It is the priority of the Western Valley Conference to ensure the safety of all participants and the ability for them to finish the season. Due to the late notice regarding event attendance from the Governor’s Office the Western Valley Conference will continue to use guidance previously in place for middle school and high school events until January 17th. Previous guidance: Spectator rules include players, cheerleaders, dance teams and coaches Masks and social distancing required. Districts are only allowed to provide tickets to the members of the household that the athlete/performer reside under the same roof with OR two tickets. Not both for one athlete. If a family has a household attend the game, they are not permitted to give 2 additional tickets to others for that participant. If a family has two participants, they get two allotments and are not limited to a single household. A student who is living in two homes would be allowed to have passes for members of both households. If a participant has a divided household (i.e., the parents have joint custody), both halves of the family are part of the participant's household. They are both households for the participant, when viewed from the participant's vantage point. Spectators will need to leave once their participant(s) are finished competing for the night.
