NOTICE - WINTER 2022

Due to the increase in COVID infection rates, attendance at all THS athletic contests will be restricted to 2 guests per athlete.  Normal ticket prices will be in effect.

THS requires strict adherence to masking and social distancing guidelines.  Failure to comply with these guidelines will result in removal from the athletic contest.
