Seneca Valley Community,
The fall season kicked off last week as our Golf team and Football teams had successful events. The Varsity Cheer team also had a great debut of their new squad at the football game on Friday night. With today being the 1st day of school- the rest of our sports will kick off today and later on this week.
We are so excited for the upcoming season and cannot wait to see all of our student athletes in action. SVHS Athletics would like to reminder you of a few of our important polices and guidelines for our events.
As most of you know, due to construction of Seneca Valley 2.0- we will not host any outdoor home events at Seneca Valley for the next several years. Our Tennis team will be hosting events at our adopted home courts at Roberto Clemente Middle School. The girls start off the season today at 3:30 against Paint Branch High School. Our football teams (JV and V) will be practicing on campus this year, but will play all of their “home” games at Gaithersburg High School. The Field Hockey and Soccer teams will play the majority of their events as road games- however they each have at least one neutral site game. The Cross Country team will be practicing on campus and will continue to have home events at Black Hills Regional Park. Our volleyball team will be hosting events per normal in our gymnasium. Please refer to our website for specific game information. (www.svhsathletics.org )
Regarding parking for our fall home volleyball matches. Fans can continue to use the gymnasium parking lot and will be able to access the gym via the main gym entrance stairs. There is a designated walkway along the fence line. Overflow parking will be in the auditorium parking lot, however patrons will have to walk around the front of the building to the gymnasium entrance in order to access the gym events.
It is important for everyone to be reminded that though many of our events will be on the road, the expectations for our student athletes, parent/guardians, and fans remains the same. It is expected that the Seneca Valley community holds themselves to the highest standards at all times and does not interfere the integrity of the event.
The Seneca Valley Athletic Department is extremely excited to welcome fans of all ages to our events. We want to create a safe and enjoyable atmosphere for everyone in attendance. With that said we would like to share a few reminders about our game policies. Ticket prices have stayed the same with Adults paying $5.00, Students $3.00 and children ages 7-11 being charged $1.00. Anyone under the age of 6 and senior citizens will be admitted free to all county events. Only MCPS ID’s and MPSSAA passes will be accepted for free admission. Also a reminder that MCPS employees are allowed one (1) additional member free entrance. This will be strictly enforced at the gate.
In regards to in game behavior, Seneca Valley would like to remind everyone that they are attending a Montgomery County High School athletic event. This is an event that allows young men and women to participate in a sport and gain valuable life lessons at the same time. Fans should remember that at no time will foul language, disrespectful behavior, loud inappropriate yelling or any game disruptive action be tolerated and may lead to your removal from the event.
Sportsmanship is a major part of the any SVHS athletic event and adherence to this policy will be strictly enforced.
