No spectators were allowed for the South High School boys basketball home opener on Jan. 8.

SHEBOYGAN — Last week, the Fox River Classic Conference began allowing a limited number of spectators for winter sports competitions.

Sheboygan Area School District Activities Director Chris Hein gave us a quick look inside how the district is handling winter sports spectators.

The FRCC has decided to allow two spectators per athlete. How is this being tracked?

Hein: "Athletes provide us with the names of the two family members that will be attending the game that night. We check in those family members at a designation entrance when they arrive no earlier than 15 minutes before game time."

Is admission being charged for spectators?

Hein: "Admission is complimentary for this winter."

Does it have to be the same two spectators?

Hein: "No, they do not have to be the same two spectators."

Will masks continue to be required?

According to the FRCC website, masks are required by all players, coaches, officials, workers and spectators. The policy is set to be reviewed this week, however it will likely be extended as Gov. Tony Evers extended the mask mandate yesterday.
