Attendance at Games
Attendance at athletic games held on campus is limited to:
- Referees and/or officials
- Trainers, coaches, and staff
- Technical staff (e.g. A/V livestream)
- Two family member guests per McDonogh athlete (Indoor and Outdoor Contests)
- Two family member guests per athlete from the visiting team (Outdoor Contests Only)
Please note: spectators are not permitted at practices. Student spectators are not permitted unless they are the family-member guest of a competing athlete.
Prior to away games, coaches will share the competitor school's spectator policy. Some schools may not allow fans.
Face coverings (cloth or medical masks) are required at all times for everyone not actively in play, including players on the sidelines, referees/officials, trainers, coaches, staff, media, and spectators. Neck gaiters are permitted only for athletes on the field.
McDonogh will abide by the rules of the IAAM and MIAA and will require athletes on the field of play to wear a mask as applicable. McDonogh prefers that all athletes wear masks at all times, but will match the requirements of competing teams as necessary. If the governing league does not require masks, and the competing team does not intend to wear masks, McDonogh athletes will not be required to wear masks.
Athletes not in the field of play; trainers, coaches and staff; and spectators in attendance must practice physical distancing of six feet at all times.
Attendance at indoor athletic events on campus is limited to 50 percent of the facility's maximum occupancy, with no more than 50 people permitted per activity area. Attendance at outdoors events is limited to 250 people. This includes all present at the contest, including athletes, officials, coaches, and spectators.
Restrooms for Home Contests
Restrooms will be available outside the Fader Innovation Center and at the far end of the tennis courts. Several portable bathrooms will also be available. No one is permitted inside the gymnasiums or other school buildings.
As soon as the game is over, spectators must leave the field of play and return to their cars to wait for athletes.
Transportation to Games
Transportation will be provided for teams traveling to away games. Upperclassmen who drive to school may drive themselves to away games with a signed parent permission form, which can be obtained from your son or daughter's coach.
Out of State Competition and Tournaments
Athletic events with teams from outside the State of Maryland remain prohibited. Tournaments are also prohibited until further notice.
Athletes will be tested along with students during the School's typical surveillance testing windows, at a rate of roughly 25% of all athletes each week.
