Maine South Hawks, 

Welcome back.  School is underway and the fall athletic season is upon us and that means football, soccer, golf, cross country, swimming, tennis, and volleyball.  It’s an exciting time to come and cheer on our athletes during their competitions. Our athletes and coaches work hard to compete so it is important that we, as spectators and fans, cheer on our athletes appropriately. 

Here are a few reminders for the upcoming season.

Football games for students:  

Backpacks and outside drinks are not allowed into the stadium.  

There are no in and out privileges during the game.  Once you leave you will not be allowed back in.

Cheers/cheering should be appropriate.  Foul language is unacceptable and may result in removal from the game.  

If you throw an object you will be removed from the game with the possible loss of future contests and other consequences.  

For safety purposes, body surfing is not allowed.   

Running onto the field is not allowed and may result in the loss of future contests.
