A new update has been posted for fan policies and procedures at home events for Grace College basketball. The update will be in effect beginning Jan. 5 and will continue until further notice.
Kosciusko County recently transitioned to “red” status, per the state’s COVID-19 data. These changes are a direct reflection of that county update.
All information is subject to change based on state and county guidelines.
Grace’s home basketball games will be streamed online (HD) free of charge at www.gclancers.com/live.
Lancer fans wanting to attend an away game should verify the fan attendance policy on the Crossroads League’s website (www.crossroadsleague.com/cl-covid19-information) prior to traveling.
“We appreciate the Grace senior cabinet for allowing us to have a limited number of fans and employees to attend games,” said Grace Director of Athletic Chad Briscoe. “We must remain vigilant to maintain a safe environment for all fans, and tightening our protocols provides that for all in attendance.”
COVID-19 POLICIES FOR SPECTATORS
All fans will be required to wear masks at all times in the Manahan Orthopaedic Capital Center. The reinforced mask policy includes family groups, who must wear a mask inside the arena.
There will be no medical exceptions allowed for fans to not wear a mask; all spectators will be required to observe these protocols.
Family groups are allowed to sit together, but all other attendees must sit socially distanced. (Family group defined as: mother/father/guardian/sibling/grandparents. Friends, boyfriend/girlfriend, etc. are not considered “family group” and are not permitted to sit in close proximity).
If fans or parents are unable to comply with the updated policy, it will affect Grace’s ability to host parents and fans moving forward this season.
WHO CAN ATTEND HOME GAMES AT GRACE
Each Grace player is given a small allotment of tickets to share at their discretion.
Grace is also allowing a limited number of employees to attend games, which can be done by reserving an online ticket at www.gclancers.com/tickets. These employee tickets are free and available on a first-come, first-serve basis. Once the maximum allowance of tickets for a particular game are reserved, the game will be deemed “sold out” online.
Grace will not allow fans from visiting schools or members of the general public to attend basketball contests at Grace at this time.
No one will be permitted to attend without either a valid ticket (Grace employees) or appearing on the pass list. For those on the student-athlete pass list, ID must be presented to verify each attendee’s identity.
