The athletic department has received several questions regarding the ticketing process for basketball games. Please read the information below for answers to some of the most frequently asked questions.
Why are you being so strict on tickets?
We are in a pandemic and have strict guidelines that we have to follow. We can only only small % into the game and follow social distance guidelines set by the AAA and the state of Arkansas. We want your child to have the opportunity to play basketball this season and do not want to be the reason if it were to get shut down.
Can students attend?
Yes but they must buy a ticket. They must be accounted for in the attendance numbers
Why didn’t I know about tickets being sold?
This information is being posted on the school blog/website and handouts have been given to your players
Are AAA passes allowed?
Yes but you must have a photo id.
I bought my ticket online. What do I need to bring to the game?
You need to bring the print out or the QR code on your phone so it can be scanned to validate your ticket.
Who gets a voucher for road games?
Family members of the basketball teams will get the first opportunity.
How do I get tickets for home games?
For home games, tickets will be sold using www.ticketleap.com. Each player has the opportunity to buy 2 tickets. 100 tickets have been set aside for the players families. These tickets are password protected and the coach will provide a password to the players to purchase tickets. There will also be 50 general admission tickets available to each game that is not password protected. This will allow parents to buy additional tickets, until the 50 are gone.
Why do some schools provide more vouchers than others?
The amount of tickets available to the visiting team depends on each school’s gymnasium seating capacity.
What if I just show up to the game in Smackover?
You will still need go online and purchase your ticket and have the print out or QR code ready to show at the door for entry.
Hopefully this will help answer some of the questions about tickets for basketball games both home and away.
