Wolverines News · Registration for virtual Fall sports is NOW OPEN!

Wolverine Nation,

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 fall virtual season is scheduled to occur between September 14 – October 16, 2020.

Please note during the Fall virtual season the following sports will be provided: Football, Girls Soccer, Boys Soccer, Cheerleading, Field Hockey,Golf, Girls Volleyball, Cross Country and Team Handball. *Pom Pons will be offered during the winter season virtually.*

All students participating in the fall virtual season, as part of the MCPS interscholastic athletics program, must complete the online registration process. Registration is done electronically through the Watkins Mill Athletics Registration form. Students and parents/guardians who have difficulty with registration should contact the Athletic Specialist, Lisa Magness at Lisa_Magness@mcpsmd.org.

Physicals: Students must have a valid physical on file with the school.  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.

We are excited to provide your student with the greatest education-based virtual athletics season during such unprecedented times. WE CAN, WE WILL, WE R.A.I.S.E!
