Due to the new spectator restrictions that have been put into place by the Marion County Health Department for the 2020-2021 school year, the Warren Central Athletic Department will implement the following safety and budget protocols.
HOME EVENT TICKETS
Athletic Department home event tickets will be purchased through the GOFAN app or link below. We will not accept cash. This will allow us to monitor and comply with spectator capacity. In addition, this online application will assist with contact tracing.
Note: Make sure to have your email showing your purchase pulled up on your phone, then you can click on VIEW TICKETS, but DO NOT VALIDATE YOUR TICKETS! That is for the Event Worker to do! IF they are validated before we see it, you will not be able to enter the gates.
Due to the restrictions of spectators at events and the negative impact on the athletic budget, for the 2020-2021 school year, complimentary staff tickets (Warren Township Employees) and special passes will not be accepted.
Note: We will post spring event ticket information either the day before or the day of the spring event, depending on the weather forecast.
Battery powered or electronic noisemakers, air horns, compressed air or gas, sirens, whistles, fireworks, or recorded music are prohibited during all contests on Warren Central properties.

We are committed to your safety and enjoyable experience in our stadiums and gymnasiums.
The following items are permitted in our facilities:
- Small clutch purse NO LARGER than 6" x 9 ".
- One clear plastic or vinyl bag that does not exceed 12" (height) x 6" (depth) x 12" (length) or a 1-gallon plastic freezer bag.
- An exception may be made for any items necessary for medical purposes, subject to search.
The following items are prohibited in our facilities:
- Backpacks and sports/duffel bags
- Drawstring bags
- Purses and tote bags
- Diaper bags - parents with infants or toddlers may carry a clear gallon size bag with necessary items for their child
- Coolers, outside foods and drinks
All items are subject to inspection. Thank you for your support and cooperation.
We allow Media to enter free of charge, as long as they display Media Credentials during the entire event AND sign-in at the Media table when they arrive. Please note: The space surrounding our competition gym for Basketball/Volleyball and the pressboxes for Football/Track stadium pressboxes have limited space so we reserve the right to turn media away based on floor space. We highly encourage the media to contact the Athletic Office at least 1 day prior to a contest to make sure we have space.
We do not allow Scouts or scouting service representatives to enter free of charge, nor do we have a sign-in sheet for college, pro, or high school scouts. All college and pro scouts can be reimbursed by their college or team by purchasing a ticket and turning it in for reimbursement. All high school scouts are allowed in with their MIC or City-County Pass.
Fundamentals of Sportsmanship
- Show respect for self and others at all times.
- Show respect for the officials. Good sportsmanship implies the willingness to accept and abide by the decisions of the officials.
- Know, understand and appreciate the rules of the contest. Good sportsmanship suggests the importance of conforming to the spirit as well as the letter of the rules.
- Maintain self-control at all times. Prevent the desire to win from overcoming rational behavior.
- Recognize and appreciate skill in performance regardless of team affiliation.
Know Your Role
There are only four roles in every game. You can play. You can coach. You can officiate. Or you can be a fan. But you can only play one role at a time. Fans aren’t coaches. Players aren’t referees. Officials officiate. And coaches coach. Know your role—do your absolute best—and respect the rest.
Responsibilities of Parents
- Realize that a ticket is a privilege to observe a contest and support high school activities. It is not a license to verbally assault anyone or act in an outrageous manner.
- Realize that athletics are part of the educational experience and that its benefits go beyond the final score of the contest.
- Respect the decisions made by officials and learn the rules of the game to better understand their decisions.
- Participate in positive cheers and refrain from encouraging those who take away from the spirit of the contest.
- Respect and support the task of the coaches.
- Respect opponents as students, and acknowledge them for striving to do their best.
- Be a parent your child would be proud of! Be a fan, not a fanatic!
