It’s hard to believe, but Winter Sports are here and hoop season is in full swing! Due to the current COVID-19 pandemic, we are still under strict capacity guidelines for all PCSD Basketball games, thus limiting our spectator capacity. South Paulding High School will continue to take extra precautions to try and ensure as safe an environment as possible for our fans. We know that many would like to join us at the games and hopefully as we move later in the season, that opportunity will present itself. This letter will outline the process for our home basketball games.
Due to social distancing guidelines, the home and visiting schools will still be allotted a certain number of tickets based on the limited maximum capacity of 350 total persons. For the home games, we want to give each participants families the opportunity to purchase two (2) tickets prior to any tickets being sold to the public. The parent/guardian of those participating in the games being played (i.e. basketball players, managers, and cheerleaders) will receive an email from South Paulding HS on Sunday evenings for all home games that week, with a private GoFan links and a unique access code. This unique access code will remain the same all season and will be the one you will use the entire season. If neither parent/guardian of participants receives this link by Monday morning at 8 AM, you should email your coach. Please keep in mind that the email will be sent to the primary contact as registered with your child’s coach.
Tickets are $5 (plus a $1 processing fee). You will have 24-hours to purchase your tickets. Ticket link and access codes will close the morning of the game. If you do not purchase your tickets within the 24-hour window, these tickets will be made available for sale on our public link that will be sent out the next day.
If the visiting school does not sell their ticket allotment, those will be returned to the home school and made available for sale on our public link as well.
