Letter from Athletic Director

Date: July 21, 2021

 

Dear Mariner Students and Families,

I hope this letter finds you well and is able to provide the most pertinent information in regards to resuming in-person athletics.

It is the mission of the Athletic Department at AHS to provide each student with an opportunity to participate in a quality athletic program.  The Athletic Department is committed to supporting all school athletic programs and encourages students to participate in more than one sport.

Each program will provide students with a unique opportunity to engage in competitive endeavors and develop athletic skills.  Each program fosters honesty, determination, preparedness, self-control, team work, and academic excellence.  Each program is supervised and conducted within the framework of the school system by specially trained and certified coaches.  Coaches’ primary focus is to support the development of young people in becoming positive and successful adults.

Participation in extracurricular athletics is not a right, it is a privilege afforded to students who qualify under established eligibility rules and who adhere to the Aptos High School rules and those of the team on which they are participating.   Athletes will also be asked to spend many hours outside of the school day to achieve the skill level necessary to successfully compete in athletics at the interscholastic level.  

Athletes must follow the guidelines in the PVUSD Student-Athlete and Parent Handbook.  The handbook and other athletic related information can be found at: Aptos High School Athletics. You can also see the Athletic Director or team coach for additional information. 

 

*****Unfortunately, this year we will not have our Physical Exam Night on campus until the end of the year in May, which means, if your student is an incoming 9th grader, or has not received a physical exam in the last 12 months, you will need to see your family physician or visit a satellite clinic (i.e. Dr. on Duty) for a check up. Please see link below for information on how to sign your student up online for athletics. Physicals from last year are still on file for all athletes who participated in a sport.

AHS Required Athletic Paperwork and Online Sign-up

In order to participate in after-school athletics, each student-athlete must turn-in eight forms. These forms should be filled out and docu-signed online at athleticclearance.com (see link below for instructions)
