All athletes must be registered with Family ID in order to participate in sports.

 

Below is valuable information for you and your student-athletes as we begin the Winter 2021-22 season. The current COVID-19 guidelines in effect for all athletic sports teams at Our Lady of Lourdes is as follows:
All athletes who are attending practice or games indoors, using the locker rooms indoors or using the weight room indoors need to be wearing masks covering the nose. Also, according to NYS if they are masked whether they are vaccinated or not, (as long as masks are being worn properly) they will not have to quarantine if exposed. Spectators for indoor games will also be required to wear a mask.
Athletes who are fully vaccinated can refrain from quarantine following a known exposure if they are asymptomatic, facilitating continued participation in fall sports.
Also, if your son or daughter is experiencing any of the COVID-19 symptoms they should not be attending any practices or games.
While it is expected that this plan being presented will be successful if current conditions hold, maximum flexibility by all parties is important moving forward. Changes in rates of transmission and/or other local data, effectiveness of OLL mitigation measures and/or pedagogical approaches, or additional State or Federal recommendations or mandates may necessitate adjustments to the current plan.
Please see the tryout schedule below for all sports as well as an email directory of coaches if you have a specific question for them.

Transfer Rule Guideline

Effective with the 2017-2018 school year, 8th graders who have competed at the high school level (freshman, JV and/or Varsity sport) at their previous school before coming to Our Lady of Lourdes will be subject to the transfer rule as set forth by the New York State Public High School Athletics Association (NYSPHSAA). Paraphrased, the transfer rule states that any student in grades 8-12 who transfers without a corresponding change in residence to the Arlington Central School District shall not be eligible to participate at the Varsity level in any interscholastic athletic contest in a particular sport for a period of one (1) year if as a 9-12 student participated in that sport during the one (1) year period immediately preceding his/her transfer. NOTE: Students in grades 9-10, shall be eligible to participate at the sub-varsity (Freshmen and/or JV) level and practice at all levels, while students in grades 11-12 shall be limited to practice only. (July 2019).
 
Students who transfer from any school to Our Lady of Lourdes that resides within the Arlington Central School district boundaries shall receive a waiver from the Transfer Rule and they can participate immediately at any level. Such a transfer without penalty will only be permitted once in a high school career.
