Montgomery County schools have announced their plans for spectator attendance at spring sports events.
At this time there is no limit on a number of spectators at spring events, but online sales wiil continue.
North Montgomery will require a pre-sale ticket upon entering sporting events this spring. Tickets can be purchased at https://gofan.co/app/school/IN1689.
Crawfordsville will also require the purchase of pre-sale tickets at https://gofan.co/app/events/223771?schoolId=IN542.

Masks and social distancing will continue to be required at all times while at athletic facilities this spring. Schools encourage fans to bring their own lawn chairs.
North Montgomery athletic director Matt Merica says they will now accept Senior Citizen, Alumni, and Corporation Employee passes, and to just please present your pass to the ticket tacker upon arrival. No family passes will be available. North Montgomery will also provide a limited-item concession stand at home sporting events.
“I am so excited that our spring athletes will have an opportunity to compete once again,” Merica said. “We must continue to work together to make sure that they continue to play. We have learned that during a pandemic, you never know when your last game will be. So each practice and game should be treasured. Thanks for your continued support and I look forward to seeing you at our spring athletic events.”
And for the first time since May of 2019 — spring sports will hit competition fields.
“I think foremost it is important to recognize and remember the 2020 Senior Spring Athletes. We may not be able to provide them one last moment as a spring athlete, but we can at least let each of them know that we will miss seeing them on the field, on the tennis court, on the track, or on the golf course as we start this 2021 season. We continue to cheer each of you on whether you are at college, in the military, or the in the workforce. We hope to see you this spring at one of our events as Mountie alum,” Southmont athletic director Aaron Charles said in a statement on Twitter on Friday.
And even though spring sports are pressing on with as much normalcy as we’ve seen since the onset of the pandemic in March of 2020 — Crawfordsville athletic director Bryce Barton along with all schools across the area remind fans that if they have any signs and symptoms of COVID-19, to please stay home.
