Panthers News · Southwestern Athletic Conference Game Attendance Policies


At this time, spectator admission to SAC events has been limited to two per athlete.  Only those who have received a ticket voucher from an athlete may attend.  If this situation changes, and we are able to allow additional spectators, we will keep you posted.  The following statement has been issued and the policies have been adopted by the Southwestern Athletic Conference (SAC):

To help slow or stop the spread of the coronavirus spectators must adhere to the following guidelines adopted and set forth by the MDHHS, the MHSAA, the Southwestern Athletic Conference, and each individual school of the SAC:

1 – all spectators must wear masks throughout the entire building. Do not remove your mask until you are outside

2 – All spectators, unless members of the same immediate family, must sit the socially distanced 6 ft apart

3 – No food or drink will be allowed in the gym

4 – Spectators are not required to leave the gym between games. However, if you do leave the building, there is no re-entry

5 – Following the conclusion of the games, please exit the gym and the school building immediately. Do not gather on the playing court

6 – Game management reserves the right to remind spectators of these rules and policies. If needed, the contest will be stopped until protocol compliance

Please respect these safety protocols so we can continue to enjoy the privilege of having high school athletics.

Also, please note that due to the size of the gym and the need for social distancing, Watervliet will be emptying the MIDDLE SCHOOL GYM ONLY between games.  We will not empty the high school gym between games.
