Sports to resume during 2021 school year at Chipola College
Chipola College Athletic Director Jeff Johnson announced on Thursday, January 9 that he plans to bring fans back on campus for Chipola College athletic events during the Spring 2021 semester.
While fans will be returning to the campus, the school will still be limiting those allowed to attend – for men’s and women’s basketball games, only Appreciation Club members of the college will be allowed in the gym.
Johnson said this decision was made because basketball is an indoor sport, which creates limitations for social-distancing. Masks will be required to enter the Milton Johnson Center.
For outdoor baseball and softball games, there will be no limitation on the number of fans, although masks will be recommended and guidelines from the Center for Disease Control (CDC) for social-distancing will still be followed.
For those not able to attend games in-person, Chipola TV will provide live webcasts of all games.
A complete schedule of Chipola’s home games for all four sports is available at chipolaathletics.com and for information on joining the Appreciation Club, contact John Rushing at firstname.lastname@example.org or (850) 718-2398.
