Keeping your child healthy

Parents, remember that personal hygiene for athletes is essential to preventing infection, so please make sure you stay vigilant when it comes to your child's health during the wrestling season. Make sure that your child showers right after wrestling practice or meets using soap and water and check their skin on a regular basis for anything out of the ordinary. More information on preventing skin infections in athletes can be found at this Pennsylvania Department of Health link.
