Attention Incoming Freshman Students to AHS: If you are interested in joining the freshman football team at Arlington High School, attached are a couple of documents that should help with the transition. One is the physical packet. This contains documents that will need to be filled out and returned to Coach Ulbricht by the start of summer workouts. If a player does not have a physical, he won’t be allowed to attend workouts. The second is the summer workout schedule for both the months of June and July. We ask that parents please email Coach Ulbricht at firstname.lastname@example.org with an email address to be added to our email list. These emails will help keep you informed and up to date on things . If you have any questions or concerns please email coach. We are looking forward to you joining the AHS Football Family.
