Middle and High School Basketball
Ball Gym located at 2111 W. Riverside Avenue is the basketball venue. Spectators will enter the facility through the main entrance on the east side of the building facing the Quad and McKinley Avenue. The stairwell to the north (right side when entering main doors) will be used to access the main floor. Fans will be guided by stanchions to maintain six feet of personal distance while waiting to enter the gym.

Spectators are to sit in unmarked areas in the bleachers. Seats are marked off in groups of two throughout the gym with groups of four located at the top of the north and south bleachers. The south stairwell should be used to access the restrooms and concessions, which are available in the basement area. Areas of the bleachers with tape are to be considered unavailable.

At the completion of the event, spectators will be dismissed by sections and are to use the doors to the south. Fans are to leave the facility once dismissed and are not allowed to congregate in the facility or wait for athletes. Multiple announcements will be made throughout the event to help remind fans of these safety guidelines.
