Athletic tryouts and practices for most MCPS high school fall sports teams begin Wednesday, August 14. Fall sports include football, field hockey, boys’ and girls’ soccer, girls’ volleyball, girls’ tennis, co-ed cross country, co-ed golf and corollary team handball. Students should consult their school athletic director or visit their school website to determine the day, time and location of the practice. Students must have a yearly physical exam to play athletics at the high school level.
A health form signed by the student, parent and doctor or nurse practitioner, a completed emergency medical card, and a student-parent contract/permission form must be submitted before trying out for a team. Additional forms may be required. Contact your local high school for the forms.
