The first day of tryouts for Fall Sports is on Wednesday August 12, 2020. Once teams are selected, practices or contests will occur every day until the end of the season. Make sure your family’s summer vacation travels are completed prior to 8/12/20. Most of our teams have had competitive tryouts in years past (meaning cuts are made) so once tryouts are complete, coaches will not offer additional tryouts. If you want to be considered for a team, you need to be at tryouts on Wednesday August 12, 2020.
Another frequent question is- can I tryout for more than one Fall sport? The answer is no. The State of Maryland has set time limits on how long an athlete can practice each day. This precludes anyone from playing two sports at the same time.
Fall Sports are: Cheerleading (V & JV); Boys & Girls Cross Country; Field Hockey (V & JV); Football (V & JV); Golf; Team Handball (starts 2nd week of school); Poms; Boys & Girls Soccer (V & JV); and Girls Volleyball (V & JV).
In order to tryout, an athlete needs to be registered by their parent/guardian through the online registration portal. The portal will open around July 15th. Each athlete must have a valid sports physical within the last year on MCPS Form SR-8. The Medical Eligibility Form (last page) should be uploaded (either a scan or a picture of the page) into the portal when your registration is being completed.
A detailed list of exact practice times, dates & locations will be released in early August 2020.
If you have any general questions, feel free to email the Athletic Director at Edward_R_Dalton@mcpsmd.org or if you have sport specific questions please email the coach directly. A list of all coaches can be found on the front page of our website.
