Alliance High School has announced guidelines for fans attending activities during the winter sports season.  This follows the Nebraska School Activities Association guidelines which were issued earlier.  AHS Activities Director Anita James issued the following information.

While we pride ourselves on packing our gyms for our students.  We understand that due to COVID concerns we must follow the Governor’s mandates in regards to indoor capacity. Alliance Public Schools, the Board of Education, and the Western Conference will follow the following guidelines for Winter Sports to ensure that we can provide a safe environment for our students and all who can attend activities.   The following guidelines will be in place for all Alliance Bulldog home events.

MS basketball games and wrestling duals:

2 household members allowed per player depending on facility size

No Students allowed

MS wrestling tournament:

2 household members allowed per wrestler

No students allowed

HS basketball individual games, tournaments, and wrestling duals:

4 household members allowed per athlete

No students allowed

In addition, we will follow the NSAA mandates which require facial coverings to be worn at all times of all fans and workers in attendance. You will not be allowed to enter our facilities for any home games or wrestling duals if you do not have a facial covering on, and you will be asked to leave if you do not comply with this. 

All fans must also distance themselves 6 feet between household groups. We will have separate seating for home and visiting teams and spectators.  We will do our best to live stream our home contests so our supportive and dedicated fans can cheer on the Bulldogs from home.

This situation can be very fluid and can change from one minute to the next, so please be patient.  If there are any updates to our Winter Sports Fan Guidelines we will communicate them as soon as we can.  Thank you for your understanding in this matter!

Go Dawgs!
