Governor Kim Reynolds has announced changes that allow for more spectator seating at all winter sports events. Belmond-Klemme announced how those changes will be implemented:
• Every player, coach, and cheerleader will continue to get two spectator passes.
• If a parent, parents or legal guardian comes to an event with siblings of the household of a player, coach, or cheerleader, they can all attend. (There is a $5 admission charge for each person without an activity pass).
• If the family is split between two households, each household may use one of the passes and all members of each household may attend the event.
• However, if the pass is given to someone outside of the household, only the two individuals with the pass can gain admission to the event. They can not bring family with them as they do not live in the household of a player, coach or cheerleader.
The announcement concludes: “Understand that each school district has unique situations that they must face and we at B-K will respect and follow other schools policies when visiting their school.” The B-K Facebook page often has information on the rules at each school before an away game.
The Top of Iowa Conference has established further conference-wide guidelines:
• The lanyard pass must be worn at all times. There will be no entrance to a game without a lanyard pass.
• To cut down on interaction with the ticket takers at high school events, please try and bring exact change. General admission will be $5.
• Conference passes will be honored for free admission but must be used with the lanyard pass. Administrators will not need a lanyard pass.
• When your child’s game is over, you will be asked to leave as soon as possible. Capacity is limited due to social distancing guidelines.
• Each school will have designated areas for visiting and home teams to sit. Please adhere to this seating arrangement. Players must sit with their team or with their parents if social distancing is possible and the parents are eligible to stay for another game.
• Spectators should arrive just before the scheduled start of their child’s game to decrease congestion.
• Family groups should keep at least six feet between other family groups.
• Masks will be required for entrance and must be covering your mouth and nose while in attendance.
