For over 100 years now, many successful student athletes have called the Antelope Valley High School campus home. This proud tradition lives on as Antelope Valley Athletics look to continue their winning ways well into the next century. AVHS graduates have gone on to attend some of the most highly ranked college athletic programs across the nation and strive to compete at the highest level in both sports, and life.
Currently our Lopes have their sights set on future Golden League and CIF titles and beyond. Lopes are contenders, not just on the field, but in the classroom. Please support our student athletes as they strive to represent Antelope Valley in tradition, athletics, education, and beyond...
As of 4/22/2021,
Outdoor Sports Capacity Increased
Our new guidelines now allow the maximum occupancy limit for outdoor sporting events to be 33% of the maximum venue occupancy. The order also changed the verbiage from "household members" to "observers," meaning fans are now allowed back up to 33% capacity. We will no longer be restricting players to 4 household guests for outdoor athletics. Games will now be open for observers, first come, first serve, up until the maximum capacity. However, we do not expect to reach 33% capacity. 6ft physical distance from non-household members and masks still apply. This is good news!
Indoor Sports Capacity
Indoor sports, on the other hand, have a restriction. For indoor sports, observers are only permitted for the strict purpose of age-appropriate supervision and are limited to immediate household members. The good news is that the number of house-hold members has risen to 4 per participant in an indoor sporting activity. 6ft physical distance from non-household members and masks still apply.
We are excited to announce that Phase One Athletics resumes with on-campus conditioning. All district Phase One safety protocols relating to after school athletics remain in place and will be administered in the same manner as before Winter Break. For detailed information, please visit Reopening Youth Sports.
Even more exciting is the news that, in alignment with the Education-Based Athletics COVID-19 Tier Map, we are able to move forward with athletic competitions for sports that land within the “Purple Tier”. Under this Tier Map, Cross-country athletes are authorized to compete in a modified season. Please contact Mr. Wallerstien and/or Mr. Perez for further details.
We look forward to this first step in welcoming back our student athletes to outdoor conditioning and competition! For all students interested in getting cleared and contacting coaches for sport specific conditioning information, please open up and read this document:
