Will 2020-2021 fall athletics be played?

On September 11, 2020, the Maryland Public Secondary Schools Athletic Association (MPSSAA) finalized its plan for a two-semester return to athletics. With this plan, athletic practices and competitions will not resume until the second semester. Per MPSSAA, winter sports will begin on February 1, 2021, fall sports on March 15, 2021, and spring sports on April 26, 2021. 

HCPSS coaches are permitted to engage with prospective team members for 60-90 minutes one day a week through January 22, 2021, excluding school closings or religious observance days. The schedule for those meeting days are: Mondays, fall sports; Wednesdays, winter sports; Fridays, spring sports.

Coaches may engage virtually with prospective team members for 60-90 minutes one day each week through January 22, 2021, excluding school closings or religious observance days. Parents/guardians may register their student-athlete for virtual engagement sessions via HCPSS Connect. After logging in, select More Options from the left menu and then Athletic Registration from the middle of the page.
