Sussex Academy Sports
Fall Athletics Spectator Policy
Spectators at Sussex Academy home events are limited to 4 per Sussex Academy player. Visiting team spectators are not allowed at home events as Sussex Academy spectators are not allowed at away events. Administrators, media and college coaches are welcome and should have credentials.
Spectators must wear a face covering at all times and must social distance 6 feet apart unless living under the same household, and you must not show up if having symptoms of covid-19. Those who do not follow these safety measures will be required to leave the facility.
We are sorry we cannot welcome everyone to attend and support our athletes. However due to DPH gathering size restrictions we must limit those attending our contests. We look forward to seeing you back in the stands soon.
