Pre-Game Music Policy

Gettysburg College Athletic Communications Pre-Game Music Policy

In an effort to maintain a fan-friendly environment at home athletic contests, the Gettysburg College Athletic Communications Office requires its teams to adhere to a pre-game music policy.

While a pre-game warm-up track may be created by a particular team, it is not mandatory. If a team declines to submit pre-game warm-up music, it will be provided by the Athletic Communications Office.

  1. All music must be submitted to the Athletic Communications office on a CD for approval at least seven days prior to the first game to allow time for screening. The CD must be accompanied by a track list that identifies each song by title and artist.
  2. Music may not contain lyrics that are inappropriate for public broadcasting in a family environment. Inappropriate subject matter includes but is not limited to: profanity, violence, alcohol or drug use, homophobia, and sexual references.  In addition, music that contains bleeped-out lyrics will not be accepted.
  3. If a CD contains any song that is deemed unacceptable, the team will be notified and may submit a revised CD up to three days prior to the first game. If the revised CD is also unacceptable, the team will lose its right to provide its own warm-up music for the rest of the season. Any future music would be provided by the Athletic Communications Office.
  4. All of the above regulations apply to walk-up music for the baseball team.
  5. Music will begin at the following times:
  • Baseball/Softball:  A maximum of 90 minutes prior to game time
  • Basketball: A maximum of 60 minutes prior to tip-off
  • Field hockey: A maximum of 60 minutes prior to game time
  • Football: A maximum of 90 minutes prior to kick-off
  • Lacrosse: A maximum of 60 minutes prior to face-off/draw
  • Soccer: A maximum of 60 minutes prior to game time
  • Swimming: A maximum of 60 minutes prior to meet start
  • Volleyball: A maximum of 60 minutes prior to game time
  • Wrestling: A maximum of 60 minutes prior to match start
  • Cross country/golf/track & field/tennis: NA
