The first day of tryouts for Fall 2018 sports is Wednesday August 8, 2018. This date is set by the MPSSAA for all Maryland public high schools. Make sure your family vacation plans are completed before 8/8/18, because if your child make the team, there will be practices or contests every day through the end of the fall season.
The following sports are offered:
Cheerleading (Varsity & JV), Boys & Girls Cross Country, Field Hockey (Varsity & JV), Football (Varsity & JV), Golf, Poms (Pom tryouts are in May/June 2018), Boys Soccer (Varsity & JV), Girls Soccer (Varsity & JV), Girls Volleyball (Varsity & JV), and Corollary Team Handball (begins in mid-September).
The registration portal will open in July 2018. It is accessed through the MCPS Parent Portal https://portal.mcpsmd.org/public/ . In the meantime, make sure you can access the portal. Your child will also need a current Physical (less than 1 year old) which can be uploaded into the portal as a scanned document or an image of it. All other paperwork has been replaced by the portal and is no longer needed.
Another message will be posted with detailed directions for registration when the portal opens.
