Hornets News · Updated Event Protocols


As we continue to see a rise in cases of Covid-19 additional restrictions and guidance have come from the Marion County Health Department.  The information below details our event guidelines for winter athletics.  We will continue to update parents, coaches, and student-athletes as needed.  We highly encourage everyone to follow these protocols to ensure a safe and healthy environment.

Also, we will not honor Beech Grove gold cards due to the safety of our gold cardholders through ticket tracking requirements and accounting of financials.
