Athletics

Fall Athletics Returns:

In case you were unaware, BCPS has decided to run our Fall athletic season from February 13-April 17th. In the next few days, I will be posting specific days and times for practices/tryouts. Please be aware that safety is our number one concern so there is additional paperwork that needs to be filled out prior to participation. (See attachments) In addition, BCPS plans on trying to have one-way buses for students but the expectation is that students will be picked up immediately after practice. More information on pickup locations (primarily local elementary schools) will be posted as soon as I receive them.

 

Eligibility:

BCPS has modified the athletic eligibility standards for the remaining of the school year.  The new standard is a 1.0 with no more than 2 E's.  If your child is interested in playing a fall sport and meet this criteria, they are now eligible.  I would need online registration and a physical.  Questions, please email me at jmarkle@bcps.org. 

 

 

This is a message from Baltimore County Public Schools. The Maryland State Department of Education and Maryland Public Secondary Schools Athletic Association have notified BCPS that the Board-approved motion to waive academic eligibility for athletics was not approved. We are awaiting the formal notification in writing. Therefore, the standard BCPS academic eligibility requirements will remain in effect for the fall and spring seasons. Thank you.


The following documents are needed in order to participate:

 

1) Online registration

2) Physical signed by Dr.

3) BCPS Screening paper (Bring first day of practice)

4) Student History form (Bring first day of practice)

5) Covid 19 Awareness form (Bring first day of practice)

6) Return to Play Covid Form (If your child has had Covid in the past, you will need this form filled out by a doctor in order for participation.) This is a State Guideline. 7) Have your child email me (jmarkle@bcps.org) or message me on Schoology to let me know they plan on participating, so we can begin to build a roster. I will need to know the following:

· Name

· Sport

· Grade

· Physical - When was it turned in and how? (i.e. Schoology, emailed or on file from previous time.) With our system being down I will need extra time to upload information.
