New athletic venue operating procedures for fans, teams, officials

Based on requirements from the Ohio Department of Health, the Jackson Local School District has to restrict ticket sales to athletic events to parents of those performing on game night, which includes student-athletes, band members, and cheerleaders. For those attending contests, a facial covering is REQUIRED to enter Robert Fife Stadium, Neitzelt Stadium, Jackson High School's gymnasium, or other venues in which Jackson High School or Middle School teams are competing. Those attending will have to sit 6 feet from other families in attendance, but family members from the same house may sit together.

For those attending an event in one of our venues, please familiarize yourself with our stadium/arena procedures. That information can be found here.

For parents of student-athletes performing, ticket information to purchase reserved-seat ticketing online can be found here. It is important to note, tickets are only offered to parents of student-athletes and a code is required to purchase tickets.

While we are disappointed we are not permitted to include more spectators, we will live stream all home football, soccer, and volleyball contests at There is no fee to watch these live streams. They are powered by Akron Auto Auction and the Law Offices of Winkhart & Minor and they can be viewed by going to or our Facebook page or YouTube channel.

We encourage parents to visit our webpage to become familiar with the plans, including what to do in the event of inclement weather outside. This information is available here.

There will be no congregating before or after events and anyone without a ticket will be asked to leave. Parents must exit the stadium immediately after the game and proceed to their vehicles.
