ATTENTION: IN REGARDS TO THE 2020 FALL ATHLETIC SEASON;
NO GENERAL PUBLIC ATTENDANCE AT THIS YEAR’S HOME SOCCER
& FOOTBALL GAMES
We are pleased to have our student-athletes back and competing together, but we will need the support and cooperation of everyone to ensure that our fall sports team continue competing into October and November.
Due to efforts to fight the ongoing pandemic, the State of Ohio and Governor Mike Dewine have mandated that attendance at any athletic event be capped at 15% of venue capacity for both home and away fans. But St. Charles has decided to add an additional safety stipulation to its attendance policy: ONLY members of the FAMILIES of the athletes from both teams will be permitted to attend games this fall. There will be NO TICKETS SOLD to the general public.
You will NOT be able to walk up and purchase a ticket this year at Walt Plank Field. All tickets can only be purchased online pre-game and that online address is being shared with the families of our athletes separately.
As a reminder to the families of our athletes, state mandates prohibit temporary seating of any kind (such as additional chairs or lawn seating). Additionally, congregations in and around our athletic facilities are not permitted before or after the contests.
Games will be cancelled or shut down in the event that attendees do not adhere to these and all State of Ohio safety protocols such as the 15% capacity limit, social distancing and wearing of masks.
In addition, violation of the governor’s order comes with the potential for misdemeanor charges, jail time and monetary fines for both a lack of enforcement and for those who violate the order.
We hope you are understanding of this policy as we ask for your help and cooperation in adhering to these guidelines because it is the right thing to do and allows our athletic teams continue to play.
Our number one priority is the safety of our players, coaches, officials, and spectators. Please keep the opportunity for our student-athletes to have a season at the forefront by following the guidelines set forth by our state leaders and local health department. Thank you for your cooperation!
