– WVSSAC Rules – This basketball season is going to be a season like no other. Due to the COVID-19 rules of the WVSSAC, we have to severely limit the number of spectators for our home games due to the size of our fitness studio. As a result, each athlete has a limited number of tickets available for their parents, household members, and grandparents. The athletes were informed about ticket allocations and purchase procedures.
1. Basketball tickets are not available to the general public for the 2021 season. 2. People from different households must have three free seats and / or one empty row between them in the stands. 3. Masks MUST be worn by all spectators. 4. After the game is over, individuals will be asked to leave the game. 5. Games will be broadcast live on preston-k12.wvnet.edu/aurora.
We understand your frustration with these rules. However, they are set up by the WVSSAC for the safety of athletes, coaches and spectators. We ask for your support and patience as we move through this basketball season.
