Finally . . . The Ohio Department of Health and Governor released the health order Wednesday evening that allows all of our fall sports to take the field/court for competition. The order is lengthy and detailed, but absolutely doable as we have worked hard last night and today to clarify orders, to plan and implement seating plans, and to communicate to our coaches how the order effects their athletes and teams.
To that end, we are prepared to host our first soccer game Friday, August 21 at 6:00 pm . . . with restrictions. I have attached the complete text of the ODH order below and a brief list of bullet points that are important for fans. I urge all of you to read the summary at the very least. The number for each bullet point correlates with the outline of the order. Happy reading!
Most pressing questions for fans: who can go to the games? The order restricts attendance to 15% of the fixed seated capacity for the venue. For Lincolnview that means the high school gym will accommodate 232 fans, the elementary gym 51 fans, and the soccer field 130 fans at one time. These totals include visiting fans. The NWC AD’s and AD’s from all over Ohio are working to determine who and how many fans can attend their events. Our priority is to get family members and loved ones into the games!
Here is the info you need to know for Friday’s soccer game. We are working on volleyball plans and will release more information in the coming days.
Lincolnview soccer players have been allotted four tickets for Friday Night’s futbol contest with Ottoville. Those tickets should be given to family and household members. The remaining allotment of tickets were given to Ottoville for their fans.
Passes will not be honored at the ticket gate.
Fans attending the game are encouraged to bring lawn chairs as there will be seating on the track. Seating will also be available in the bleachers. In both locations, seating is marked to adhere to 6ft social distancing.
All spectators, employees, and volunteers are expected to wear masks. Coaches and players must also wear masks at designated times.
Limited concessions will be available.
Lastly, thank you to all Lancers for being patient and supportive of Lincolnview Local Schools! Go Lancers!
