Dear DePaul Prep Families and Friends,

Due to a recent uptick in positive COVID cases and close contacts in the DePaul Prep community, and out of an abundance of caution, DePaul Prep Athletics is going to temporarily reinstate some of the spectator mitigations we had in place last year. Our goals are two-fold: we want to keep everyone safe and we hope this ensures that our teams can continue to play during holiday tournaments. For the Boys Varsity, Sophomore and Freshman basketball games scheduled for Saturday, December 18, and the Boys Freshman A and B basketball games scheduled for Monday, December 20, we will implement the following mitigations:

  • Spectators

    • 4 family guest spectators are allowed per player and coach for both DePaul Prep and our opponent. 

    • Parents of players will complete a Google form in advance of our home games so we know exactly who should be attending the game.

  • Masks are to be worn for the entire duration of the spectators' time in the gymnasium.

    • Spectators are asked not to bring food or drink into the gymnasium so masks can be worn at all times.

    • Concessions will not be sold.

  • Seating Arrangements

    • DePaul Prep spectators sit in the bleachers across from the benches.

    • Visiting spectators sit in the “short” balcony seats behind the west basket.

    • All spectators are asked to sit only with their family members and social distance as much as possible.

  • Spectators are asked to leave the gymnasium immediately following the game in which their child/family member is playing.

We will reevaluate our spectator mitigation plans over Christmas break and make necessary adjustments as needed as we carefully monitor COVID data and guidance from local and state officials during upcoming weeks.

Thank you for your understanding.

Director of Athletics
