CHS is also offering an All Sports Pass, good for general admission to all district home sporting events this school year for a one-time $100 fee. "We have six home games this year, and this is a great value for our fans," said Clinton High School athletic director Clay Norton. "High school sports are such a great value. For $7.50 per game, you get reserve seats with bench backs. "We have a great home schedule with some of the top teams in the state coming to Arrow Field. I hope our fans will step up their support this year for the Arrow football team. It would be great to sell out the reserved section. The team really feels the support when we pack the stands."
