CLEAR BAG POLICY
As a reminder, the SEC’s clear bag policy remains in place at Kroger Field for this event as an additional safety measure and to facilitate entry. Each fan will be permitted to carry one large clear bag – either a one-gallon Ziploc-style bag or a 12” x 6” x 12” clear bag – plus a small clutch that does not exceed 4.5” x 6.5”. The small clutch allows privacy for small personal items and is also easily searched. The clear bag policy improves public safety by making bags easily searched and significantly reducing faulty bag searches. Any non-clear bags left unattended at the gates will be evaluated and disposed of.

TIGER FAN BEHAVIOR AND ACTIONS
Sportsmanship is expected from our athletes, students, and fans. The National High School Federation and The Kentucky High School Athletic Association require officials to enforce sportsmanship rules. Athletics must emphasize positive values. All of us have worked hard to create a sense of teamwork, respect, responsibility and perspective. We remind you that your behavior represents our school community. We encourage and appreciate your help in representing the Bardstown Tigers in a positive manner. Here’s a few things you can do:
- Fans, including parents, stay in the stands before, during and after the game.
- Our student-athletes are fortunate to play in this collegiate facility. Just as we take pride in the appearance of our very own Tiger Stadium we must also be caretakers of Kroger Field. No matter how exciting the game becomes, please leave the stadium as it was when you arrived. Our school district will be financially liable for damage to any part of the stadium.
Let’s join together in Good Sportsmanship to make this a memorable event for our young people.
