Winter Sports Safety Expectations

We look forward to a new season with our winter sports at the PAAC! The safety of our students, staff and families at Deer Creek events is our top priority, and we need your help to ensure that our home games are a safe and enjoyable experience for our entire community. In order for us to provide a safe environment with large indoor crowds as well as support our team with that Antler spirit, we need all attendees to adhere to the following rules and expectations:

Patrons are highly encouraged to purchase tickets through the Hometown app.
Students in PK – 8th grade must have a parent in attendance at the PAAC and will not be allowed to enter the gate without an adult. 
Students PK–12 are not allowed re-entry into the PAAC.  

Prohibited items within the PAAC: large toys, objects that could potentially be thrown in the stands (footballs, basketballs, etc.), Noisemakers, Weapons of any kind including knives, vapes, tobacco, alcohol, illegal substances, etc.)

Metal detectors will be used for the majority of our home events.

Running, throwing objects, fighting, horseplay, and yelling at players, coaches, referees, other fans, etc. will result in immediate dismissal from the event. 

All DCHS students must be picked up within 20 minutes of the end of the final game or may forfeit their right to attend future games. (PK - 8th should already be with a family and thus have a ride home immediately after the final game.)

All fans are expected to exhibit good sportsmanship before, during, and after the game. Unsportsmanlike behavior can jeopardize the season for our sports teams. Anyone not exhibiting sportsmanlike behavior will be removed from the game.

We are anticipating large crowds at our home PAAC events, and it takes all of us working together to keep everyone safe. Deer Creek cannot guarantee everyone’s safety, especially that of younger students that are not properly supervised at games by their families. Each of the rules stated above stems from serious injuries and/or safety issues that have occurred in the past. We thank you for your assistance, support, and understanding. GO CREEK!

To ensure that all spectators can access the lobby entrance, concession stand, restrooms, etc. safely and efficiently:
Loitering and horseplay are not allowed in the lobby, stairwells, and walking track around the top of the gym. 
Students in grades PK – 6th grade must sit with their families in the stands.
Middle school students need to also sit in the stands, and may sit together as a group.
High School students will sit in their reserved student section.
No spectators are allowed on the basketball courts at any time.
Deer Creek students/fans should remain on the Home side of the gym.
