Utah High School basketball crowds

Post by GameFAQSAggie » January 21st, 2021, 3:25 pm

I heard on the radio broadcast of a Logan High game that they allowed 120 Logan students, after other games they didn't allow any, and gave each player 2 tickets to give to their parents, unless their parents wanted to let someone else use them and go to the game. They also mentioned that they have the pep band social distanced in the crowd. Aren't they also making the home cheerleaders cheer in the stands like almost all colleges are doing? Are they shutting out the visiting team's fans including their cheerleaders from attending, other than the 2 tickets a player? I would assume that as is the case with other events, they are making students get out of there when the game is over and not hang out on the court like most years.

I don't know if it's uniform throughout the state but I went to Provo High's basketball game a few weeks ago. Each player on each team got an allotment of tickets (not sure how many but I'm guessing 4-6). There was no band and no student section. The cheerleaders were on the floor about 10 feet back from the baseline wearing masks. There was a decent sized crowd but not so large that you couldn't distance from other people.

My sons both play High School basketball out here and we weren't allowed to attend any games until 2 weeks ago. We watched games on the NFHS Network. Now we can attend but they only let two parents in to home games. When they play road games we are not allowed to attend. Cheerleaders are allowed to attend the home games. The players are not bussed to the away games instead they have to find their own ride.

I have a close friend from HS who both her and her husband played college ball, have been HS coaches, have kids playing ball in ID, and now she is a school administrator.

She has been extremely vocal about her displeasure with the Governor and high school sports administration for how they have handled crowds and parents. Her social media posts seem to indicate it has been a bit better lately, albeit still unsatisfactory.

It's definitely frustrating. My sons attend the largest High School in Idaho and they're really strict in following the COVID protocol. Club basketball was crazy over the summer too. Hopefully things improve soon.

That is at least somewhat reasonable. I am thankful to USU for allowing fans. The 2 games i have attended have been wonderful. I honestly think there is a way to be both responsible but also allow fans. I am thankful the bear river health department is acting in a responsible way (in my opinion).

But wouldn’t that require adults being allowed to make their own decisions?

It would. It's also too bad some adults are dumbasses.

I'd say many are. And the UHSAA is full of prime examples.

Idaho just announced they are relaxing their rules. We are now allowed up to 40% of the capacity. Each district can be more strict. This pretty much means that in my small town, anyone that wants to go can.
