    NFHS Live Streaming Information:
    *Due to limited spectators at home events, live streaming will be provided for certain athletic contests through the NFHS network.  The NFHS network will allow you to watch RHS events - home/away - throughout the Fall/Winter/Spring seasons for some sports.  In addition, it will allow you access to additional schools throughout the state of Virginia that have the system.

    UPDATE (3/30/21):  Fall Sports Attendance -

    When determining the appropriate allotment of fans, the participants will come first for both teams and the appropriate number of tickets for those participants.  We recognize that fans not directly tied to a participant may want to attend games, but please understand we are limited or may have no availability in allowing additional fans to attend these events given the covid restrictions.   Please respect that these are the guidelines we must follow in order to play.   For those fans unable to attend in person, while live-streaming may not be your preferred method to view the game, it's the best we can offer given the restrictions.  Respect the guidelines so our student-athletes can play and participate.
