2021-2022 OESJ Winter Season Spectator Guidelines

The Western Athletic Conference has announced that two spectators per athlete for away games will be permitted at this year’s league basketball contest. In addition to the 2 WAC away passes, each basketball player and cheer athlete will receive 4 HOME passes for use at HOME contests only. Like the WAC away passes, these home passes can be given to family and friends. The home passes are not valid at any contest held at another school. 

Masks will be required, regardless of vaccination status. Please understand that the health and safety of our student-athletes, coaches, and spectators is our number one priority. Each modified JV and varsity basketball player will receive 2 away WAC passes. Cheerleaders will not be traveling to away games this year, so they will not receive the WAC “away” passes. Tickets can change hands but only 2 spectators per athlete will be allowed for each league away game. Spectators should arrive no more than 15 minutes prior to the contest’s scheduled start time. JV spectators and players should leave the gymnasium at the conclusion of the JV game to allow room for the varsity spectators. This would be also true at the modified level if there are 2 games being played back to back. 

Please note: Passes are the responsibility of the athlete and their family. Lost passes will not be replaced. Each school reserves the right to deny entry into a contest if you do not present your pass, so please remember to bring them with you to each contest! 

The spectator policy for non-WAC contests will be determined based on the host school’s policy. Spectators’ information for these games will be shared as soon as it is finalized. 

If you have any questions, please contact Athletic Coordinator Travis Heiser by e-mail at
