Spectators

Athletic Information for Fall 2 Spectators 

The NYSPHSAA and Section VI will allow member school districts the option of allowing up to two adult spectators per home athlete for the Fall 2 volleyball season and two adult spectators per home and away athlete for the Fall 2 football and sideline cheer season. Schools have the autonomy to adjust down if they deem that the footprint of their facilities is insufficient to safely host two spectators for each athlete. 

Southwestern is excited to allow two adult spectators per athlete to attend home volleyball games along with two adult spectators per athlete to attend home and away football games during the Fall 2 season to cheer in a positive manner for our student/athletes. The district will require all the procedures outlined to be followed at all home contests. Any violations may result in adult spectators losing the opportunity to attend the Fall 2 contests. The following procedures will be in place for the Fall 2 season:

  1. Temperature screening will be done prior to entering the facilities
  2. Six feet of social distancing is required in the bleachers during contests
  3. Masks will be required to be properly worn during the entire contest
  4. Specific sections of the bleachers will be designated for each adult spectator group in the gym for volleyball

Adult spectators will not be admitted into the facility until 15 minutes prior to each contest for volleyball and 30 minutes prior for football contests (ex. for a 5:00 JV game volleyball game spectators should not arrive until 4:45). Also, all adult spectators must leave the facility immediately after the contest. Congregating in common areas is prohibited. Finally, CCAA schools plan to continue livestreaming as many contests as possible. Livestream links will be made available on the Southwestern District Athletic webpage.

Again, we are excited to welcome spectators into our facility for the Fall 2 season and look forward to everyone cheering in a positive manner for our student/athletes. If you have any questions, please contact Mr. Salisbury at (716) 484-6840.
