Notes from parents meetings on 9/13/2020 in regards to modifications for Fall 2020 sports (click here)
Just a reminder, the MIAA has policy in regards to not having captain's practice "The MIAA does not in any way sanction, encourage, or condone "Captain's Practice" in any sport." Therefore, there should not be any organized practice out of season, and using school grounds, even for any informal workouts, could be seen as a violation.
DESE and the MIAA have approved fall sports (see links to modifications below)

Winter Sports Policies:
1. If it announced that the district has cancelled all after-school activities, all sports sponsored by the district (ie. Varsity/Junior Varsity teams) games or practices are cancelled/postponed. This includes home and away event
2. If school is closed, all sport games/practices are cancelled.
*If there is a circumstance that may arise (such as a playoff event that cannot be rescheduled and would be played at time later in the day that would be safe to travel/host) to cause an exemption to this part of the policy, players and coaches will be notified prior to the cancellation of events*
Home admission price for basketball games is $4 for adults,
$2 for students/seniors
Some information for spectators of Gateway Winter Sports:
Doors will open for adult spectators and supervised children one-half hour before the first event of the night, unaccompanied student-spectators will be allowed into gym 15 minutes before the first event of the night.
Students waiting after school to attend an event must either be signed in with a staff member or wait at security, and must exit the building and re-enter at the gym foyer doors (no entrance through connecting hallways). Please also make sure to have your ride home at school by 8:00PM. Failure to follow these rules may result in loss of privilege of attending games.
Please be respectful of all players, coaches, officials, staff, and other spectators .
Please clean up after yourself.
Cheer loud and proud, but please don’t use your cheers to obviously distract a player (for example, screaming as a player tries to shoot a foul shot). Causing disruptions may result in removal from the game, and the ability to attend future games.
Spring Sports Postponement Policies:
The needs of spring sports are unique and provide a difficult challenge whether or not to postpone a game. Being that the window to play all games is relatively short, it is our policy to wait as long as possible to postpone games. Postponements are generally announced before 1:00 PM the day of a game. Announcements are made to the students via intercom, and schedules are updated online, as well as notifications sent through the MIAA app for those who select that option, and email notifications for those who sign up on the MIAA schedule website.
