Spectator Policy

Cardinal Spellman High School

Athletics Spectator Policy

Winter Season  (As of 12/29/20)

There have been some recent changes to state guidelines for gathering at indoor and outdoor venues.  With the understanding that the COVID numbers are trending up, we have created a school policy to limit the number of spectators at our indoor athletic competitions this winter.  Please remember that policies are subject to change during this challenging time.

Basketball (Cardinal Spellman Gymnasium)

No visiting spectators will be allowed at basketball games.  Each varsity player from Spellman’s team will be able to admit one parent/guardian.  No student spectators will be allowed.  All spectators attending a game must enter through the front door of the fitness center building and sign in with the designated game administrator.  Spectators will be allowed into the varsity game after completion of the prior game and once all sanitization has been completed.  Once the varsity game has finished all spectators must immediately leave the gym and exit through the rear fitness center hallway doors.  Restrooms will be available.

All games – Varsity, Junior Varsity, and Freshmen will be lived streamed from the gymnasium.

Hockey (Zapustas Ice Arena, Randolph)

No visiting spectators will be allowed at hockey games.  Each varsity player from Spellman’s team will be able to admit one parent/guardian.  No student spectators will be allowed.  All spectators attending a game must enter through the main rink entrance and sign in with the designated game administrator.  Spectators will be admitted just prior to the start of the game and once the game has finished all spectators must immediately exit the rink.  Restrooms will be available.

Swimming (Kingsbury Club, Kingston)

Per pool facility and league policy, there will be no spectators allowed at swim meets.

Away Games and Meets

Spellman spectators must respectfully adhere to each school’s policy.  Please remember that policies are subject to change, sometimes daily during this challenging time.  Please be sure to check for updates prior to traveling to a game.
