Rules for Spectators at Athletic Events
PIAA District III has adopted rules for spectators at playoff/post-season competitions and has recommended member schools also follow these restrictions during regular season competition in order to maintain a sense of continuity throughout the season. Please note that the following apply to all Derry Township School District interscholastic athletic events:
The presence and/or the use of balloons, whistles, and/or portable listening devices without earphones is PROHIBITED! School officials will be requested to confiscate these items from their cheerleaders and/or the spectators from their school and community. The use of pom-poms by cheerleaders and small portable listening devices with earphones is permitted.
Spectators are prohibited from removing their shirts and/or using body paint while in attendance at athletic contests.
The principal, athletic director, coaches, team physician, team trainer, players in uniform, managers, ball holders, and statisticians will be the only persons permitted in the team box.
