Revised Limited Spectator Policy

The KSHSAA policy has been revised to allow 4 spectators per participant to attend activities beginning January 29th. Additional passes per participant will be distributed as needed. The pass must be shown at both home and away games to be allowed admittance.


Spectators of a HS student are not admitted on a JH only night or vice versa. On a super night where both JH and HS play on the same night, everyone with a spectator pass will be allowed to come and watch the games.


We will continue to stream our activities on Facebook Live.
