Valley Stadium Seating Assignments to Offer Enhanced Tiger Spirit, Ease for Parents

West Des Moines Community Schools’ upcoming Valley High School football season will bring some changes to the home side seating arrangements for both students and families. To help fans find their sections, we have provided a map and a summary of the changes.

  1. The Valley Marchmasters band will be in the first section of the lower level on the south side of the stadium (closest to the scoreboard).
    • WHY? This allows band members to easily enter and exit the bleachers with minimal disruption. It also provides an opportunity for the band to be close to the high school student body, cheerleaders, and dance squad.
  2. High school students will now have two sections adjacent to the band. These sections are along the 25-40 yard line. The cheerleaders and dance squad will move to be directly in front of the high school and junior high sections.
    • WHY? We are excited to connect our junior and senior high student body sections with our cheer and dance squads. This will encourage more energy and participation among our student body. In addition, these two sections will provide ample space for both Valley Southwoods and Valley High School student seating.
  3. Junior high students will have one section between the high school section and general fan seating. This section will be along the 40-50 yard line.
    • WHY? We want to encourage our junior high students to connect to the game and show off their Tiger spirit. It also provides an opportunity for administrators and parents to observe the junior high section and will help maintain positive behavior.
  4. One section along the lower level will be open for all general fan seating. This section lies along the 50-40 yard line and is between the junior high and elementary family sections.
    • WHY? Along with all of the upper deck seating for adult fans, we want to provide a prime space on the lower level for seeing all the action up close.
  5. The football team will warm-up on the south side of the football field.
    • WHY? We want players to be close to the WDMCS student body, Valley Marchmasters, as well as the cheer and dance squads.
  6. There will no longer be an elementary student section. Instead, three sections on the lower level of the stadium will be for elementary families. These sections will be along the 40-10 yard lines closest to the entrance on the north side of the stadium.
    • WHY? Young families often need quick access to restrooms, concessions, and potentially an early exit before the game has ended. Placing elementary families in this area provides great views of the game and easy access to a variety of services.

We are excited about the Tigers’ upcoming season! Valley hosts its first game of the 2018 campaign with a 7 p.m. kickoff against Southeast Polk this Friday, Aug. 24. The Valley Marchmasters will perform during pregame. WDMCS junior high and high school students with activity ticket stickers on their IDs will gain free entrance into the game. Tickets for all varsity football games are $6 for adults and K-12 students without activity tickets. Tickets can be purchased with cash or card at the gate.
