Basketball Procedures 20-21 Decatur Basketball Season
Obviously, a few things have changed due to the situation with Covid. Keep in mind that we are required to follow all AAA, Health Department, and CDC Guidelines to be allowed to have a basketball season, and continue to play games in our facility. Superintendent Dr. Watkins has signed a required agreement with the State Department of Elementary and Secondary Education, Arkansas Activities Association, and the Health Department that requires us to follow all health and safety guidelines such as social distancing, and wearing masks in the facility.
Please be advised of the following rules and procedures to help keep everyone safe, and allow us to continue the use of our gym for games. Please review the following guidelines for safe attendance purposes.
All tickets for the games are sold through Ticketleap.com. We are limiting capacity due to social distancing restrictions to 125 tickets sold, 85 tickets will be available to the home fans and 40 tickets will be available to the away fans. A link to purchase tickets is on the Decatur Homepage. Tickets are $4 for both adults and children. To ensure your ticket is reserved, we encourage you to purchase your ticket in advance.
