Spring Sports Spectator Guidelines

Currently MDH & the MSHSL are requiring the following for spectators for spring events:

  1. Masks & Social Distancing

  2. Pre-Registration for events

If you plan on attending a home spring sporting event, we are asking that spectators pre-register online. The links to pre-register are found on the following website underneath the specified event:

For home events, you will notice a little ticket button below the event you're looking at attending and you can click on that which will bring you to the website to pre-register. I will also be posting pre-registration links for away games to this site as well.
