Alma College Announces Spectator Policy for Indoor Athletic Events

Alma College Announces Spectator Policy for Indoor Athletic Events

ALMA, Mich. – The Alma College Athletics department is pleased to announce that spectators will be allowed at indoor competitions. This policy has been updated and will go into effect on March 25th. 

For each participating coach and student-athlete will allow multiple family members to attend home contests in Art Smith Arena. These spots are non-transferable. We will also allow Alma College community members (students, staff, and faculty) to be spectators at home basketball and volleyball games.

The spectator guidelines for volleyball games this spring is as follows

-Alma College student-athletes will now be permitted to have 4 guests from the same household

-Visiting team student-athletes will be permitted to have 2 guests from the same household.

-50 college community members (students, staff, and faculty) will be allowed to attend. 

Parents/Guardians will be contacted via email about reserving their spots for upcoming games. 

Campus community members will sign-up using the sign-up genius linked in the Alma College campus calendar. Links will be shared three days before the competition is set to start. Once all spots are filled, registration will close. Use your alma.edu email address to be granted access to the competition.

For competition days that include a junior varsity game, spectators will be allowed to attend both the junior varsity and varsity games. There will not be a separate sign up between the junior varsity contest and the varsity contest. 

Due to the size of the STUNT roster, STUNT spectators will be restricted to two parents/guardians for participating Alma College coaches and student-athletes. No College Community members will be allowed to attend. Spirit groups will also not be in attendance for home STUNT contests.  

All spectators will be required to complete two screenings prior to their arrival to campus and must be registered at least 24 hours prior to the event. Alma College will not accept walk up guests at any time. All venues will require guests to check in at a specific area. Visiting team coaches will be sent the screening form and they will be responsible for dispersing that information to their teams.

While on Alma College's campus, social distancing and masking is required. Absolutely no consumption of food will be permitted while at events, guests will be asked to eat food in their vehicle. Anyone in violation of our campus policies will be asked to leave. Please be sure to thoroughly read our policies and instructions prior to your arrival.
