Team COVID-19 Updates

Please visit this page often for team updates related to the pandemic.

The health and safety of our student athletes is our top priority. All decisions regarding sports teams will be determined by Arlington Public Schools. Please visit their website for the latest updates.

The below guidelines have been set by APS and Yorktown High School and apply to all winter sports teams.

SPECIFIC REQUIREMENTS TO PARTICIPATE IN WRESTLING

  • APS has mandated that all winter sports participants must be either vaccinated or participate in daily COVID testing at the school.  Due to the nature of wrestling, all athletes will need to participate in daily COVID testing to be on the team.  Testing is required by APS in order to participate indoors without a mask. Since wrestling can’t safely occur with a mask, all participants will need to be tested daily as part of the free COVID testing offered at Yorktown at lunch or after school.

  • Wrestlers are required to participate in daily testingParents please enroll your student for testing by using this link. Testing is offered free of charge daily during all three lunch periods and after-school. 

  • Prior to participating parents need to email your wrestler’s physical and vaccination card to yhsphysicals@apsva.us with the student’s name in the subject line and a copy of the completed, legible vaccination card and the completed VHSL physical form. This is required in order to participate in the first practice.
