Announcements and Important Events
This email serves to provide some important information about attendance at athletic events this upcoming “fall” season, purchasing tickets, health screening, and mitigation strategies.
SPECTATORS AT GAMES:
Per the governor’s current order (last amended on February 17), 25 spectators are permitted at indoor athletic events and 250 spectators at outdoor athletic events. This was a change from the previous order indicating two spectators per participant (without a 250 limit). Some LCPS contests with larger rosters (ex, varsity football games with large football and cheerleading rosters) will now not be able to accommodate two spectators per athlete. To that end, LCPS is providing the opportunity for one ticket to be purchased per fall athletes at Home athletic contest only. The admission price is $6.00. The total ticket limit is 200.
LCPS has secured Ticket Spicket, a contactless ticket vendor for all athletic events. The ticket purchasing experience should make the purchaser feel comfortable; the process is more efficient, contactless, and secure. Cash will not be accepted at the gate; all tickets must be purchased through Ticket Spicket. Ticket Spicket has an app available for free download (search Ticket Spicket) to your smartphone devices, or you can access it through your web browser at https://ticketspicket.com. Tickets can be purchased through the app or online. Click “Buy Tickets” and search “John Champe High School Leesburg, VA.”
One ticket is available for purchase per athlete using a redeemable code. The code is your athlete’s student ID number. Once a ticket has been purchased with the student ID, no more tickets can be purchased for that game with that student ID. Additional tickets will become available for purchase for ANYONE on the day of each game at 12pm (noon) by using code LCPS2021. Tickets can be purchased in advance, as the whole season is currently available for purchase.
If the game is canceled, refunds will be issued through Ticket Spicket. Contact firstname.lastname@example.org. If a ticket is purchased, but the purchaser does not attend the game, refunds are not issued. If a game is rescheduled, tickets will automatically be redeemable for the rescheduled date.
AT THE TICKET GATE:
Follow signage, as some schools may be using different ticket entrance for home and away fans. The purchaser should have the ticket showing on their phone. Do not “tear” your ticket on your phone until you arrive at the gate and the ticket manager instructs you to do so. Additionally, all spectators/officials/visitors/media will have to complete an online health questionnaire prior to entering the contest. The questionnaire is available at https://tinyurl.com/LCPSAthleticsSCREENING and should be filled out prior to walking to the gate. A green check mark marks the end of the questionnaire. Please have that screenshot available and ready to show on your phone as well as the purchased ticket. Every individual person must complete the questionnaire.
HEALTH MITIGATION STRATEGIES:
As well as completing the online health questionnaire, other mitigation strategies will be in place. Follow facility signage for locations to sit. Most schools will have bleachers marked signifying where each person needs to sit. Those locations are distanced from one another. Family members in the same household can sit at the same bleacher location.
All spectators, coaches, athletes, and school officials need to wear masks at all times throughout the athletic contest.
All spectators are to remain socially distanced at all times (in the bleachers, walking throughout the venue, in the restroom, etc).
Multiple games on the same night (ex, F/JV/Var volleyball, field hockey, and F/JV football)—fans will be instructed to leave the facility immediately when the contest finishes. Spectators for the next game will be waiting outside the stadium (or In the hallway for volleyball). Plan to arrive immediately before the game if you do not want to be waiting outside the venue. Once the facility is vacated by the prior game’s spectators, the next game’s spectators can enter.
Because cross country meets are not on LCPS property – no spectators will be allowed due to venue restrictions.
Because golf meets are not on LCPS property – no spectators will be allowed due to venue restrictions.
All contests in LCPS stadiums and main gymnasiums will be broadcast live on the NFHS Network. In the same manner as winter sports, subscriptions can be purchased at http://www.NFHSNetwork.com. Please see the following announcement regarding the NFHS Network that was sent to winter athletes’ families. These instructions remain the same for our “fall” sports season.
John Champe High School is proud to announce that we have partnered with the NFHS Network to broadcast our Champe athletic events LIVE. That means that if you or family members can’t make it to the game, the live action can be watched from anywhere on your phone, tablet, computer or smart TV.
LCPS has been working for the last year on the partnership with the NFHS Network to broadcast live all LCPS athletic contests. This process started well before the current COVID pandemic, but obviously the NFHS Network now provides a platform for LCPS families to watch any sporting event in the county during the current pandemic and spectator restrictions. Even after COVID, the NFHS Network will be a great way to watch games when you cannot attend or for out of town family and friends to watch games. Anyone with a subscription can watch any of our athletic contests.
