CAVALIER ATHLETICS RESTART

The Cavalier Athletics Restart Committee is comprised of representatives from the fall sports, Public Health and Boosters. Their job was to set guidelines for how sports will run for Tornadoes home games this fall.

These guidelines are subject to change.

Games - The schedule for Tornadoes football, volleyball and Grizzlies cross country teams will remain basically the same with a few changes.  The Tornadoes volleyball team will still play all their regular season matches but will not have any regular season tournaments. Cavalier football will play their complete varsity schedule, including non-conference contests, with their first game vs Larimore on August 21. Cross country will have fewer teams at each meet and staggered start times.

Practices - Practice starting dates have not changed, with football and cross country beginning August 10, and volleyball August 17.

Broadcasts - With a cap on the number of fans and crowds at games, all Tornadoes home football and volleyball games will broadcast LIVE on Tornado Vision and can also be streamed live through the NFHS Network once the system is in place. Along with home games, most road games will be broadcast on KNDK-FM, or 95-7 The Rock Farm, and online through myborderland.com.

Fans - Each player and coach of a Tornado team participating in an event will receive up to six tickets.  A ticket is needed to enter a sporting event, and the name and phone number of the fan needs to be written on the back of the ticket.  The ticket will be collected at the gate.  Because of this, re-entry may not be permitted.  Admission is to be paid at the gate:  $7 for adults, $5 for students/adults 55 and over.  PLEASE USE EXACT CHANGE.  All passes will be accepted, but an entry ticket is required. Refunds for passes will not be given if the season is affected by COVID-19.  Cavalier senior citizens 65 and older can pick up a complimentary pass at the school office.  If you are using a pass, please show it at the gate.  ALL FANS will need an entry ticket to enter an event.  The color of the entry ticket will change, so a new ticket is needed each time.   Students in grades 7-12 and staff who do not have a family member participating can pick up an entry ticket at the school office any day prior to the event.  Students can only pick up a ticket for him/herself.  Staff can get for self and spouse.  General public can stop by the school office on the day of the event.  The office is open from 8 am – 4 pm.  If there are any extra tickets, they will be at the gate of the event.  With North Dakota being in the Green Phase of reopening, that means that no more than 500 people can attend a public event. Opposing teams will each be sent 100 tickets to give to their fans. Fans attending the games are required to wear a mask upon entrance into the buildings and when paying at the gate.  Masks are recommended anywhere on school property.  Fan groups will be asked to physically distance themselves from other groups.  Fans with a cough, fever, body aches, fatigue, or any other COVID symptom or underlying health conditions are encouraged not to attend. 

Football - At the football field, fans can enter using either entrance (unless it is marked with cones as to not use that entrance).  Varsity games will be using entry tickets.  JH and JV fans and workers will be asked to sign in at the gate – name and phone number.                                                                         No parking allowed on the baseball field.

Volleyball - During the event, fans will enter using door #7 or door #8 and exit using door #1 or door #3.  At the conclusion of the last event, all doors can be used as exits.  Entry tickets will be required and collected at the gate.  Because of this, re-entry may not be permitted.  Admission is to be paid at the gate:  $7 for adults, $5 for students/adults 55 and over.  PLEASE USE EXACT CHANGE.  Each ticket should have the name and phone number on the back.  Face mask are highly recommended in the gym.  Visiting fans are to use the north bleachers and Cavalier fans are to use the south bleachers.  Fans are asked to only attend the game(s) their family member is playing.  7, 8 and C will only play a 3rd set if time allows.  Score table will consist of score board operator, libero tracker and bookkeeper - all will wear a mask.

Cross Country - Facial coverings are recommended for fans whenever social distancing is not possible.  Fans will be asked to sign in at the gate – name and phone number. 

Elementary Basketball - Fans will sign in at the gate using doors #7 and #8 to enter and doors #1 and #3 to exit. Score table will consist of score board operator and home bookkeeper.  Face mask are highly recommended in the gym.  Visiting fans are to use the north bleachers and Cavalier fans are to use the south bleachers.

Concessions - Concessions will be available with limited menu items.

Please remember that these guidelines and regulations have been put in place to keep schools open and to keep athletes and students healthy. As tough as this is going to be for some people, the goal is to keep kids playing and performing in activities. If you have questions, please call the Cavalier High School at 265-8417.
