Alberta Amateur Wrestling Association Guidance on Stage 2 Training (June 15, 2021)

DISCLAIMER: There is still a risk of COVID-19 transmission. Participation in any wrestling-related

activities is completely optional. AAWA insurance has excluded COVID-19 from our coverage so all

training is at the risk of the individual participant and/or their parents or legal guardians. Any

participant that has close contact with individuals at a high risk of infection must know the risks

involved and may choose to not participate at this current time

Testing Information can be found at the following link:

These guidelines may change at any time for any reason including, but not limited to, the

recommendations and/or mandates of the Alberta Amateur Wrestling Association, Government of

Alberta and Alberta Health Services. Any changes will be communicated as soon as possible to all

members. There remains the possibility that an increase in COVID-19 cases may result in the

immediate suspension of all training activities at any time.
