Spectator Responsibilities, Limitations, and Services

When possible, we would encourage all fans to watch home events on the UJ Athletics website at or listen to games on the radio.

Spectators are also encouraged to purchase tickets before an event online at

In person ticket purchases are still permitted, but we encourage pregame ticket purchases to minimize contact between spectators and ticket office personnel.

Spectators will be able to either print tickets at home or use mobile entry tickets for safe, no-touch redemption at the gate.

Gates will open 60 minutes prior to start of contest.

All spectators are expected to follow CDC guidelines and self-screen before deciding to attend a Jimmie home event.  Those guidelines can be found at

If you feel ill in any way, please do not attend.

If you decide to attend a Jimmie home game, you must wear a face mask.  This is a requirement of the Great Plains Athletic Conference.  If you leave your mask in your vehicle, we will ask that you to return to your vehicle in order to retrieve it.  If you come to a game without a mask, UJ Athletics will provide you with a disposable mask.

Entrances to UJ athletic facilities will feature hand sanitizing stations.

All spectators are expected to practice physical distancing at Jimmie athletic events at all times.

Family groups may sit together but are expected to practice physical distancing between other spectators or family groups.

Seating at UJ home facilities will be limited to no more than 50% capacity which includes UJ students, faculty, staff, Jimmie Booster Club members, student-athlete parents, home general public and visiting spectators.

UJ home facilities will be marked to indicate where spectators may not sit.  Any seat covered by yellow caution tape indicates that seat is not available.

Spectators will not be allowed to watch games from standing room areas in UJ Athletics facilities.

Spectators will be expected to honor physical distancing and other protocols listed above for Jimmie home events hosted at Jamestown Park and Recreation facilities (Jack Brown Stadium, Trapper Field, Wilson Arena).

Concessions will be open at home events, but fans will be expected to adhere to physical distancing when in concession stand lines and must consume food and beverage in seating areas.  This is the only time masks are permitted to be removed.

There will be no tailgating prior to any home event on the University of Jamestown campus.

Spectators will not be allowed on to fields and courts at any time unless in an emergency situation.

Postgame gatherings in concourses, on courts and fields and in proximity to locker rooms are prohibited.

Parents are encouraged to meet with their student-athletes at locations outside of UJ Athletics facilities.
