Change in Spectators from FCPS – As of now, fan attendance will continue, but for VARSITY ONLY events at HOME. Attendance will be limited to 25 spectators and be free of charge. Unfortunately, we will NOT be able to have spectators for our sub varsity(freshman/JV) events. This decision was made out of an abundance of caution. Our goal is to ensure that our student athletes have the best opportunity to compete in as many events as possible. In order to attend an event, parents please check your emails (Bobby Krause) sent out the Sign-Up Genius links. Please email coaches if you did not receive the link. Walk-ups will not be permitted.
Procedures for Checking In as a Varsity Home Spectator: Ten minutes prior to the scheduled start of the game you can enter the building at Door 8. You will be met at the door by an FCPS administrator who will verify your name and information from the sign-up genius list. Next the administrator will take your temperature and ask you some health screening questions. Once you complete the health screen you will be allowed into the gym lobby in a designated holding area for spectators. It is very important that if anyone has any signs or symptoms of illness that they stay home. Once it is indicated that the gym is ready for your game please take a seat in the bleachers following normal social distancing procedures (sit 6 feet away from other spectators). It is important that immediately after the game has ended that you follow the direction of the FCPS administrator and exit the gym. Your athlete can meet you outside Door 8 or at your vehicle, waiting inside for athletes will not be allowed as we will need time to sanitize the facility and bring in other teams and spectators before the start of the next game. Spectators are also expected to wear masks for the entire time they are inside the building.
Expectations of Spectators: Given the limited number of spectators individual actions of spectators will be greatly amplified. It is our goal to provide a positive and encouraging atmosphere for both teams. The expectation is that any cheering is of a positive nature. Anyone heckling or using negative comments towards the opposing team or officials will be asked to leave.We are excited to have our families in the gym cheering on our Jaguars and look forward to seeing you soon!
