Athletics Update 3/16/2021

In light of Governor Inslee’s most recent announcement moving us into Phase 3, we will be allowing additional student athletes and family unit spectators at sporting events.  

Beginning March 18th, the following spectator guidelines will be in place for Season 1: 

All student athletes will be able to invite 4 family unit spectators 
(parent/guardians, grandparents, siblings) for HOME events only as space allows. No visiting spectators.  The only exception is cheer/dance/drill can only invite 2 family unit spectators (parent/guardians, grandparents, siblings) to football because cheer/dance/drill athletes have more events to be able to bring all family members over time as spectators whereas football athletes have only 2 home events. To get your family unit members on the pass list, you should work with your coach prior to each event. 

Family unit spectator reminders: 

  • Be on the pass list (work with your coach) for each event
  • Complete an attestation and be able to show it was completed to event staff 
  • Arrive up to 30 minutes prior to game start time and be patient as we process all the required screening 
  • Remember to wear a mask and maintain social distancing with everyone other than your family unit while in line waiting to be screened in AND while seated in the stands/bleachers 

We are excited to continue our Season 1 and we thank you for being so gracious and adhering to our COVID mitigation practices as you have visited our facilities.  We hope student fans and extended families are enjoying the livestreaming! 

High School Athletics Return to Play Plan and KingCo League Safety Guidelines

Posted on February 16, 2021

As we approach the start of KingCo season one for fall sports, we want to make you aware of the parameters for this season. We are currently in Phase 2. We do not yet know what Phase 3 metrics or guidance are. These guidelines are subject to change.

  • Please read our Return to Play plan 3.0 at your school’s athletics page (IHS, LHS, SHS) and our KingCo league safety guidelines.
  • The Governor has set a maximum group size of 200 (or 25% of allowed group size per the fire code whichever is lower) for all gatherings involving K-12 sports. This 200 limit includes all athletes, coaches, officials, medical personnel, etc. Therefore, there will be no student spectators at our fall sports. 
  • Whenever possible, we hope that our parents will transport student athletes in family groups to and from the games.
    • Should you choose to drive a student athlete who does not live in your home we strongly encourage you to wear masks the entire time and to keep the windows rolled down.
  • We will welcome one parent or guardian who is already listed in Skyward to attend varsity games.  We will assess the time and staff necessary to expand this parent/guardian provision to sub-varsity games and expand if time and human resources allow us to do so.  Parents and guardians will complete an attestation before entering the facility. This attestation will be their “ticket” and there will be no fee. In some instances, we will abide by the rules of the facility we rent. This may mean that no parent/guardian spectators are allowed in some spaces. We thank you for your understanding.
    • All parents/guardians will be required to follow our state and local COVID protocols by sitting 6 feet or more away from others and by wearing a face mask at all times.
    • The parent/guardian must enter at the designated locations.
    • If anyone does not abide by these guidelines, they will not be allowed to enter.
    • If anyone refuses to follow the guidelines once they have entered, they will be asked to leave.
  • There will be no food or drink allowed and there will be no concessions at this time. Leave your food and drink in your car for after the game.
  • There will be no leaving and re-entering the facility. Once you are in, you are in. You may leave at any time, but we cannot staff these events with enough people to do a second round of attestations.
  • Because we can only have 200 total people in one area for one event, our ADs and building principals will monitor group sizes closely. Anyone who is not absolutely necessary for the safe running of the event may be denied entry if we have hit the 200 (or 25% capacity for our indoors spaces whichever is lower) total. We hope to avoid this through careful planning, but we want to make you all aware of the maximum allowed now in the event we cannot let you enter.
  • Because of these limits, it may not be possible to have cheer, dance or drill in-person at all events. ADs and ACs will work with those coaches and advisors to determine when virtual performances may work and when and where in-person activity can occur without exceeding the maximum number of people allowed.

Thank you all for your patience and understanding as we do our utmost to provide some form of in-person activity for our student athletes. We will do our best to communicate updates and changes in a timely fashion should any guidance from the Dept of Health, the Governor, SKCPH and/or WIAA be re-issued again.
