Dear TJ Parents and Athletes,

The remaining winter sports (wrestling, track & field, swim & dive, and gymnastics) will start on Monday December 14, 2020. There is a very specific pre-activity screening protocol that must be followed. Please read carefully so that there can be a smooth start on Monday. Best of Luck to all Athletes this Winter Season! 


  • All students will need to complete their sport specific Google form EVERY DAY that there is a sport activity (practice or game). This form must be completed after 4pm but before they arrive to practice. (Entries before 4pm are deleted every day). Students can bookmark this link on their device. Coaches will also have a QR code if the student runs into issues.
  • Students MUST arrive in their car and STAY in their car until cleared by TJ Staff.
  • Students need to arrive at the designation screening location for their sport.
  • Student MUST wear a mask during the check-in process as well as throughout athletic participation (practices and games) for basketball and track & field. Gymnastics, wrestling, and swim & dive participants should be masked when not engaged in physical/contact activity.
  • Students with a temperature of and greater than 100.4 during the screening will be turned away from practice and cannot return until they are symptom free for 24 hours and have a note from a practitioner clearing them to return to athletic participation.
  • Students must be appropriately dressed for practice (indoors and outdoors). There will be no access to locker rooms.
  • Students need to have 32 oz of water.

If the athlete still needs to turn in the their physical, they should bring it on their first day and give it to the athletic trainer (wrestling, gymnastics, track & field) and give it to their coach (swim & dive).
  • You must be signed up for your sport under the athletic registration and completed the concussion education and emergency care card.
  • To check your status, create/sign into your account on Athletic Registration If your Incomplete Registration Tab is GRAY then you are COMPLETE. You should click on the IMPORTANT DATES and see your physical date there.
  • Coaches will have access to a compliance report with everyone that has completed all three items. Students that are not compliant will be sent to the athletic trainer to check eligibility. Students without required items will be sent home.
  • Once athletes make the team, they will need to complete the Parent/Guardian Health Screening Commitment Form in either SIS ParentVue or turn in the hard copy to the coach. Athletes will not be eligible for game participation until this form is completed.

The Virginia Department of Health (VDH) recently recommended the following: “During times of substantial COVID-19 activity VDH strongly advises athletes to wear masks at all times during group training, competition, and on the sidelines.”

With everyone’s help, we look forward to a successful season!
