Spectators will be limited for school sports

Thanks to a significant spike in COVID-19 cases, Sequim school leaders are limiting spectators for indoor winter sports — wrestling and basketball — until further notice, the school district announced Jan. 7.

For Sequim High School contests, no visiting spectators will be admitted while SHS athletes will be given three passes to each game to give to parents and family members. Admission will still be charged, but all spectators must be also given a pass.

Most parents who purchased a season pass or a punch card should receive a pass from their child, SHS representatives said, but staff at games will honor current season passes at the gate.

Students will not be admitted with an ASB card.

Basketball fans can watch livestreamed games on youtube: search “Sequim High School Boys Basketball” for the SHS boys basketball channel and “Sequim High School Girls Basketball” for the SHS girls basketball channel.

“Sequim community we encourage you to continue cheering our teams on by watching the High School games via livestream available to you on YouTube,” school representatives said in a district-wide email last week.

At Sequim Middle School, no visiting spectators will be admitted for varsity games and no spectators will be allowed for any junior varsity contests.

Home athletes will be given two passes to each game to give to friends, parents and/or family members. Students will only be admitted with a ticket.

Admission will still be free; no food or drink is allowed in the gymnasium.

Middle school games are currently not livestreamed, but Sequim school representatives said last week they are working on having that service available soon.
