Ashley Spriggs started this petition to Ohio Heritage Conference Board of Control

The most recent Directors Order from the Ohio Department of Health (ODH) gave guidelines such as the maximum number of individuals in any indoor sports venue shall be the lesser of 300 spectators or 15% of fixed, seat capacity, physical separation of six feet must be maintained, and there is to be no more than four seated in a group, unless from the same household.

The most recent administrative update from the Ohio High School Athletic Association (OHSAA) recommends that crowds are limited to parents and immediate family members.

Ohio Heritage Conference’s (OHC) Board of Control voted and PASSED a rule on November 25, 2020 to FURTHER limit winter sports attendance to players’ parents, step parents or guardians ONLY.

We, the parents and community members within the OHC, (Catholic Central, Cedarville, Fairbanks, Greenview, Greenon, Madison Plains, Mechanicsburg, Northeastern, Southeastern, Triad, West Jefferson, and West Liberty) respectfully disagree with OHC’s decision to further restrict winter sports spectators to players’ parents, step parents or guardians only. This decision places further undue hardship on families, especially those with small children.

We are asking for immediate family members and siblings to be included, as allowed in the ODH Directors Order and that was also further emphasized in OHSAA’s most recent administrative update.  We are not asking for any variance from the guidelines currently set forth by the ODH Director or Governor DeWine.

We understand that this petition may not change anything and we are committed to abiding by all rules set forth so that our children may have a successful winter sports season.
