“I encourage all students to consider participating in interscholastic athletics,” said BCPS Superintendent Dr. Darryl L. Williams. “Competing in sports is a great way to make friends, stay physically and mentally healthy, and strengthen discipline.”

“We are extremely excited about the return of our traditional fall athletic season on August 11,” said Michael Sye, BCPS coordinator of athletics. “Our athletic directors, and coaches are looking forward to our student athletes returning and taking part in our interscholastic program.”

The BCPS high school fall athletics season will begin on Wednesday, Aug. 11, but online registration is open now for allied soccer, badminton, cheerleading, cross country, field hockey, football, golf, soccer, and volleyball.

The middle school fall athletics season will begin on Monday, Sept. 13. Online registration information for badminton and cross country is available now.

For all BCPS athletics, students must meet eligibility requirements and have a valid pre-participation physical. Questions should be directed to school athletic directors.

Athletics will continue to follow the BCPS mitigation plan in the 2021-22 school year. At this time, all athletes are eligible and strongly encouraged to receive the COVID-19 vaccine.

We continue to work with our health partners to examine practices to keep all students safe.
