Jasper Troupsburg: The Two Fan Per Player Rule

September 30, 2020

JASPER, NY – The Jasper-Troupsburg Central School District, has asked Wlea Radio to post the official statement from the Steuben County Superintendents concerning Covid-era regulations for fall sports and the statement, which is also on JT’s Athletic Webpage:

As of September 29, 2020 ONLY HOME TEAM SPECTATORS will be admitted to any SCHSAA contests. Spectators must wear masks at all times on school grounds unless socially distanced and seated, which means upon exit from car to seating area and whenever standing and moving. Anyone entering the premises will be screened and temp checked, as well as required to follow directions as posted and/or announced. The spectator sideline will be marked to note socially distanced seating areas.

This limited spectator privilege may change at any time, state and county regulations must be followed during the Covid-19 Pandemic. Check back to this page often to verify the most current factual information, which will always contain a date. Should we make it to sectionals, the possibility of no spectators at all for either team is on the table, stay tuned right here.

JT will be using a ticketing system for this spectator attendance beginning with the first home game for modified soccer teams and the second home game for varsity cross country and both varsity soccer teams. Senior Recognition will be held at the first home varsity soccer game/XC meet with spectators chosen by our senior Wildcats. Each senior will be given tickets for their guests, meaning spectators for senior night will be restricted to just the seniors’ chosen guests. This special “Class of 2021” ticket must be shown at the gate in order to enter the soccer complex. No ticket, no entry, no exceptions. Thank you to the teams and their families in advance for allowing this special recognition to be attended by our senior athletes’ families as follows:

Boys Soccer October 6, Soccer Complex 6 pm, game starts 6:15 pm

Cross Country October 6, HS Track 4:45 pm, meet starts 5 pm

Girls Soccer October 15, Soccer Complex 6 pm, game starts 6:15 pm

Beginning with the second varsity soccer home game or XC meet–and the first game of the season for our modified soccer teams–there will be a limit of 2 spectators per athlete. Every player/runner on each team will be given 2 tickets for use as they and their family decide. This pass will be used for the remainder of the season. Tickets must be shown at the gate in order to enter the soccer complex. No ticket, no entry, no exceptions and there will be no re-entry if a spectator leaves the site during the event. Plan ahead and be prepared.

Thank you for your full support of allowing the athletes to have practices and games, even if all of us cannot watch them in person. The kids need this opportunity and we adults must support them during these difficult times. A neighboring county recently shut down all youth athletics in public parks due to violations of regulations mentioned on this page. We certainly do not want to be the reason our kids can’t play, so please work with us through these pandemic rules.

Details about possible Live-Streaming of games or meets both home and away will be posted right here, if that option becomes permissible and possible.

Share this information with friends, family, and neighbors so everyone knows spectators are extremely limited, admission is by ticket only, and no spectators are allowed to travel to other schools for games or meets.

Thank you for your continued cooperation.
