Athletics React to COVID-19
With the COVID-19 pandemic upon us, things change frequently. This truth cannot be ignored as we work together to slow the spread of the virus. Jimtown Athletics will strive to reduce viral spread while still trying to provide opportunities for our kids to enjoy the wonderful benefits of Education-Based Athletics. The message is very simple: if you want to play….if you want to have a season, we have to do our part to provide a bubble of safety for our athletes.
Tickets to athletic events will be very limited as we enter the school year. Additional information will be published about ticketing as we work with the local health authorities regarding the sizes of venues and mitigation requirements. We can say with confidence that all patrons at events this fall will be required to wear face coverings and practice social distancing. Parents will have the first opportunity to purchase tickets to the events. Beyond that, extra tickets will be sold on a first come first served basis for each event.
We look forward to a great “virus free” fall season. Thank you for your support!
Jimtown Broadcasting Club Will Take Over Streaming Athletics
Jimtown High School is excited to announce that Jimtown Broadcasters Club will take over the streaming of athletic events at Jimtown High School. These students will be guided by Jimtown technical advisor, Steve Williams and also tutored by the longtime voice of the Jimmies, John Osbourne from Broadcastsport.net.
Stay tuned for more information…but Jimtown Football (and eventually other sports including volleyball, basketball, and wrestling) will be streamed live on the internet to IHSAAtv.org. Fans anywhere in the world with an internet connection will be able to see these events live. The games will be in a pay-per-view format on IHSAAtv.org.
Since this is a learning opportunity for our kids and also to support our athletic programs, a small fee will be charged to see the live stream. There is no limit to the number of people that can watch the live streamed games as opposed to paying for an individual ticket for each person that comes to the games.
Thank you for support and GO JIMMIES
