Announcements:

This is the latest on Athletics as of Nov. 5, 2020:

 

Prince William County Public Schools is continuously evaluating the middle school athletics program for the 2020-21 school year. We have postponed any potential start of middle school athletics until at least February 9, 2021.  We will provide additional updates when new information is available. If you have any questions or concerns, please reach out to your school’s athletic coordinator or the PWCS supervisor of student activities, Kelly Gardner at 703-791-7353.  

 

 



Uniform message for middle school athletics.

We are exploring creative solutions to combat the many challenges. The availability of field space, transportation limitations, and scheduling conflicts with officials are a few examples of the challenges we will face. We are confident that as a team of stakeholders, we can all be flexible in our efforts to accomplish the goal of providing our middle schools students the opportunity to safely compete in interscholastic athletics.

Please plan on your student’s participation by making sure they have a current physical dated May 1, 2020, or after, complete the online concussion training, and regularly monitor your school’s websites for updates. We hope to see everyone on the courts, fields, and playing surfaces on December 14, 2020.

*Students are not permitted to walk home after try outs, practice or a game unless they normally walk to school in the morning 
*Parents must pick their child up after try outs and practice by 5:20 p.m.; after a game 6:30 p.m, in the back of the building, unless advised otherwise. Carpooling is strongly suggested.  There are two activity buses that have limited routes.  If you are in the math/science program, these buses will not take you home.



**IT IS STRONGLY RECOMMENDED that you do not wait until the night before try outs begin, to complete online concussion training.
If you do this, you run the risk of not being able to complete your training, if the system is overwhelmed by an excessive volume of people trying to take their training at the same time. So do your training early.
