OAC allowing limited fans at sporting events

Heidelberg Athletics is excited to welcome fans back to our campus as part of the revamped attendance protocols set forth by the Ohio Athletic Conference that took effect on March 8.  The policy states, in part:
The home team shall receive two admissions per dressed student-athlete and coach   The visiting team shall receive two admissions per student-athlete and coach per established Travel Squad Limits.
Admissions will be managed by a pass list at the gate.
Other than the pass list, there shall be no spectators allowed at events, including additional family members, fans or students.
Home campuses have the autonomy to reduce these limits per institutional discretion, but not exceed them, with any reductions made to the visiting team.

Anyone exhibiting any of the symptoms of COVID-19, including -- but not limited to -- fever, aches, difficulty breathing, a new loss of taste or smell, should stay home.  

Below, you will find sport-specific information for individuals with passes for games at Heidelberg.  If additional questions arise, please contact Jeff Garvin or Kayela Tidrick.
