BCS Families,

On Tuesday, August 18 Governor DeWine approved all Fall Sports (contact and non-contact) to move forward with full participation in their seasons. All sports, with the exception of football, will continue with their normal schedules. OHSAA modified the football regular season to 6 weeks, with all schools starting playoffs on week 7 of the season and allowing games to be scheduled after the playoffs begin. 

The experience for spectators will be different during the fall sports season as a result of COVID-19 and the order released by the Ohio Department of Health. In response to these mandates the NWOAL League Administrators developed common event protocols that keep each school in compliance with the mandates. The decisions that had to be made to stay in compliance were not easy, but allow each school in the league to stay compliant and allow the athletic contests to take place for our student-athletes. 

Thank you for your patience and understanding of the mandates and orders schools must follow to allow the athletic contests to be played. We are thankful our student-athletes have the opportunity to play, even considering these unique circumstances. 

Below are the NWOAL EVENT PROTOCOLS for your review. Also, attached here is the Sports Order released by the Ohio Department of Health: Sports Order.pdf 

NWOAL COVID-19 EVENT PROTOCOLS 2020-2021
The following protocols have been established to abide with current state mandates. In order to have limited attendance at NorthWest Ohio Athletic League games and our home events, each member school will abide by the following criteria.  It is the intent of the league to promote social distancing by offering tickets to family members of our participants and keeping attendance at the state mandated 15% or less capacity in our athletic facilities.

NWOAL League Policy is---All tickets will cost $6.

Varsity Football - a maximum of 2 tickets will be offered to each football player, cheerleader, and band member for home games and a maximum of 2 tickets will be offered to football players and cheerleaders at away football games.  The presale of all tickets will cost $6. These tickets will be presale and may be purchased from our Athletic Department office until 3:00pm on Monday-Tuesday-Wednesday of game week. Tickets must be purchased by the family of the participant.

Soccer - a maximum of 2 tickets will be offered to each participant for away games and a minimum of 2 tickets will be offered for home contests, if the home site permits.  All tickets will cost $6.  

9/JV/V Volleyball - a maximum of 2 tickets will be offered to each participant for away games and a maximum of 4 tickets will be offered for home contests.  All tickets will cost $6.  

For football, each school will provide a game day roster for those participants to be admitted at a pass gate.  That roster will include coaches, video and team stat personnel, and essential personnel that includes district administrators.

For volleyball (max of 15 per V/JV/9th teams) and soccer (22 max V/JV teams), each school will provide a game day roster that will include coaches and bench or staff personnel.  All tickets will cost $6.

This is for NWOAL games. We may have to adhere to adopted protocols from other leagues as we travel to other sites.

Marching Bands at Football Games - Bands will only be permitted to perform at home football games

Gate Times – Gates will open at 6:15pm for football games (45 min. before game time).  Gates will open 30 minutes before game time for soccer and volleyball games.
