• Spectator Information for 2020-21 Athletics

     

    There is a lot of information here pertaining to spectating athletic events, therefore please be sure to read through this in its entirety.  Athletics are an integral part of our district’s total educational program, and it has been exciting to watch our students practice and prepare for the start of the fall season using the procedures and protocols outlined in our ETSD Athletic Health and Safety Plan

    In planning for fall athletic events, Berks County school districts have collaboratively developed procedures that align with both legislative mandates and the guidelines/recommendations from the PIAA and the Berks County Interscholastic Athletic Association. The information below reflects the current status of the Governor’s order and is consistent with all athletic venues across our BCIAA League.  You can view the BCIAA Spring 2021 recommendations on their website.

    We encourage our families and community to take advantage of the livestreaming that we will be providing for many of our home athletic contests. Most home events will be streamed from YouTube on our Exeter Athletics YouTube Channel.  More information about live streaming is available on our website and on the Athletic Departments Twitter account.  The BCIAA maintains a list of streaming sites for other schools that can be used to stream away conference games.  

    We recognize these are trying times for our student-athletes and their families and that the orders/recommendations can change at any time. We are doing our best to work through the orders and guidance as it is provided while remaining attentive to the needs and concerns of our school community. We also need your assistance to help provide a safe and orderly forum for our student athletes and related staff as we open our campuses for these activities.
