Averett cougars

Averett University athletics department officials announced this weekend that they will allow fans to spectate scrimmages this fall.

Intrasquad Scrimmages will open to spectators starting Sept. 12.

Online schedules for each team are online at averettcougars.com as they are available.

Spectator sporting events will operate with limited capacity. That number does not include team members, coaches or training staff.

A maximum of 600 people are allowed at outdoor events.

A maximum of 250 people are allowed at indoor events.

Officials urge spectators to protect the Averett Community by wearing face coverings at all times while on campus, completing a self-health check prior to attending, not attending if you have signs or symptoms of illness or if you've been exposed to someone who is sick, maintaining social distance while on campus, following signage markings for available seating and using provided hand sanitizer stations.

Tailgating and alcohol are not permitted at any time this fall.

Practices will remain closed to spectators until further notice, subject to change.
