     Another New Update Jan 12:

    *2020-21 Athletic News Update*

    We will not be competing with other schools this year.  Instead we will be staying at our own school offering skill development. We will have number liomitations and will try to accomodate grade 7 and grade 8 first then open up to grade 6 after if there is room.  This affects mostly indoor sports such as basketball and cheerleading.  Grade 6 if you sign up for basketball, wait until you read on this site to get a physical but do NOT get one yet.  

    Hilburn will be allowed to come to our school during your in school cohort days. Hilburn will follow the same covid protocols that our VA students will have to comply with before being allowed into our building and any practices which is to go through screening at our front entrance. You will also need to provide transportation to our school and home at 4:30 pm after practices. If you need bus transportation, indicate that on the sign up sheet.

    If you had a physical and turned in paperwork last year (meaning you are in grade 8 this year), the physical page will be good for this year but you will have to fill out the other new 4 pages from the 2020-21 Athletic Participation Forms.  If you are new to athletics, then you will need to complete the entire package that is listed below. (Print the package and take the physical page to your Doctor for a physical then make sure that every page is fully completed with printed names and information along with all signatures, initials, and dates.) If the forms are not completely filled out in every sense of the word complete, you will not be allowed to stay for practice.

    Calendar:

    • Season 1- January 25-February 19.
      • Boys’ Basketball, Girls’ Basketball and Cheerleading
    • Season 2- February 22-March 26
      • Volleyball, Girls’ Soccer, Football and Cheerleading
    • Season 3- April 7-May 14
      • Softball, Boys’ Track and Field, Girls’ Track and Field, Boys’ Soccer

    Students will be able to participate when they are at school with their cohorts while virtual only student will be assigned to a cohort balancing the numbers out.  The indoor and outdoor max limit will be determined by the sport areas (such as the gym or cafeteria) for capacity that wil be decided by the Administration, Athletic Director and Coaches.

    Students will have to follow all current protocols including wearing the mask over the mouth and nose at all times.  It might be a good idea if you started playing with the mask on at home to get used to this protocol.  Locker rooms and water fountains are not to be used.  Students are to wear clothes to school that they will participate in practices since there will be no changing.  Water bottles must be brought to school with water in them for their practices.  Virtual students will have to undergo a screening before entering the school.  If you need transportation after practices to get home, please email me at bclose@wcpss.net.

    I will post more information as it becomes available.  Make sure you complete the sign up located above before January 10 by noon so we can balance our numbers.  Thank you!

    For New Transfer Students: Transfer student who would like to try out for a sport team, you must complete the athletic participation forms (all 5 pages) with the first two pages (out of 7) are eligibility and concussion information sheets for you to keep.  In addition, please bring a copy of your report card with attendance record and year you began grade 7.  This is all required to determine eligibility and often times it delays try outs due to these papers being transferred to our school and placed into record.  Save a copy of all forms for your own records as well.  Thank you!
