Varsity Basketball - Saturday, November 21
Below is the private student ticket link for Saturday’s Varsity Girls/Boys Home games vs Grady High School. We have a very limited amount of tickets so do not wait to purchase. If you try to buy today and the tickets are sold out already, check back later this afternoon or evening –once parents have had time to buy their tickets, Coach Broadwell will add unsold tickets back to this link.
Also-on game days any remaining tickets will be made public on GoFan- you can purchase on the mobile app or on www.gofan.co
NOTE: due to attendance restrictions, CAA passes will not be allowed for entrance into basketball games with the exception of those belonging to families of basketball players or basketball cheerleaders-you will need a ticket.
Remember not to validate your ticket until you arrive at the gate. There will be a marked student section in the stands with spots to stand on—every other row must be empty and all students must wear a mask the entire time. It will be important to follow these rules, otherwise, we will have to clear the student section and only have parents at the games. No one wants that so please everyone do your part so everyone can have fun at the games.
