In accordance with IDPH, IHSA, and IESA guidelines, the Illini Central School District #189 Athletic Department has developed the following guidelines for all spectators and student-athletes that attend or participate in any home events that will occur during the 2021-22 INDOOR sports season at Illini Central. It is our goal to hold all scheduled contests for our student-athletes. In order for this to occur, we need your full cooperation with the requirements that are listed below. Please understand that the requirements to conduct athletic events may change, and we may be required to change our procedures for hosting events. If these procedures change, we will communicate them as quickly as possible.

  • At this time, no capacity limits for the number of spectators in attendance at extracurricular events and activities exists.

  • All fans attending an event should self-certify that they are symptom free of COVID-19 before arrival to an event.

  •  All student-athletes, coaches, game personnel, and spectators MUST wear a mask regardless of vaccination status.

  • A certain section will be designated for the student-athletes and coaches near the bench area to keep student-athletes and spectators separate at the event. The designated area will be marked.

  • There will be an admission charge for attending events -- $4.00 per adult and $2.00 per student/child.

  • All MS/HS students can get in free to ALL indoor sporting events by joining the Cougar Crazies Club.

  •  Concessions will be available.

  •  Restrooms will be available.

Hopefully, this information allows you to attend all indoor extracurricular events hosted by the Illini Central School District #189. We appreciate your cooperation and patience at this time.
