  • Warrior Stadium - 700

    Basically, the same procedures as in the gyms. All workers, spectators, coaches, officials will wear masks. Players can wear their helmets on the sideline, and not worry about distancing, if they have a face shield or mask. If they don’t have a face shield or mask, then they must social distance.

    Sideline rules -  Players will spread out on the sidelines to the 10 yard lines. Cheerleaders will be from the 10 yard line to back of the endzone. They can come on the field at end of quarters and half time.
