Spectators and Fans:

WWU is excited to host Friendship Tournament 2022. It is important that we comply with all Washington state COVID-19 requirements, as well as guidelines established by WWU to help protect our campus community and our guests.

By attending tournament functions all spectators and athletic participants agree to abide by the following guidelines: 

  • Wear a facial mask that covers both the mouth and nose while indoors at all times. We recommend using a mask of higher quality such as a KN95 or N95 whenever possible. Any medical exemption request must be accompanied by official documentation from a health care provider.
  • Do not eat or drink in Friendship Tournament indoor spaces. Athletes that are actively participating in a contest are allowed to drink water during their match. This rule includes gymnasiums hosting tournament contests at WWU, WWVA and Rogers Adventist School. 
  • Maintain appropriate social distancing whenever possible from those outside of their family group if you are not vaccinated.
  • Display positive sportsmanship (no booing or heckling of referees or opposing teams or players, no noise makers, etc.) throughout the event.

Tournament event staff will strictly enforce the above requirements, and individuals who choose to ignore these rules will be asked to leave.

We hope this year’s tournament will be a fun memory for everyone involved. Thank you for adhering to these safety protocols, and for your partnership in keeping everyone who attends healthy and safe!
