Aug. 12, 2020 - High School Athletics Calendar Updates

  • The N.C. High School Athletic Association today released new calendars outlining when high school athletic seasons are allowed to resume. 

    This guidance indicates when individual sports may begin tryouts, practices and competitions. School districts may start tryouts no earlier than the prescribed dates, but they are not obligated to start on those dates. 

    WCPSS leadership will continue to monitor public health trends in our community in determining if and when our student-athletes may safely return to play. 

    The new calendar released today, which may change if public health conditions worsen, allows tryouts to begin on the following dates:

    Nov. 4  - cross country, volleyball 

    Nov. 23 - swimming and diving 

    Dec. 7  - men’s and women’s basketball 

    Jan. 11 - men’s soccer, men’s and women’s lacrosse

    Feb. 8 - football

    March 1 - men’s and women’s golf, men’s tennis, women’s soccer, softball

    April 12 - baseball, women’s tennis, outdoor men’s and women’ track and field, wrestling

    May 1 - Cheerleading Invitational

    NCHSAA does not govern women’s gymnastics or Stunt. We will evaluate if and when it may be feasible to resume those sports.

    For now, all WCPSS athletic activities remain suspended indefinitely. District leaders will continue discussions about how and when we may safely resume athletic activity. We will share updates as soon as they are available.
