The high school interscholastic athletics virtual program is available to all students at the high school level – no cuts. The high school virtual athletic season consists of a minimum of three student-athlete and coach engagement sessions per week (corollary sports will meet two times per week), over the course of five weeks. The spring virtual season is scheduled to occur between December 14 – January 22, 2021.
All students participating in the spring virtual season, as part of the MCPS interscholastic athletics program, must complete the online registration process. Registration is done electronically through the Winston Churchill Athletics Registration form, Spring Registration. Students and parents/guardians who have difficulty with registration should contact the Athletic Specialist Jesse Smith at Jesse_R_Smith@mcpsmd.org . Registration will be open until December 13th.
There will be no tryouts during this time. All students athletes are welcome to join any team they would like to participate on, they just need to be registered and have a physical on file from the last year (2019 – 2020). Given the unprecedented circumstances, for students who are unable to secure an updated physical, MCPS will extend the expiration date of an existing physical by one calendar year. To the extent a student does not have a physical on file with the school, the student will need to obtain one. Due to the strenuous nature of selected activities, each student is encouraged to consult their physician concerning fitness to participate in the program. During any live engagement, parents/guardians and students must ensure that surroundings are free of obstacles and that an appropriate plan is in place on how to access help in the event of an emergency. Physical Form page 5 & The Covid checklist must be returned for those needing to submit a physical.
